To roast garlic, trim the top and peel off outer layer. Drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with a big pinch of coarse sea salt. Wrap in foil, and bake for 35 minutes at 400°F.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 4 25°F.

Step 2

Arrange jalapeños, cut side down, on a baking sheet. Roast for about 5 minutes, until tender. Let cool about 5 minutes, until warm to the touch.

Step 3

Meanwhile, mix cheese and garlic in a medium bowl with your hands, making sure the garlic is evenly incorporated. Mix together pine nuts and thyme in another small bowl.

Step 4

Press a generous amount of cheese mixture into 1 jalapeño half, until just overflowing. Press cheese side of pepper in pine nut mixture until well coated, then place on a baking sheet, cheese side up. Repeat with remaining jalapeños.

Step 5

Bake until cheese begins to melt and pine nuts turn golden, about 5 minutes. Turn oven to broil, and cook until pine nuts are slightly golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes more.
