How To: Roast Garlic

3 Jun

Roasted garlic is a glorious way to flavor dips, veggies, potatoes, steaks and salad dressing or to just slather on French bread. There are so many delicious ways to enjoy it! As you can see, I have mentioned it many times around here but have never shared in an official manner how to make it. So here you go, a how to on roasted garlic. You’re welcome.

And I have an amazing recipe later in the week using it so make sure to watch out for it. You won’t be sorry.

First, cut off a bit of the top of the garlic to expose the cloves, drizzle with olive oil and season with kosher salt.

Roasted Garlic

1 clove garlic
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. kosher salt

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Slice off the top of the garlic just enough that all of the cloves are exposed. Place on a square of aluminum foil and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle salt. Close tightly and roast in oven for 45 minutes. Once cool, squeeze out all garlic cloves and any olive oil and smash.
