Roasted garlic is one of the easiest condiments (condiment? favor enhancer? whatever…) you can make. It is so buttery and delicious and garlicy. And I’m not talking garlicy in a funky way, but garlicy in an I-need-to-put-this-on-everything way. Spread it on bread, mix it into mashed potatoes, add it to pasta sauce, use it on chicken, mix it into soups,
eat it with a spoon…
You get the point.
- Garlic bulbs (as many as you want. I roasted 6 bulbs which yielded approx. 1 cup of roasted garlic)
- Olive Oil (1-2 tbsp for each bulb)
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
- Cut off the top of the garlic bulbs, exposing the cloves inside.
- Place the bulbs on a large piece of foil. Drizzle olive oil onto each bulb.
- Sprinkle with salt.
- Wrap foil tightly around bulbs, creating a package.
- Roast in the oven for 40-45 minutes.
- Remove and let garlic bulbs cool.
- Squeeze cloves into a small bowl.
