Are you hungry yet? 101 Steak shared their recipe for roasted garlic and marscapone cheese dip. Enjoy!
Roasted Garlic and Marscapone Cheese Dip Recipe:
3 Heads Garlic
1 lb. Mascarpone Cheese
1/3 lb. Parmesan Cheese (grated)
1 Tbsp. Chopped Parsley
1 Tbsp. Chopped Chives
1 Tbsp. Fresh Lemon Juice
1 tsp. Crushed Red Pepper
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
Wrap each head of garlic individually with a piece of aluminum foil and roast in a 350-degree oven for 45-60 minutes or until the garlic is very soft (the cooking of the garlic will mellow the harshness of it). Cool the garlic and then cut it in half, squeeze out the cloves in to a mixing bowl and smash the cloves with the back of a fork, then add all other ingredients and mix vigorously (if you have a food processor or an electric hand mixer this process will be a lot easier). Serve chilled in a decorative bowl and served with warm pita bread, tortilla chips, vegetable crudités, or it can be used in tortilla wraps or as a spread on sandwiches.
