Technique: Roasting Peeled Garlic

Pin it button big

Today is National Garlic Day and we can't let it go by without another garlic tip! We've already talked about our unabashed love of pre-peeled garlic. We realized recently that we could roast these jumbo peeled cloves just like a regular papered head, and we've found this to be a great and easy way to use up extra garlic.

After the garlic is roasted, we like to mash it with the oil to mix into fillings, or leave the cloves whole to be rubbed on toasts or bread with soft cheese.

To roast peeled garlic cloves: Heat oven to 375ºF. Line a pie pan or baking dish with foil. Put in a handful of garlic cloves in the center then drizzle olive oil on top and sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Fold up the foil packet and seal tightly. Bake for about 45-60 minutes or until soft.
