Roasting Garlic

Hey everyone,

So, I'm going to let you in on one of my favorite and easiest foods to make.  When I say easy, I mean 2-3 steps easy, not 30 minutes of prep and 30 minutes of cooking. <Homie don't play that.  G and I mostly eat roasted garlic plain with bread, but if you want to get fancy, you can add it to whatever recipe you're making.

First of all, let me explain that George and I are garlic fiends.  The more garlic, the better.  (Besides being insanely delicious, garlic is also supposed to be a natural antibiotic.) I try to sneak it into whatever dish I'm making for dinner that night.  If we're having a salad or a veggie heavy dinner, I'll make roasted garlic with crusty bread as a side.


So here is the quick and easy way to roast garlic:
(Please excuse the crappy iphone pics)


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • First, you'll need to cut the tops off of the garlic.  You want to expose as many of the cloves as possible.  I usually cut 1/3 of the way down.  
  • Once you have the tops cut off, place them on some aluminum foil on a cookie sheet.





Nice blurry pic, Em :(





  • Drizzle the cloves with olive oil.  Add some salt and pepper.






  • Next, you will need to build a little tent out of the foil.  I just kind of gather it up towards the top. It does not need to be 100% sealed.



  • Now, you just throw it in the oven for 45 minutes.  After that, take it out, drizzle with a bit more olive oil and put it back in for another 15.

I serve it with toasted french bread and a plate of olive oil with salt and pepper.



What is your favorite way to use garlic?
