Roasting garlic is so simple and yields some really great flavor. You really can’t fake roasted garlic. Even if you only need a little bit, roast the whole head of garlic, and freeze and unused cloves. Then you have it ready whenever you need it.
I was so crazy busy getting ready for my party, that I completely forgot to take a picture of the garlic after it was roasted…oops! Next time though.
1 head of garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove as much of the garlic skin as possible, while trying to keep the head in tact.
2. Cut head about 1/4 of the way from the top, so most cloves are exposed.
3. Drizzle with olive oil, making sure all cloves get covered. Wrap garlic in foil and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until cloves feel soft to the touch.
4. Once garlic is cool enough to be handled, remove cloves from skins. Many will just pop right out with a little squeeze. You’ll have to pop open any cloves that you didn’t slice through.
