How to roast garlic!
Roasting the garlic bulbs transforms the cloves into buttery sweet bits of love. Adds extra flavor in many different recipes.
- Cut the top part of the garlic bulb off.
- Place on a piece of aluminum foil and drizzle some olive oil over the top. I like to sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper.
- Wrap the garlic bulb up. Bake at 400 for about 40 minutes.
- Remove and let cool. Squeeze the garlic out of the skins. Place in a bowl or plate and smash or chop according to the recipe.
- You can store any unused roasted garlic cloves in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
