Roasted garlic is super easy to make, and you can use it in almost everything. Smash it on your avocado toast, add it to sandwiches, aiolis, ricotta….really anything will benefit from this humble, simply roasted garlic. From start to finish this should take you no more than 45 minutes to an hour tops.
Pre-heat your oven to 400 F. Simply cut off the top of the head of garlic exposing the garlic cloves (you can keep the top, we will add it to the foil bundle).
Place the whole head of garlic in tin foil, then drizzle the garlic with olive oil and a pinch of sea salt. (You can also add fresh, hard herbs, like rosemary, thyme, or oregano).
Now, close the foil around the garlic, pinch the top, creating a little bundle and place on a baking sheet.
Voila! After 45 minutes-1 hour, you will have spreadable, mashable, sweet, fragrant roasted garlic to add to whatever fills your heart with joy.
You could either squeeze the creamy, sweet roasted cloves out of the garlic head or pick each clove out with a small fork or toothpick.
