I love garlic. So much. Oh let me count the ways!
But when it comes to roasted garlic?
The love is on a whole other level!
It is SOOOO good!
Ya know, raw garlic is very potent.
It’s very powerful and the taste is quite sharp.
But now, when you go and roast it, it mellows out those sharp edges, but intensifies the richness of the flavor.
The result is garlic deliciousness to the extreme!
And making it is a breeze!
You simply remove the outer skins (just the outer ones), then use a knife to chop off the tops (as pictured).
Then put it in some tinfoil, pour over 1 tsp of olive oil, wrap it up and bake it for 35-40 minutes in the oven.
Your house will smell sooo good while this is cooking!
Once cooked it is the easiest thing to pop the garlic cloves out of their skins, and then you can easily mash with a fork if you need it mashed.
