adapted from the Joy of Cooking. I love roasted garlic and this recipe uses chicken or vegetable stock as options for roasting it (this way, you don't have to ingest all that oil). Use French bread (for serving)...but I like to eat this plain. I have also used this on top of pizza with white sauce. You can also serve with olives and goat cheese or other soft white cheese...perfect for entertaining. YUM!
