Roasted Garlic Spread

Condiments, Dressings, Sauces

  • Makes 3/4 cup.


  • 6 large heads garlic
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Spicy Pita Chips, recipe follows
  • Spicy Pita Chips:
  • 6 pitas
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil


Preheat oven to 350°. Remove top quarter of garlic heads, without peeling. Place on foil-lined baking sheet and rub 1 teaspoon of oil into top of each head. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper and place, cut side down, on baking sheet. Bake until cloves are soft and golden, about 1 hour. Garlic takes on a sweet flavor when roasted. Remove from the oven and let sit until cool enough to handle. Squeeze each head of garlic to expel the cloves into a bowl. Mash into a paste. Set aside until needed. It is good alone spread on pita chips, or when spread in a thin layer under chopped tomatoes or your favorite vegetable garnishes.

Preheat oven to 350°. Cut each pita into 8 triangles. Place pitas in bowl and toss well with remaining ingredients. Spread out on a sheet pan. Bake until golden brown and crisp, about 10 to 15 minutes, shaking the pan once during cooking. Cool and serve. Makes 48 chips.
