I have a new love and it is roasted garlic. It is so easy to do and I think it adds a smoother garlic taste to the dish. Add the roasted cloves to any dish that calls for regular garlic cloves.
I see a lot of it in my future, so be prepared.
How to Roast Garlic:
Cut ¼ – ½ inch off the top of the garlic head and remove the outer papery layers. Leave the skin on the individual cloves on the garlic.
Place on a piece of foil large enough to wrap the entire head of garlic. Drizzle olive oil over the exposed cloves. Wrap head of garlic tightly with foil.
Roast at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
Once the garlic is cool enough, the cloves easily remove from their skins with a small fork or your fingers.
Smash with a fork or whiz in a small food processor. Slather the garlic over homemade artisan bread, or use it in recipes that call for garlic cloves. The cloves can be stored for a few days in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
