    • 1 large head garlic
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil

    Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Preheat oven to 120 degrees C. Peel off the outside layers of the garlic head, leaving skins on the individual cloves and base intact. Slice 5mm off the top of the garlic head, exposing the flesh.
    2. Place head in a small baking dish or ramekin and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 20 minutes, until the outside is lightly browned and garlic cloves are soft. When cool enough to touch, squeeze each clove to extract garlic.

    Something else. this was delicious! We spread it on toasted bread and on pizza dough before making pizza. One suggestion: The time amount is WAY off. It needs about 45 minutes in the oven to get a soft clove and mild, sweet flavour.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Roasted Garlic is one of my favourite spreads for crackers! Roasting mellows the flavour beautifully. Try it--you'll like it!  -  29 Sep 2008


    i just felt like the temperature wasn't high enough. after 20 minutes, the garlic didn't look cooked at all. i let it cook about 20 more minutes, and it still wasn't very roasted. i ate it anyway b/c i was tired of waiting. but next time, i think i'll try a much higher temperature.  -  29 Sep 2008
