Roasted Garlic

This can be spread on crusty bread or mixed in a bowl of fluffy mashed potatoes. Not only that your kitchen will smell divine.

  • 3-4 heads of garlic
  • 4-6 tsp oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Peel away the outer layers of the garlic bulb skin.
  3. Cut off 1/4 to a 1/2 inch of the top of cloves, exposing the individual cloves of garlic.
  4. Place the garlic heads in a baking pan and drizzle a couple teaspoons of olive oil over each head, using your fingers to make sure the garlic head is well coated.
  5. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the cloves feel soft when pressed.
  6. Allow to cool for a few minutes before squeezing garlic out of their skins.
Recipe Type: Appetiser


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Peel off the outer layers of the garlic head and slice about 1/2 inch off the top to expose all the little heads.

Coat the top with olive oil and place in a baking dish. Make sure the head is really well coated. Cover with foil

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes.  The garlic should be really soft and the pulp should squeeze right out of each clove.

Use the roasted garlic in mashed potatoes, pasta or my favorite spread directly on fresh bread.
