Ingredients

1 head garlic 
1 teaspoon vegetable oil (try olive) 
⅛ teaspoon salt  
¼ teaspoon pepper 

Directions

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. 
  3. Rinse garlic head under cool running water and dry. Without breaking the head apart, remove as much of the papery outside layers as you can. 
  4. Using a sharp knife, cut off the pointed top of the garlic head so you can see a bit of all the cloves. Place garlic on a piece of foil or in a lightly greased baking dish. Lightly drizzle the cut side with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. 
  5. Close the foil around the garlic or cover the baking dish with foil, a lid or a flat baking sheet.
  6. Roast in the oven until garlic is soft and golden brown, about 40 minutes. 
  7. Set garlic aside to cool until safe to handle. Open foil or baking dish and squeeze the garlic from the cloves into a container. Use in recipes.
  8. Refrigerate or freeze leftovers within 2 hours.

Notes

  • Spread on toasted bread, mix into mashed potatoes or soup, or toss with pasta and vegetables.
  • Add to dips, spreads and salad dressings such as hummus, guacamole or vinaigrette.
  • Roast more than one head and freeze recipe-sized amounts in labeled airtight containers.
