The garlic can be roasted in a small pan in a toaster oven. For garlic lovers, roasting is a must it makes the garlic sweeter, more buttery, and tastier.

Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Putting them in a small roasting pan, arrange the cloves in a single layer and spoon the Chili and Garlic Oil over. Roast, stirring occasionally, until the cloves are lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes. Watch the garlic as it browns-when it becomes too brown, it takes on a bitter taste.

Cool the garlic and transfer it to a container and refrigerate, covered, until needed.
