Recipe: Black Garlic Dip
This is a customer and spice merchant favorite. Sweet black garlic combined with cream cheese and crunchy walnuts makes for a great veggie dip or sandwich spread.
- 1 Organic Black Garlic Bulb
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1 Tbsp. Freeze Dried Shallots (or fresh minced shallots)*
- 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup toasted walnuts, chopped
- pinch of salt
*If using dried shallots, reconstitute them in 2 Tbsp. of hot water before using. Discard excess water.
Peel the skin away from all of the garlic cloves. Add peeled cloves to a food processor with sour cream and olive oil and process until smooth. Add remaining ingredients except walnuts. Process until mixure is smooth, stopping to scrape down sides of bowl as necessary. Transfer to a medium bowl and fold in walnuts. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours to allow flavors to meld.
Serve with your favorite vegetables and/or crackers. Great as a sandwich spread.
