  • 1/4 tsp agave
  • 1/2 tbsp oregano
  • 3 tbsp parsley
  • 2 tbsp basil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375.

  5. Remove roasted garlic from cloves and add.
  6. Add all additional ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. Split into 2 batches and blend until smooth (using blender that can handle high heat mixtures) or use immersion blender.
  7. To make herb oil, chop herbs and garlic finely. In a bowl, whisk all ingredients well.
  8. Serve with a drizzle of herb oil, crispy chickpeas, corn, fresh herbs, etc.
