How to roast garlic… super easy!

Roasted Garlic

Don’t you love when you go to a restaurant and have dishes with roasted garlic? Roasted garlic spreads for your bread. Roasted garlic cream sauce. Roasted garlic & thyme broth over roasted chicken. Roasted garlic ice cream…
Ok, that last one is questionable, but you get my point. Haven’t you ever wished you could have the same at home, but didn’t know where to start?

Here’s a secret… Roasting garlic is super easy! All you need is a head of garlic, a tablespoon of olive oil, and aluminum foil.

Heat your oven to 400F.

First thing first, cut the top off of the head of garlic to partially expose the tops of the cloves.

Step two, drizzle the head of garlic with olive oil, both on the exposed cloves and over the skin.

Step three, wrap it up.

Cook it in the oven for 30 minutes at 400F. Remove it from the oven and allow to cool at room temperature. Once cooled unwrap the foil and gently squeeze the now-soft cloves out of their skins.

That’s it, you’re done. Spread it on bread with a bit of sea salt, use it in sauces… whatever you want (just maybe not ice cream). If you have any roasted cloves left over simply put them in an airtight container and cover them in oil. They will keep in the fridge for up to one week.
