- Garlic Heads
- Olive Oil
- Minced Herbs of Your Choice
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Peel the outer layers off of the garlic heads. Leave the cloves connected and in their wrappers. Cut off the first quarter to half an inch of the cloves. Place the heads in a muffin tin and coat them with olive oil. Cover each of the heads with aluminum foil. Bake the heads for thirty to thirty-five minutes, or until the cloves are soft. If you’re adding herbs to your garlic, add them to the top of the garlic about half way through roasting.
Let the roasted heads cool and then they are ready for eating straight or using in recipes! Try smearing the softened clove on bread. Mix it with cream cheese for a garlic spread. Add it to salad dressings. Mix it into an Alfredo sauce for pasta or chicken. Experiment, the possibilities are endless!
