Roasted Garlic Gravy Recipe (

1 head garlic
1 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. olive oil
1/4 cup flour
2 cups vegetable broth
Salt and pepper, to taste

• Cut off the top of the garlic head, exposing the tops of the cloves.
• Drizzle 1 teaspoonful of the olive oil on top and place in a garlic roaster (a small baking dish or a section of a muffin tin covered with foil also works).
