I love, love, love roasted garlic (much to the dismay of my favorite man). Caveat, I love garlic done just about any way except raw. And I mean hey, it only makes you smell bad for a little while so get over it. (But, if you’re planning to have sex with someone for the first time, I’d probably forego this meal for something a little less pungent. Just keeping it real peeps.) Anyway … a super easy and somewhat light meal is to simply roast whole garlic, grill a few portobellos and maybe serve with a side of greens OR if you eat bread, add a loaf of sourdough and spread the roasted garlic on the bread and top with grilled mushrooms. And chutney. Just a thought. Here’s all you need:
ROASTED GARLIC & GRILLED PORTOBELLOS
PREP TIME: 15 minutes COOK: Oven 350 degrees, 30 minutes | Grill med-high, 25-30 minutes
- 2-3 bulbs of garlic (not elephant garlic)
- 2-3 portobello mushrooms
- Olive oil
For the garlic, slice the top off the heads, place on tinfoil, drizzle with olive oil and wrap tightly. That’s it! Place directly on a grill and let sizzle away for about 30 minutes. OR, cook in the oven at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes depending on the size of the bulb
For the mushrooms, either keep them whole, or slice them into one-inch thick pieces. Make sure you wash them first! Brush with olive oil and grill “top side” down for 10 minutes. OR bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Enjoy!!
