Roasted Garlic March 15, 2012

Jamie says: Ever had roasted garlic before? It’s super easy and tastes quite amazing… nothing like raw or cooked garlic in any of its forms, e.g. sliced, minced, pressed, etc. (Although I do love garlic in every way it’s prepared.)

Here’s a step by step pictorial guide of how I made Roasted Garlic.

I sliced a thick piece off the top- see how it cut into the garlic? (It looks like a cell in there!)

After slicing the top off the garlic, pour on that extra virgin olive oil…

Here comes the good stuff- extra virgin olive oil!

I then wrapped it up…and tossed it (actually, gently placed it) in the oven.

Pull the corners together and pinch to make a little Hershey's Kiss-like shape.

I waited a bit (an hour) and carefully took it out of the oven. And there I had it- Roasted Garlic! It’s mild and smooth. Perfect for bread.

The final product

Roasted Garlic


  • 1 head garlic
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Cut about 1″ off top of garlic- slicing through the tops of the garlic cloves. Save the whole top piece.
  2. Place garlic cut side up on aluminum foil. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil in the cut piece. Place garlic top piece back on.
  3. Pull corners of aluminum foil to the center and pinch the aluminum together to create a Hershey’s Kiss-like shape.
  4. Place in oven and cook for about 1 hour or until garlic is soft. Allow to cool slightly. Squeeze garlic cloves out.
  5. Enjoy on bread, meat, or in a soup!

Serves: 2-4 (as a condiment)
