    This looks SO good and easy!! I have always wanted to roast garlic and didn’t know it was so easy! thanks for sharing!

    I think you did forget to list the “black beans” in that list of items you put in the food processor lol(I know it’s obvious to add those, but thought you may want to correct it lol)

      Thanks! It really is easy. You can also roast it in the bulbs if you prefer. You just slice off the top so that the clove is exposed, drizzle olive oil over it, and then wrap it in foil, place it in a small baking dish, and bake it at 400 F for about 30-35 minutes.

      Thank you! I read over the recipes, but sometimes I don’t notice things like that because I think my brain just sees what is supposed to be there. So, thank you for that!
