Whole Roasted Garlic

I love garlic. If it was up to me, I would rub this all over myself but unfortunately we have a tough and picky society…  Not everyone loves garlic…

Whole roasted garlic is an amazing choice of “weapon” to make any dish aromatic and tasteful. You could rub this over some fresh toast french bread, which are served in some french restaurants as an appetizer. It could go into your bowl of white rice along with some McLovin’ Butta. Or the classic garlic butter on your bread. It’s seriously one of the best seasoning.

1 whole garlic
olive oil
salt + pepper (optional)
aluminum foil to wrap the garlic

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Clean the garlic by rubbing some of the outside skin off

On a cutting board, lay the garlic sideways and cut off the tip of the garlic

Place on foil, drizzle about 1-2 tsp. of olive oil, salt + pepper the garlic

Wrap it up and put in the oven to roast for about 25 min or until the garlic is soft and squeezable

Take it out and let it cool. Squeeze the garlic out of the shells – if it’s cooked right, the cloves would come out very easily

Smash the garlic into a paste and serve it however you like…
