Garlic Oil..Home Made

DSC_1477-001
Hi!
My family loves Garlic Bread. Whenever we visit a Pizzeria or an Italian restaurant, the first order has to be garlic bread. The garlic bread available in restaurants makes use of butter, which makes the calorie count go high. So to make the garlic bread healthier and still tasty I make this garlic oil at home. using this the garlic bread can be made in a jiffy and what’s better is that it’s low in calories too.
This garlic oil can be used in making other salad dressings too and is quite multi purpose. It stays well for a month provided it doesn’t get over before that. It’s a no effort garlic oil which comes out very handy in cooking and at quite a low cost as compared to the garlic oil available in market.
Ingredients
7-8 thick cloves of garlic
1/2cup EVOO
Method
Crush the garlic in a clean pestle and mortar.
Push the garlic into a bottle and pour  the oil too. Close and shake lightly.
Leave it over night and the garlic oil is ready to use the next day. The flavour gets better as the garlic gets completely absorbed in the oil in the days to come .
Store in air tight bottle/ jar only.
