How to Roast Garlic

Printer Friendly Version »

Roasting sweetens and softens the strong punch of garlic. Roasted cloves can be used alone as a spread or served along with warmed brie for a fabulous topping for crusty bread. Add the soft cloves to potatoes while mashing or toss with pasta, freshly grated Parmesan, and some of your favorite chopped fresh herbs for a simple, delicious side dish. A great flavor to experiment with!

Ingredients

Garlic

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400F.

Peel away the loose outer layers of skin from several heads of garlic.
With a sharp knife, cut about 1/4 to 1/2 inch off the top of the cloves, keeping the heads intact.

Place the heads in a baking dish and brush or drizzle the tops with olive oil.

Cover with foil and bake at 400F for 30 or 35 minutes or until the cloves feel soft.

When cool enough to handle, the cloves should be easy to squeeze or pull out of the skin.
