Roasting garlic is simple to do, is a great way to make dishes you already know better, and is an easy way to elevate your cooking. The nice thing about roasting garlic is all it takes to work into your cooking routine is remembering to throw a bulb or two into the oven every few weeks. You can even do it when you're roasting something else. The roasting method we use came out of some testing we did to see if we could find the best way to roast garlic. You can read what we found out at Three Recipes: The Best Way to Roast Garlic.
Start by removing any loose paper on the outside of the garlic, then use a sharp knife to remove the top of the garlic, so the cloves are exposed. Drizzle a little bit of good olive oil across the top, making sure all the cloves have some oil on them.
Wrap the garlic up in a piece of foil, put it in a small baking dish, and set everything in a 400℉ oven for 40 to 45 minutes. To use just remove a clove and cook away.
