Roasted garlic

    25 min

    I always have roasted garlic on hand - it is great on its own with some crusty bread, and also delicious in everyday recipes like soups, stews, houmous and tzatziki.

    • 1 large head garlic
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Method 1: Preheat oven to 120 C / Gas mark 1/2. Slice the very top off of the garlic bulb. Place in a small baking dish or ramekin and drizzle with olive oil. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, until outside is lightly browned and garlic cloves are soft. When cool enough to touch, squeeze each clove to extract softened garlic.

    Something else. this was delicious! We spread it on toasted bread and on pizza dough before making pizza. One suggestion: The time amount is WAY off. It needs about 45 minutes in the oven to get a soft clove and mild, sweet flavour.  -  15 Sep 2008


    Who knew this was so easy?? I used my roasted garlic in Mashed Potatoes instead of raw garlic - to die for!! You could definitely get away with a lot less oil! Really terrific to know how to do this!  -  15 Sep 2008


    i just felt like the temperature wasn't high enough. after 20 minutes, the garlic didn't look cooked at all. i let it cook about 20 more minutes, and it still wasn't very roasted. i ate it anyway b/c i was tired of waiting. but next time, i think i'll try a much higher temperature.  -  15 Sep 2008
