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

Ingredients

  • 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

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.
