1 tbsp finely chopped thyme
1 tbsp hot pepper flakes
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

Preheat your grill to a medium heat.
Peel off the outer layers of the garlic, remaining the skin around. Cut the top off its head, about 1/4 inch, and drizzle with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Spray some salt on the top, and wrap it in tinfoil. Roast the garlic on the grill for about 30 minutes, put out and let it cool down.
Squeeze the roasted garlic cloves into a mixing bowl. Add olive oil, hot pepper flakes, lemon juice, chopped parsley leaves, rosemary and thyme together. You can also put some salt and cracked black pepper depending on personal taste. Whisk them to a paste.
