Fancy Roasted Garlic Is Easy and Cheap!



You may recall in a previous post on Carnitas (link), I wrote that garlic was sold in packs of 5 whole "knobs" for $1.49 where I went. I only used 5 or 6 cloves or 1/2 of a knob for the Carnitas recipe, so I had a lot of garlic leftover! Fortunately, I love garlic!

One of my favorite things is roasted garlic. I like them so much; I will eat a clove of roasted garlic on its own. It tastes great with a toasted fresh baguette or bread/crackers. You can add them to other recipes like pasta.


Roasted garlic seems fancy, but it is cheap (1 whole "knob" is ~$0.30).


It's also easy to make; it only takes 2 ingredients (garlic and oil) and you just put it in the oven. I used one of my little ramekins that I had bought for the crème brûlée recipe; see ramekins are just a bowl that is also safe in the oven. I learned how to make roasted garlic from a different recipe than the link below, but I basically followed this recipe, except for my oven was at 425 degrees (they did 400 degrees.) This link is nice because they have pictures of each step.

Steps/Instructions:

1.) Preheat oven to 425 degrees (or 400 degrees).


2.) Cut the top off (~5-7mm) of the entire garlic knob.


2.) Rub oil (vegetable oil / olive oil) onto the exposed garlic cloves.


3.) Put the garlic knob in a ramekin or oven-safe pan and cover with foil.


4.) Bake at 425 degrees for ~30 minutes covered with foil; take off foil and bake uncovered for ~10 min.

- You may need to adjust bake times. You want to bake them until they are soft.


That's it! Give it a try! We are good at this!
