How to Roast Garlic

How to Roast Garlic

Garlic is very nutritious and should be eaten every day (if you are married, if you are still dating take it easy on the garlic). Fresh garlic in olive oil is the healthiest, but if you need it roasted, here is the recipe.

PREHEAT oven to 275 degrees. You can roast it in the microwave, but I do not recommend it, the flavor will not be as intense. For a microwave, place the garlic in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and cook for 10-20 minutes.

PREPARE GARLIC - Cut 1/4" off the top of the garlic bulb. Place the garlic in a baking (oven safe) dish. Pour olive oil generously over the bulb.

BAKE the garlic for 1 1/4 hour or until the cloves are soft. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Squeeze each clove to release the garlic or serve it whole for your guests to squeeze out.

Excellent served with bread and gorgonzola cheese.

After you bake it once you will know how to easily roast garlic everytime without using the recipe again because it is so easy.
