How to Roast Garlic

Course Appetizer, vegetarian


  • Garlic
  • Olive Oil
  • Cooking spray
  • Salt
  • Tin Foil


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 325. Prep the garlic by removing the lose skins and then slicing the top off.
  2. Then pour olive oil into each head to fill it up, and salt liberally. Cut a large piece of tin foil and spray the inside of the foil with cooking spray to be sure the garlic will not stick.
  3. Next tightly and carefully seal up the garlic in the foil. Then place in the oven, I use my toaster oven to roast garlic most of the time so I don’t have to heat up the whole house with the big oven.
  4. Roast for 1-1.5 hours checking to be sure the garlic is slowly caramelizing and softening. You can store unused garlic in the fridge for a week at least.
