Oven Roasted Garlic
Okay is there anything better than the smell (or taste) of roasted garlic? Especially when it is roasted, bathed in olive oil, butter (or ghee) and salt!!! I will tell you there is not. Spreading it on a warm baguette is probably one of the best ideas ever. Pair that with a glass of wine and some fresh parmesan cheese – I am in heaven. Just make it this weekend – and tell me how amazing it is!
What Do You Eat Oven Roasted Garlic With?
So many things! You can incorporate it in mashed potatoes, soups, dips, chili, etc.
Here are a few of my favorite ways to use oven roasted garlic:
- Vegan Roasted Garlic Alfredo Sauce
- Roasted Garlic Hummus
- Braised Lamb Shoulder + Mint Gremolata and Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
How Long Can You Keep Roasted Garlic?
You can keep it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
How to Make Oven Roasted Garlic
This process is so easy and will take so many recipes to the next level. Here we go –
1 – you will need to cut off the bottom of the head of garlic so the bottom rests flat, like in the picture below. Trying to cut the tops off of as many garlic cloves as possible.
2 – Take a sheet of foil or parchment paper, place garlic in the middle and top with a healthy amount of olive oil – try to let it sink down into the crevices
3 – sprinkle on a lot of salt
4 – then add a dollop of butter
5 – wrap it up! Here is the foil example….
6 – And the parchment paper. Use kitchen twine to tie it up.
Per my suggestion above…. pair with wine, fresh Parmesan cheese and a warm baguette.
