Ingredients

  • heads garlic
  • 2 Teaspoons  olive oil, divided
  • 1 Ounce  dark chocolate
  • 3 Tablespoons  cocoa powder
  • 1/4 Cup  pumpkin seeds, crushed
  • 1 Teaspoon  ground flax seeds
  • 1 Teaspoon  miso paste
  •   Ricotta cheese, for serving

Roles are reversed in this recipe, with the chocolate acting as the bold and stronger flavor, and the roasted garlic adding hints of sweetness. 

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Unwrap the outer-shell of the garlic bulbs. Drizzle each evenly with 1 teaspoon of the olive oil.  Wrap each head in tinfoil and place on a baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes. 

Remove the garlic heads from the oven and set aside to cool. Unrwap each head and place on a piece of parchment paper. 

Meanwhile, heat the chocolate in a small pot over medium heat.  Add the cocoa powder, the rest of the olive oil, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, and miso; mix well to combine. Cook until the chocolate has melted.

Drizzle the melted chocolate mixture over the roasted garlic on parchment paper.

Serve with a dollop of ricotta cheese.
