Recipe Ingredients

  • Enough garlic cloves to cover the bottom of a pan
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Assembly

Find a roasting pan, and optionally cover it with tinfoil. Fill the pan with peeled garlic cloves. Sprinkle olive oil and add salt and pepper and stir, so the garlics are glistening. This is not an olive oil bath, so be gentle. It should look like this picture:

Cover the pan, and place in a pre-heated oven at 375 F for about an hour, or until they are golden brown like below, and when poked with a fork they are soft all the way through (no resistance).

Store the garlics in an airtight container after they cool. The cloves are now soft and mushy and can be turned into paste and smeared on sandwiches, or used as toppings as-is. They don’t taste very strong, so don’t be shy about using them on almost anything that needs a little ‘umph’.

  1. Hi ShyGuy,
    Thanks for reading our blog. It’s a labor of love..more love than labor:-) We’ve kept the roasted garlic for as long as 3 weeks. We generally make the equivalent of about 5-6 heads of garlic. Yes, that’s a lot of garlic to go through.. but a little here, a little there and before you know it we’re roasting another batch.

  2. Not at all… Wendie is from Jamaica and I’m from Denmark… We currently live in San Diego, so our available food choices are of course impacted by what we can get here in the grocery stores and on the farmer’s market.

    Cheers
    – Anders
