Roasted Garlic Recipe

There’s nothing quite like the smell of slowly roasting garlic…its powerful aroma and flavor is a wonderful addition to add to let’s see….ANYTHING! And as far as I know, garlic is what we call in the cooking world a part of the holy trinity of ingredients. See recipe below for how to roast a head of garlic in a piece of foil!

How to make magic:

  • 1 head of Garlic
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Olive oil (any type of oil works for this but try using a good cooking oil)
  • A piece of foil
  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Peel the outer skins on the head of Garlic but leave the cloves intact in their skins. Grab a towel, place it over the top of the head of garlic and lightly press down. Don’t press too hard you still want the head of garlic and cloves to all be intact but spread out a little.
  3. Take your foil set it down, put the head of garlic on the foil and season with salt, pepper, and oil.
  4. Now wrap up your little bundle of garlic and throw it in the oven….okay don’t throw it we aren’t playing hot potato, but just put it in the oven right on the rack like your baking a potato.
  5. Roast at 375 degrees farenheit for about 40-55min.
  6. Pull it out of the oven, and open your present of sweet caramelized roasted garlic! The smell alone will have you weak in the knees.
  7. So to get it out of the skins, wait for it to slightly cool to handle, and use the back of a knife, starting at one end and scraping towards the other end.
  8. You can now use this roasty garlic mush for any addition to sauces, marinades, soups, meats, vegetables, grains…..literally anything!
