Roasted Garlic Recipe

Total Time:
1 hr
No specific quantities are needed for this recipe. Just roast as many heads as you'll use.


  • Garlic , whole heads
  • Olive Oil
  • Flakey Salt , such as kosher salt, Murray River salt, Maldon salt
  • fresh cracked Black Pepper
  • optional-fresh thyme leaves


  1. Preheat oven 400º F.
  2. Remove extra loose white skin around garlic heads. Place in a baking dish sized to fit all of your heads in a single layer, without too much extra space (small ramekins are great for just a head or two.) *optional - for a pretty presentation you can slice off the top of the head, exposing the individual garlic cloves
  3. Pour a generous amount of olive oil over each head. Sprinkle a generous amount of salt and black pepper. If using optional fresh thyme, sprinkle leaves over garlic heads.
  4. Cover with aluminum foil and place in oven. Roast for 45 minutes.
  5. Remove foil and drizzle a little more olive oil. Return to oven and roast for 15 minutes more.
  6. Remove from oven. Take garlic out of baking dishes and serve with baguette slices, crackers, etc., or use in whichever culinary dish you'd like. *Once oil has cooled in baking dishes, strain and save for future culinary uses. ;)
