Roasted Garlic

    25 mins

    I always have roasted garlic on hand - it is great on its own with some crusty bread, and a delicious addition to soups and sauces.

    • 1 large head garlic
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil

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

    1. Preheat oven to 120 degrees C. Peel off the outside layers of the garlic head, leaving skins on the individual cloves and base intact. Slice 3 to 5mm off the top of the garlic head, exposing the flesh.
    2. Place head in a small baking dish or ramekin and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 20 minutes, until the outside is lightly browned and garlic cloves are soft. When cool enough to touch, squeeze each clove to extract garlic.

    Excellent ideas, Garlic is sooo good when eroasted. I use the microwave, a glass measuring cup a handful of peeled Garlic cloves, pick off the woody part , cover with small microwave safe dish. 1-2 min on high power. Olive oil is good also with this or just plain. Stick with tooth pick and enjoy. On the grill. Put peeled Garlic cloves into a small foil baking pan, drizzle with your favorite oil, sprinkle some Italian seasoning (salt free). Wrap in foil, set on grill near fire. Roast 5-10min. When adding meat to grill open foil and move to back of grill, garlic wil have a smokey flavor. Spread onto bread, or just pile ontop a fershly grilled steak, slab of fish, pork, chicken.  -  19 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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 flavor.  -  28 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I thought it turned out great, after I cooked it twice as long. I took a few and mashed it with butter, pepper, and garlic salt and added a little to popcorn. It was actually verrryy good. Also, I know an easy way to get the garlic stench off your hands: rinse your hands under cool water while rubbing a metal utensil (butter knife or spoon). Sounds silly, but I swear it works!  -  07 Oct 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
