Roasted Garlic

Roasted garlic is soft and caramelized with a gentler flavor that is almost sweet. Perfect for spreading on bread, mashing into a salad dressing, or for adding extra flavor to homemade tortillas.


  • 1 head of garlic
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil


Preheat oven to 375⁰F.

Cut off the stem of one bulb of garlic to expose cloves; place in center of a piece of foil. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over garlic, then loosely fold foil to enclose.

Roast garlic in oven until soft when pierced, 45-55 minutes; open packet and allow to cool.

Pop cloves out of their skins by squeezing the bulb from the base.
