This is a simple ingredient or side dish for a lot of meals, so I thought I’d include a quick “recipe” on the blog. You can buy the pre-roasted garlic minced up in the little jars at the grocery store, but homemade roasted garlic is SO much better. And it’s really very easy.
Garlic heads (I roasted three here)
Extra virgin olive oil
Fresh black pepper
1) Chop off the tops of the garlic heads to expose the cloves.
2) Drizzle the bottom of a pie dish or a small baking dish with a couple tablespoons of olive oil.
3) Add the garlic heads, chopped side up, to the dish. Drizzle them with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
4) Bake for 45 minutes on 375, covered in foil.
