I always thought roast garlic was a fancy party trick that took the chef hours to make. I mean, cooking garlic into spreadable treat has got to be complicated. Well, I stand corrected. It’s pretty darn easy.


Whole garlic cloves

Olive oil


Preheat oven to 400 F.

Take your garlic cloves and chop off the tops, leaving the individual cloves exposed. Place on parchment paper and drizzle with olive oil. Really rub the oil into the nooks and crannies of the garlic. Place some chopped rosemary on top. Pop in the oven for 35-40 minutes. You’ll know it’s done when you poke it with a fork, and the garlic feels soft. Serve warm or keep in fridge covered in olive oil for another day. The olive oil will infuse, so be sure to keep that around as well!

    For a tasty treat, I like to take the roasted garlic gloves and pop them out of the shell into a bowl, mix with your favorite goat cheese and eat with bread or crackers. (warning: has been known to ruin dinner appetite).

  2. YUM! I feel like I forgot about this delicious treat. So simple too.

    This looks so delicious and sounds so easy! I think this calls for some flaky bread, cheese and wine. And the roasted garlic of course. Yum!

    That is delicious looking. I could just pop them in my mouth. I happen to have random garlic cloves around the house that will be receiving this treatment for Thanksgiving….if I don’t eat them directly.
