This is a perfect side dish for fall. You can change the vegetables according to what is available at your store. Butternut squash, acorn squash, and Brussels sprouts would all be good too.
Another nice thing about this dish is that it’s easy to prepare, and you can get the rest of your meal going while it cooks.
As the garlic cooks, the flavor will become mellow and the cloves get soft and spreadable. They’re delicious spread on toasted baguette slices.
To easily remove the skin from the garlic, use the back of your hand to press down on the clove enough to pop the skin without smashing it.
