How to Roast Garlic in 5 Easy Steps

Roasted garlic is tasty on its own as an appetizer or a great way to add flavor to soups, stews, potatoes and gravy. It is a great substitute for salt, perfect for those on a low-sodium diet and best of all – it is cheap and so so easy. Here is our 5 step guide.

Required: garlic in whole bulb form, olive oil, sharp knife, aluminum foil.

Step 1: Slice the top of the garlic bulb(s) with a sharp knife.

Step 2: Soak garlic bulb(s) face down in olive oil for 5 minutes.

Step 3: Tear a sheet of aluminum foil large enough to make a pouch around the bulb(s) and place garlic face up on the foil.

Step 4: Form a pouch with the foil leaving ample room around the garlic, press foil edges together to form a tight seal.

Step 5: Place the foil pouch onto a baking sheet and roast at 450 degrees F or on broil for 40 – 50 minutes.

After roasting, make sure to let the garlic cool before handling.
