How To Make - Garlic Oil..Home Made

DSC_1477-001

Hi!
My family loves Garlic Bread. Whenever we visit a Pizzeria or an Italian restaurant, the first order has to be garlic bread. The garlic bread available in restaurants makes use of butter, which makes the calorie count go high. So to make the garlic bread healthier and still tasty I make this garlic oil at home.Using this oil, the garlic bread can be made in a jiffy and what’s better is that it’s low in calories too.
This garlic oil can be used in making other salad dressings too and is quite multi purpose. It stays well for a month in refrigerator provided it doesn’t get over before that. It’s a no effort garlic oil which comes out very handy in cooking and is quite economical as compared to the garlic oil available in market.
Ingredients
7-8 thick cloves of garlic
1/2cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil/ EVOO
Method
Crush the garlic in a clean pestle and mortar.
Push the garlic into a bottle and pour  the oil too. Close and shake lightly.
Leave it over night and the garlic oil is ready to use the next day. The flavor of the oil gets better as the garlic gets completely absorbed in the oil in the days to come .
Store in air tight bottle/ jar in refrigerator and outside for a week.
To make the garlic bread, slice a baguette or a bread of your choice. Brush it with the garlic oil and grill it.

Nice!! Could you tell me how you make the garlic bread using this oil? Me and my hubby love garlic bread but we resist the temptation since it has a lot of butter :(

Pari Vasisht said...

Dear Rosh, for making garlic bread take any bread or French loaf. Cut into slices and Apply the garlic oil on either side and sprinkle some salt. Bake at 180C for 7-8mins.
