How to Roast Garlic

Most of us recognize that garlic is great in all shapes and forms.  Today I want to give you another shape/form - Roasted Garlic.  Garlic that has been roasted off in a low (under 300 degree) oven for about 45 minutes changes its taste and texture dramatically.

The firm cloves take on a soft, almost buttery texture and a golden brown color.  But that's not all.  The flavor becomes much more mild and sweet, and while it retains that garlic taste, it mellows enough to eat even straight.  I use roasted garlic straight on just bread, and in a number of recipes as an ingredient.  In this quick cooking video, as well as in the write up below, I show you how to cook it.

To Make Roasted Garlic

  • Cut a full garlic bulb in half so you have the top and bottom as two pieces
  • Place the two halves on aluminum foil and drizzle a good amount of olive oil over the top
  • Season with salt and pepper
  • Wrap up the foil to fully enclose the garlic and put in a 250 – 300 degree oven for about 45 minutes
  • Check the garlic at 45 minutes, you’re looking for a soft texture, and a golden brown color.  If it’s not there, let it cook for longer.
  • Take the garlic out of the oven and let it cool.  If you squeeze the cloves the soft garlic will easily come out, and use can use as a spread or an ingredient

Enjoy!!
