Oven Roasted Garlic


This is a very basic utility recipe and most people know it by heart. If for some reason you are new to roasting garlic, you should find this interesting. I make it all the time!


  • 1 whole garlic bulb
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  •  piece non-stick aluminum foil

Yes, I use the foil since it needs to be tented anyway and why dirty another pan when you don’t need to?

Easy ingredients: Garlic, oil, and foil.


Step 1

Preheat oven to 375F.

Step 2

Cut off just enough of the top of the garlic bulb so that you can see the tips of each clove.

Step 3

Place on a piece of foil and drizzle with oil.

Step 4

Tent the foil up around it and toss in the oven.

Step 5

Go back to the top you cut off and rescue any pieces of garlic worth saving for other uses.

Step 6

Bake for 45 minutes, then cool.

Step 7

Pick off excess skins and squeeze the roasted cloves out with your fingers into a small bowl.
