2 heads garlic
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon thyme, dried
1/2 teaspoon sage, dried
1/4 teaspoon rosemary, dried and chopped
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
This is a staple in my house. I throw a couple of heads in the oven when I'm cooking other dishes, and I use it on bread, in soups and in stews. You'll love this recipe--it's low in fat and free of salt!

Combine all remaining ingredients and pour over both heads of garlic. Wrap up each foil packet, place on a sheet tray and roast for 30 minutes, or until cloves are lightly browned and soft.
Remove from oven to slightly cool. Squeeze each clove to remove it from the papery skin.
Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
Makes 6 servings, two teaspoons per serving.
