Learn how to make roasted garlic easily in your oven so you can kick your recipes up a notch with creamy umami flavor.
1headgarlic, see notes
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a piece of aluminum foil with parchment paper.
Remove the papery skin from the head of garlic, making sure to keep the cloves intact. Cut ¼ inch off the top of each head of garlic so that all of the cloves are exposed.
1 head garlic
Place the head of garlic into the parchment paper and drizzle the top with oil. Wrap the aluminum foil package up tightly and place it into a baking dish.
½ teaspoon olive oil
Roast the garlic for 45-70 minutes, or until it is soft and turns golden.
Let the garlic cool before squeezing the cloves out of the skins.
This recipe scales very well. It works best if there are no more than 3 heads of garlic per package. If you're making lots, simply put the heads of garlic into a small baking dish and cover the top of the dish with foil.
