Roasting Garlic

Roasted garlic is such a delicious complex flavor, it compliments so many dishes. I love to use it in salsa, on meat, spread on bread, in dips, on vegetables, in soups and stews, in mashed potatoes... the list is endless. Here is a simple method to roast garlic for your recipes.

Roasted Garlic

Heads of garlic
olive oil

Cut the top off of each head of garlic. Place heads, cut side up, in a small ungreased baking pan. Drizzle with olive oil. Bake at 350 degrees until garlic is very soft. Cool. Squeeze garlic from each clove. If desired, puree in a mini food processor. Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator in a sealed container.
