Serve it with fresh bread
The other day my husband made another loaf of Seed filled and yummy Dakota Bread for us. He’s been on quite the bread baking adventure lately, and he’s getting very good at it! (which makes me a happy camper!)
Garlic Grating Dish
So, I thought I’d whip up a cool little Garlic Dipping Oil to go with all that seedy goodness, and I wanted to use my cool French-style garlic grater that I got back in November from Uncommon Goods.
I love this little dish, both for grating and for serving garlic dipping sauces!
Garlic Dip for Bread
I decided that this Garlic Dipping Oil should also be called “Vampire-Be-Gone”. But, just because it’s “Vampire-Be-Gone” doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have bite! Raw garlic will bite you back! But, it’s oh-so-good!
Garlic Dipping Oil Recipe Notes:
If you don’t care for spicy or haven’t had raw garlic before, you might want to start with half a clove of garlic. It is fairly strong.
I like using dried herbs for sauces like this. Or course, there’s the reason that the herbs last a long time in the cupboard and you can pull them out on the spur of the moment, but I like them also because dried herbs have a nice flavor and texture if you aren’t cooking them, where fresh herbs can be a little rough if not chopped well. And, you don’t have to do any chopping of dried herbs (always a big plus in my book!).
You could also add a splash of balsamic vinegar to this Garlic Dipping Oil. I love the classic combination of balsamic and oil for dipping bread.
Garlic Dipping Oil Recipe:
- 1 garlic clove peeled
- ¼ cup good quality extra virgin olive oil
- ½ teaspoon dried oregano
- ½ teaspoon dried basil
- 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/8 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
- Moisten the garlic grater with a little cold water. Hold the grater with one hand, and with the other hand, hold the garlic clove between your fingers while holding the root end. Move the garlic around on the grater making sure not to make contact with your fingers. Discard the root end of the garlic.
- Add the oil to the garlic in the dish, and mix in the remaining ingredients.
- Dip crusty bread of your choice into the dipping oil.
