How to Roast Garlic

How to Roast Perfect Garlic

  • Author: Mila Furman


Did you know that there is a secret to restaurant dishes? Yes I mean other than butter. It’s roasted garlic. And the beauty is that it’s super easy to make.


  • 45 Garlic cloves
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350-degrees
  2. Take a few heads of garlic and cup off the bottoms with a serrated knife.
  3. The bottoms are where the garlic comes to a point. Take off some of the loose paper.
  4. Drizzle olive oil into the bottom a small pan. It can be a frying pan or an old pie pan. I chose to use my meatloaf pan.
  5. Place garlic bulbs with the exposed garlic cloves facing up. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  6. Cover pan with foil and place into the oven for 30-35 minutes or until a knife goes into the garlic smoothly.
  7. Once the garlic is roasted, let cool until you are able to handle with your hands.
  8. Now comes the fun part. Squeeze the garlic out by pushing from the top all the way out of the bottom.
  9. That’s it! Store it and use it!
  10. HINT: Don’t throw out the oil that the garlic roasted in. Save it for sauteeing and give food a light garlicy flavor.
