When garlic is roasted, its sharp flavor is transformed into a richer, mellower version of its former self. The firm, spicy cloves caramelize and soften, creating a spreadable concoction like no other. Freshly roasted garlic makes a delicious spread for crusty bread or use it to add kick to sauces, mashed potatoes or pretty much anything else you want to taste great.
Preheat your oven to 350°F.
Slice off the top ¾-inch of a head of garlic. Place it on a piece of foil and drizzle it with about a tablespoon of olive oil.
Wrap it tightly and pop the package into your oven until it’s soft, about 45 minutes to an hour. Take it out of the oven and let it sit until it’s cool enough to handle.
You’ll be able to squeeze the creamy, garlicky goodness right out of the papery skins to use as you please.
