Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup olive oil divided
  • 1 bulb garlic about 12 cloves
  • 1 teaspoon salt divided
  • 1 teaspoon pepper divided
  • 32 slices baguette
  • 8 ounces feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1/4 cup parsley minced

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Slice garlic bulb in half exposing the garlic heads and place in the center of a large piece of tin foil. Drizzle each half with half of the olive oil (2 tablespoons), salt (1/2 teaspoon) and pepper (1/2 teaspoon). Wrap foil tightly around garlic and roast until caramelized, about 30 minutes.
  • While garlic is roasting, place the baguette slices on a large baking sheet and drizzle with remaining olive oil. Bake until golden brown, in the second rack of the 400 degree oven, for about 10 minutes; set aside.
  • While the baguette slices are toasting, place the feta cheese, milk, lemon juice, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a high speed food processor. Once the garlic is done roasting pop out the garlic cloves and add to the food processor. Pulse until whipped and creamy - adding more milk as needed to reach desired consistency. Check for seasoning and adjust to taste.
  • To serve, spread each crostini with whipped feta and sprinkle with pomegranate seeds and minced parsley.
