How to Roast Garlic

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.

Roasted Garlic


  • 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)
  • Salt


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Cut off the top of the garlic bulbs, exposing the cloves inside.
  3. Place the bulbs on a large piece of foil.  Drizzle olive oil onto each bulb.
  4. Sprinkle with salt.
  5. Wrap foil tightly around bulbs, creating a package.
  6. Roast in the oven for 40-45 minutes.
  7. Remove and let garlic bulbs cool.
  8. Squeeze cloves into a small bowl.
