The most special thing about this dip is the garlic in it. Not only is this food for enjoyment, but it also helps to support the immune system naturally. Before we talk about the steps to making it, let us first list out the ingredients you need for the dip
· Green garlic (four large heads)
· Six tbsp of olive oil
· Little sprigs of fresh thyme
· About 300 g of soft cheese, either Philadelphia, goat cheese, or ricotta
· A small quantity of milk if required
· Lemon juice (not necessary)
· Two tbsp of fresh herbs that have been chopped (mixing chives, parsley, and tarragon will be nice)
· Two cloves of large green garlic (they should be sliced thinly)
· The first thing to do is to light up the oven and leave it heated at 190C/gas. Pick the garlic heads and slice a piece from each top and place them on the foil. Add about 3-4 tbsp of the olive oil, tuck the thyme in and then wrap. Add pepper and salt as a seasoning and bake the garlic for about 60 minutes until it gets very soft.
· Next, the cheese should be beaten into a bowl until it gets smooth. After squeezing out the roasted garlic, use a fork to mash until it becomes very smooth. Also, beat enough oil or milk in it to make the dipping good and consistent. Beat the herbs in as well and season it to produce a nice taste. You may decide to squeeze in a little lemon juice if needed.
· Lastly, heat 1 tbsp of oil inside a small neat pan, and then, gently fry the garlic you have initially sliced until it becomes golden brown. Then, after draining, you can now scatter the whole garlic on top of the dip. Serve with vegetables.
