How to Roast Garlic

How to Roast Garlic

•    1 whole head of garlic
•    Olive oil
You will also need
•    Aluminum foil, small baking sheet

Cook Time: 45 Minutes
Servings: 1 head of roasted garlic cloves


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Peel the outer skin from the garlic head, leaving the cloves intact in their casings.
  2. Slice the top part of the garlic head off, leaving the cloves exposed.
  3. Put the garlic head onto a square of aluminum foil and drizzle with olive oil.
  4. Wrap the garlic up in the foil. Put it on a small baking sheet and place it in the hot oven for 45 minutes.
  5. Remove garlic from the oven and unfold carefully-- there will be hot steam inside. You may wish to let it cool for several minutes before unwrapping.
  6. Squeeze the cloves out from their casings. They will be soft, caramelized, and easy to spread on toast or crackers.
