Roasted Garlic


  • 3 heads garlic
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment or aluminum foil.
  • Cut the top quarter from the heads of garlic and place, cut side up, on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle each with oil and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Turn the garlic cut sides down, and roast until the cloves are soft and golden brown, about 1 hour. Remove from the oven and let sit until cool enough to handle. Squeeze each head of garlic, gently pressing with your fingers to expel the cloves into a bowl. Mash with a fork and blend thoroughly.
