How to Roast Garlic – A Photo Guide

Posted on

I LOVE roasted garlic.  It’s sweeter and milder than fresh garlic, but still has that wonderful garlicky flavor.  Roasted garlic can be used in a wide variety of ways, including in pasta, mashed potatoes, dressings, butter, spreads, breads, and a variety of meat and fish dishes. (I’ll be using it tonight in a Roasted Garlic Aioli. Stay tuned.)

How to Roast Garlic

Start with a fresh head of garlic.

Cut off the top of the garlic, just enough to reveal the cloves.

Remove any loose peel, but leave the head intact. Place on a piece of foil.

Drizzle a very small amount of olive oil over the cut side.

Seal the garlic in the foil.

Roast in a 350 degrees oven for 50-60 minutes, until the garlic is tender.

Open the foil packet and allow garlic to cool for a few minutes.

When cool enough to handle, gently squeeze the roasted garlic from the skin.

Your house is going to smell so good!

Enjoy!
