We ramp up the flavor on may dishes by adding garlic olive oil. It makes a great substitute for butter and is a healthy alternative. We make it ahead and consider it part of the routine of stocking the pantry. By leaving the garlic in the oil, we also have sauteed garlic, or garlic confit, ready to use.
So easy to make:
- step one – put garlic and olive oil in a pan on the stove on low.
- step two – when the garlic starts browning, pour the oil and garlic in a heat proof storage container and store it in the refrigerator (it will keep for a couple of weeks)
