Grilled Garlic

Grilled Garlic

I’ve always loved garlic, something about the smell and the flavor it adds to dishes lights up my senses. I’ve always had garlic as part of a dish and I’ve never actually bothered to cook it before.  Since I just pick up a new grill, I figured it was about time to take my garlic game to the next level.  Enter grilled garlic!!Cut GarlicStart by cutting the tops off of the garlic heads. Note that the entire thing is called a head and each individual sell is a clove. You want to make sure you cut it such that the tops of the cloves are exposed.Soaking Garlic in Cold WaterSoak the heads of garlic in cold water for 30 minutes to an hour.Garlic on FoilPlace the garlic into a piece of foil, drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.Wrapped GarlicCrumble up the sides.Grill TempPreheat the grill using indirect heat to 350 degrees.  Indirect meaning there is no heat under the garlic but one or more of the other burners are on.Garlic on Indirect Grill HeatHere’s a picture of the garlic on the grill. Its hard to see but I have the middle and left burner on and the right one off to setup the indirect heat.Grilled GarlicAfter an hour you’re left with creamy, gooey garlic that’s perfect as a side or as part of a larger dish.  Garlic comes out to about 1 carb per clove (the cells above) so don’t go crazy and eat the whole thing 🙂
