Tips and tricks
- If you don't have an oven you can roast your ingredients on the stove.
- I didn't peel garlic skin before roasting it because I didn't want it to burn in the oven. I removed the skin after I took it out of the oven.
- If you are vegan and you don't want to use chicken stock, you can use some water instead.
