Roast Green Garlic

Green garlic is an early summer treat that's available for just a few weeks a year. Also called wet garlic, these are the bulbs that are picked out of the field to thin the main garlic crop. They have a lighter flavour than the more grown-up bulbs and roasting them brings out their wonderful sweetness.

1. Heat your oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas 6. Trim the top 3cm off the green garlic bulbs and trim off the roots. Wash off any dirt, then halve the garlic bulbs lengthways.
2. Pop the garlic bulb halves in a small roasting tin or baking dish and drizzle over a little olive oil. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for around 30 mins - check after 20 mins to see if they bulbs are golden brown and very tender when pressed with a fork.
3. These roast garlic bulbs are delicious mashed and served on the side of roast chicken, beef or lamb. Mash and stir them into mayonnaise with chopped parsley and Dijon mustard to make an aioli for dunking chips in. Or mash and spread them on toast, then top with a little grated cheese and grill to make quick garlic bread.
