  • 1 head garlic
  • 1/2 cup olive oil, plus 1 tbsp
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 sprigs parsley leaves, chopped
  • 1 stick of butter, room temperature
  • 1 baguette loaf


1. Cut the top of the garlic off to reveal the cloves. Pour in the olive oil and 1 tablespoon of water and season with salt. Place the top back onto the garlic and place in a small microwave-safe bowl. Top with a plate that fits over the top of the bowl. Microwave for 8 to 9 minutes on medium power until soft.


2. Remove from the microwave and let cool enough to handle or store in the fridge for up to a week. Once cool, squeeze the garlic in to a bowl and add the spices, parsley, and butter. Serve with bread.
