Roasted Wet Garlic with Herb Goats Cheese.
Wet garlic is freshly harvested garlic which has a milder flavour than the stuff you normally get in the shops which has been dried. the drying process intensifies the flavour. If you are using dried garlic in the recipe just roast it for slightly longer.
Place the garlic bulbs in an oven proof dish and cover with a small amount of oilve oil, season with salt and pepper and roast in an oven on about 180 for 35-45 mins depending on the size.
While the garlic is roasting collect some fresh herbs of choice and finely chop.
Press the fresh herbs around the outside of the goats cheese to give it a crust.
Serve the garlic with the cheese and some good bread - squeeze the garlic which should be roasted to a puree onto the bread and spread a little goats cheese on.
To speed up the roasting process if you are using dried garlic you can wrap in foil before placing in the oven.
