Roasted garlic is one of my favorite things to eat. I’m sure I smell funky for quite a while after eating it, but I probably smell funky regardless. This recipe requires a little forethought since it takes an hour to roast the garlic in the oven. You could purchase this roasted garlic paste or this minced roasted garlic to have on hand, but your house won’t smell quite as delicious.
So roasting the garlic is easy. Just cut off the top 1/4 of the garlic bulb, drizzle with some olive oil, put in an aluminum foil tent and roast for an hour at 400F. If you don’t want to use foil, you can use this adorable cast iron garlic roaster. Or buy this cool electric garlic roaster contraption which claims to have your garlic roasted in 27 minutes! (Can you tell I got lost in the depths of Amazon?!?)
Once your garlic is nice and soft, squeeze it out and mash it up. Set garlic aside. In a large pan, melt butter over medium heat. Add in cream cheese and chicken broth. Stir until cream cheese is melted. Whisk in garlic and heavy cream and parmesan cheese, simmering for 8 – 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Season with salt, pepper and fresh parsley.
Make this a complete meal…
This low carb roasted garlic cream sauce is amazing on zoodles or spaghetti squash. Additionally, it’s great on vegetables, such as steamed broccoli and cauliflower!
