Garlic-Herb Aioli


Millennium Cookbook --- sent in by Susan

Susan created this flavorful dip for our summer potluck. "I bought all the vegetables at the farmers' market and steamed them ahead if time. You can choose whatever looks good. This recipe at first seems simple, but putting it all together is actually quite time consuming----best if you prepare the vegetables the day before and the garlic aioli the next". ---Susan

59 ml1/4 c. Millennium Braised Garlic (see below)*
30 ml2 T. light miso
120 ml1/2 c. fresh lemon juice

* Millennium Braised Garlic:
4 large heads garlic
1 c. vegetable stock, dry white wine, or nonalcoholic white wine

Preheat the oven to 350F. Cut the top 1/2 inch off each garlic bulb. Place the garlic heads in a small baking dish. Add the stock, thyme and rosemary.
