Black Truffle Coconut Sugar Grilled Garlic

I posted a photo of a foil boat full of grilled garlic on my Instagram (@the3LLLs) a couple of weeks ago – but now that I’ve used it nearly 5 million different ways, I thought I’d write a quick post about it.

I don’t know why I don’t grill/bake/roast garlic more, it’s so versatile. The flavor is that of a sweet garlicky roasted flavor, but much more mild that firmer or less cooked garlic. It can take on tastes of additional seasonings or oils, not to mention it has a lot of health benefits. Some can’t tolerate a lot of garlic, (most likely because its high FODMAP), but if you can, get it!

I happened to have the rest of a large bag of peeled garlic in my fridge that I knew I wouldn’t be able to use up before it spoiled, so I threw it on the grill.

Black Truffle Coconut Sugar Grilled Garlic

  • Peeled garlic cloves (not trimmed on the ends)
  • Drizzle black truffle oil
  • Fresh cracked black pepper
  • Raw coconut sugar

Create a foil boat and dump the garlic in, drizzle with the oil, generous fresh ground black pepper and top with raw coconut sugar. I did not mix – thought I’d see what would happen with the heat from the bottom caramelizing the sugar, it was YUMMO. I ate a substantial portion by itself right off the grill, have tossed it into a veggie/egg scramble, smashed it on a burger, tossed it cold into a salad, used it as a [paleo] pizza topping, and smeared it on a baked [paleo] pizza crust.
