You’ll love or detest this recipe. I personally love the smell of roasting garlic. Which is a good thing since you have to roast it for around an hour.
The caramelized deliciousness goes great in mashed potatoes, smeared on toast or a fresh baked slice of French bread. It’s great on your favorite pasta dish or served with butter over fettuccine, the possibilities are endless.
Once you roast it put it in an air-tight container and keep it in the fridge or freeze it.
- 1 head of garlic
- Olive oil
Cut top off garlic head. Place in a sheet of foil and drizzle with 1 or 2 tbsp. of olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper. You can add any herbs and spices you like. Use your imagination or keep it simple.
Wrap foil loosely around garlic and place in a 350 ⁰ pre-heated oven. Roast for 45 – 60 minutes. Roasting time depends on how large and fresh your garlic head is.
Once tender and caramelized remove from oven. Cool for about 10 minutes then squeeze the pulp from the paper like casing of the individual cloves.
Store and use as needed.
