Roasted Garlic

Home / Recipes / The Basics / Roasted Garlic

It is really, REALLY, easy to roast a head of garlic, especially when you’ve already got the oven going.  The soft, buttery and sweet cloves can be mixed into soups, pastas or potatoes, or just spread on a piece of fresh bread.

Roasting Garlic

Roasted Garlic
Ideally, the oven should be at 400F, but any hot oven will work, it just might take longer than 30 minutes. You can unwrap the foil to peek at the garlic occasionally.
  • Whole head of garlic
  • 1 Tbls olive oil
  • salt
  • tin foil
  1. Remove all the papery skins off the head of garlic
  2. cut about ½ inch off the top, exposing the tops of each clove
  3. Set in a square of tin foil and drizzle with olive oil and a pinch of salt
  4. Wrap the foil around the head, twisting the top to seal it
  5. Bake about 30 minutes.
  6. It is done when the cloves are a carmel color and soft like butter.
