Chocolate-Covered Roasted Garlic
Roles are reversed in this recipe, with the chocolate acting as the bold and stronger flavor, and the roasted garlic adding hints of sweetness.
- 2 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
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.
