– Garlic – Sourdough starter – Filtered water – Bread flour – Sea salt

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 400ºF. Cut the top off of the garlic bulb, place it on a piece of foil, and drizzle oil over the garlic bulb. Seal the foil and bake or air fry for 30 minutes.

Step 2

In a bowl, add the sourdough starter and water, stirring until dissolved. Add flour and salt and stir until a thick, shaggy dough forms.

Step 3

Finish mixing dough by hand, then cover the garlic sourdough and let the dough rest for 30 minutes. Once the garlic is done roasting, let cool for 5 minutes.

Step 4

Then, mash the roasted garlic. Lightly flour your countertop and pull the dough from the bowl. Add the roasted garlic and cheese and knead in to mix for one minute.

Step 5

Return the sourdough to the bowl, cover with a damp towel, and let rise overnight in a warm space for 8-10 hours. Sprinkle flour on your countertop.

Step 6

Shape the dough by stretching and folding for one minute. Let dough rest for 10 minutes. Prepare a banneton by flouring. Add dough to the bowl and let rise for 30 – 60 minutes.

Step 7

Preheat your oven to 450º. Cover the dough bowl with parchment paper, and turn it over onto the countertop. Slash the top of the loaf with a sharp serrated knife.

Step 8

Gently lower the parchment paper dough into a heavy pot. Add the lid. Add the covered pot oven and bake for 30 minutes.

Step 9

Remove the lid from the pot and bake for 20 more minutes. Then remove the bread from the pot and bake it directly on the oven rack for 5-10 minutes to crisp the exterior.

Step 10

Let cool for 1 hour before cutting and serving.

Store sourdough bread at room temperature in a bag for up to 5 days.
