How to Roast Garlic


How to roast garlic to add to recipes or keep the vampires away and enjoy it on its own!


  • 12 whole heads of garlic
  • 12 tbsp olive oil
  • Pinch of salt and pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400 and place a large piece of aluminum foil on a baking sheet
  • Slice off the top of the garlic so the bulbs are exposed
  • Place each garlic head on the top of the aluminum foil and drizzle the olive oil over the top, rubbing the oil into the exposed area a bit
  • Sprinkle with pinch of salt and pepper
  • Wrap the foil tightly around the garlic and place into the oven for 40 minutes, or until tender
  • Remove the garlic from the oven, and allow to cool for 10 minutes
  • Use your thumb and forefinger to gently squeeze the base of the garlic to pop out the individual cloves
  • Use in your chosen recipe, or store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to one week


I’ve only ever roasted 2 whole cloves at a time, so you may want to increase the cook time by about 5-10 minutes if you’re roasting a large amount.
