hack off top of garlic bulb, drizzle with olive oil, broil for 20 minutes or until translucent
very unspecific directions to make hummus:
1 can chickpeas [low salt if possible]
~1/2 cup tahini [or whatever was left in the jar from before]
saute garlic lightly in olive oil until translucent, or use 2-3 cloves of roasted garlic-see first step. pour off and discard about 1/2 cup of chickpea brine. blend remaining [unrinsed] chickpeas with tahini, garlic-olive oil, salt, and pepper. add lemon juice to taste.
random potato mash experiment:
large korean sweet potato [batata koreana]
1/2 bag baby carrots
2/3 C buttermilk
3 T butter
peel and dice sweet potato [korean sweet potato is white not orange on the inside and a little smoother, but generally the same]. dice carrots into coins. boil potato and carrot until fork-tender. drain, and add remaining ingredients. mix by hand [annoying] or in a stand-up mixer. reheat if necessary and serve.
