Other than being very flavourful, roasted garlic also has a handful of health benefits such as lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, lowers blood sugar and acts as antioxidant.

What you’ll need:

  • garlic
  • olive oil
  • knife
  • teaspoon
  • kitchen foil
  • cutting board
  • baking pan or muffin pan

Procedure:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400⁰F.
  2. Peel off the outer layer or paper-like skin of the garlic bulb but leave the skin on the cloves intact.
  3. Use the knife to cut ½ inch off the top of the cloves.
  4. Get the baking pan or muffin pan and place the garlic heads on it.
  5. Drizzle a few teaspoons of olive oil over every garlic head and make sure that each head is coated well. You may also use a brush instead.
  6. Cover the pan or each head with aluminium foil
  7. Bake for 30 minutes at 400⁰F. The garlic should be soft when it is done roasting.
  8. Let the garlic cool before touching it.
  9. Individual cloves should be easy to pop out using a fork when cooked properly.

Tips:

  • Roasted garlic can be eaten as is or mashed and used for bread, mixed with sour cream, used in pasta or sauces.
  • Others prefer to remove cloves individually before roasting but it takes more prep time.
