Total Time:

Ingredients

  • 1 head garlic
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Rub excess papery skin off garlic head without separating cloves. Slice the tip off, exposing the ends of the cloves. Place the garlic head on a piece of foil, drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and wrap into a package. Put in a baking dish and bake until the garlic is very soft, 40 minutes to 1 hour. Unwrap and let cool slightly.
  3. Squeeze the garlic pulp into a blender or food processor (discard the skins). Add the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil, lime juice, vinegar, ginger, sesame oil and soy sauce; blend or process until smooth. Season with pepper.
