Hey y’all! Another Monday and another How To Series, and today we’re working with one of my favorites, garlic. Garlic is one of the best things in my opinion to bump up the flavor in your food (maybe not your dating life though hehe) and when it’s roasted, mmm perfecto!
Again, another cooking ability I figured would be difficult but is just too easy not to make. What’s really cool is the little trick that was shown to me to make roasting garlic even easier; putting the wrapped garlic bulbs in muffin tins so they’ll be right side up-genius y’all.
I was thrilled to discover this after the first time I roasted garlic, where they all kept falling over on the tray frustrating me. So, whether you like to eat it plain, or want to throw it into some pasta (a personal fave) you can totally roast some garlic because it’s easy peasy.
Peel off all of the ‘paper’ on your garlic bulbs…
Cut the tops off…
drizzle Olive Oil with a dash of salt…
place aluminum foil on top & place in your muffin tins…
bake, bake, bake and enjoy!!!
- 2-4 Whole Garlic Bulbs.
- 1/4 Cup of Olive Oil (More or Less per Preference).
- Sea Salt or Himalayan Pink Salt to Taste.
- Muffin Tins.
- Aluminum Foil.
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
- Remove the paper off of the garlic bulbs, then cut the tops off of the bulbs.
- Liberally drizzle your bulbs with Olive Oil, cover the tops of the bulbs with aluminum foil and place in your muffin tins.
- Bake for 55-60 minutes or until tender.
- Please note, I've had cooking times vary a bit on roast garlic, sometimes it's been 30 minutes, sometimes 60, which I have heard has something to do with freshness, so just keep an eye on it.
- If you don't have a muffin tin, just completely wrap your bulbs in aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet.
