How To: Roast Garlic

Sharing is caring!

Roasted garlic is easy to make and adds a great depth of flavor to so many dishes.

1.) Heat the oven to 375 degrees.

2.) Place a garlic bulb on its side on a cutting board and using a sharp knife, cut the top off the bulb far enough to expose the tops of the cloves inside.

3.) Stack 2 large squares of aluminum foil together. Do this for each bulb of garlic you’re going to roast.

4.) Place the garlic bulbs – tops up – on to the squares of aluminum foil.

5.) Pour 1 Tbsp of olive oil over each bulb of garlic.

6.) Loosely wrap each bulb in the aluminum foil, being careful not to wrap too tightly or pierce the foil.

7.) Place foil balls of garlic on a rimmed baking and bake for 25-30 mins or until cloves are soft.

8.) Remove garlic from oven and allow to cool.

9.) Remove cloves from their skins, using a paring knife where needed to open the skins.

10.) Place roasted garlic cloves into a small glass jar.

11.) Once all cloves are in the jar, fill jar with enough olive oil to cover all of the cloves.

12.) Store tightly covered in a cool, dry place.
