How to Roast Garlic
Roasting your garlic is a simple and easy way to amplify the delicious flavors of this kitchen staple.
Servings: 10 (2 cloves per person)
Preheat oven or airfryer to 400°F
Peel off the excess papery layers around the whole head of garlic, being sure to leave 1-2 layers intact.
Slice off ¼ inch off the top of the garlic to expose the cloves.
Place the garlic onto a sheet of foil paper and drizzle 1tbsp of oil over the exposed and cut cloves.
Wrap the foil around the head and pinch the top to seal it.
Place your wrapped garlic head into the basket of your airfryer or onto a baking tray and roast for 30-40 minutes until the grains of garlic have caramelized, are cooked through, and are aromatic.
To store, place the whole head or the cloves (still in their outer skins) into an airtight container or Ziploc bag and store in the fridge for up to 4 days or peel each grain and place into a container and add enough oil to fully cover the grains. Store in the fridge for up to a week.
- To remove the roasted garlic from the skin, simply break off each grain and gently squeeze the uncut end and the clove should slide right out of the skin.
- Another way you can try, particularly if you're roasting more than one head in the oven, is to the place the head of garlic into a muffin tin, drizzle the oil over it and then using a small piece of foil cover the top and tuck the excess ends down around the sides of the garlic.
