Roasted Garlic Infused Olive Oil

If you’ve ever tasted garlic thats been roasted you know how much the flavor profile changes after it’s been roasted. It’s almost as if the garlic takes on a completely different flavor profile. When you roast the garlic it looses its natural bitter taste and becomes sweet, caramelized, and ends up having a rich-nutty flavor. Are you drooling yet? Haha. Imagine that flavor in the oil you cook with!

Roasted garlic oil is quite literally one of the best ways to add layers of flavor to your food. Flavored oil isn’t overly strong but adds a little something to your food that you didn’t know you needed. This oil can be used with everything you would normally use any other oil for. I.e.: Eggs, fish, chicken, beef, salad dressings, or any vegetable sauté.

One last thing.. You can use all the roasted garlic cloves for all of your cooking, just as you normally would for any recipe that calls for garlic. Except, now the garlic has this amazing rich flavor from being roasted.  Having all of these extra garlic cloves might be the best part about making this oil. As you can tell, I’m slightly obsessed with garlic! Hehe.

I’m so excited for you to try this recipe. Using the oil makes a world of difference and packs such a big punch of flavor. But the best part is it’s so simple to make.
