How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°.

Step 2

Remove white papery skin from garlic head (do not peel or separate the cloves). Wrap head in foil. Bake at 375° for 45 minutes; cool for 10 minutes. Separate cloves; squeeze to extract garlic pulp. Discard skins.

Step 3

Bring 1 cup water to a boil in a saucepan. Add tomatoes; cover and remove from heat. Let stand 10 minutes. Drain tomatoes in a colander over a bowl, reserving 1/4 cup liquid.

Step 4

Place garlic pulp, tomatoes, 1/4 cup reserved liquid, oil, and remaining ingredients in a food processor; process until smooth.

Made this for company and everyone complimented. I liked the flavor (I'm a huge garlic fan), but found the texture a bit dry. Next time I'd use extra oil or tomatoes packed in oil.

We used the oil packed tomatoes (it was what I had on hand), and didn't bother with the additional oil, and we LOVED this recipe.

I usually like sun-dried tomatoes, but these overpowered the dip. Maybe because the recipe used dried rather than packed in oil. The roasted garlic and beans were good, but if I make again I will cut back on the tomatoes to just a couple.

I thought this was much too strong. Most people at the party took one taste and then did not take another. I think it would be better with less garlic.
