Ingredients

  • 1 bulb garlic
  • Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

  • Truffle honey for garnish (optional)

Preparation

Pre-heat the oven to 450°F.


Cut the top of the garlic bulb to expose the cloves. Brush with EVOO and season liberally with salt and pepper. Wrap tightly in foil and roast for 40-45 minutes; let cool.


In a medium size bowl, mix together the ricotta, thyme and milk. Season with salt and pepper.


Once the garlic bulb is cool, squeeze all of the garlic cloves out and mash them into the ricotta mixture with a fork.
