Recipe

When a head of garlic is roasted this way, the cloves lose their sharpness and become soft, subtle, and creamy. They add an aromatic kick to all sorts of foods and give flavor and dimension to mashed or sautéed potatoes and any sautéed vegetables. And try Oven-Roasted Garlic spread on crusty French bread.

Store the garlic in the refrigerator, either well wrapped in plastic or in a small bowl, covered with oil.

Yield:
Makes 2 heads

Ingredients

  • 2 heads garlic, unpeeled
  • 2 tablespoons pure olive oil

Use in:

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Cut off the top third of each garlic head to expose the cloves. Sprinkle each garlic head with 1 tablespoon olive oil and wrap in aluminum foil. Place on a baking sheet and roast until soft, about 40 minutes. Squeeze the garlic cloves out of their skins to serve.

Notes

Make-ahead note:

Oven-Roasted Garlic can be refrigerated up to 2 weeks.
