Roasted Garlic

Total: 50 minutes

This oil-free alternative showcases the natural flavor that rises from simply roasting garlic.



  1. With a sharp knife, cut across the top of the head of garlic, then put the top back on. Set garlic heads, cut-side up in a small baking dish just large enough to hold them.
  2. Cover the dish tightly with a lid or with parchment paper under heavy-duty aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes at 375°, or until each clove is soft to the touch and the skin resembles lightly browned parchment.
  3. To eat, scoop out the garlic purée from one of the cloves with the tip of a knife and spread on top of bread or save for use in a recipe.


  • Choose garlic heads that have large sized cloves for easier scooping after the garlic is baked.
  • Roasted garlic keeps well in the refrigerator in a sealed container for up to 2 weeks.
