Herb Roasted Garlic

Submitted by: CHEF_MEG
Herb Roasted Garlic

Introduction

Garlic is good for more than keeping away vampires. It's also quite good for you and full of flavor. Roasting garlic mellows its flavor and gives it a creamy texture.

Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    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

Tips

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!


Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Slice the tops off two heads of garlic, exposing the tips of the cloves. Place each bulb on a square of aluminum foil. Use a butter knife to gently loosen the cloves within the head, being careful not to completely separate them.
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.

    Love it! In our house, we believe you can never have too much garlic. I used the roasted cloves as the base to saute peppers and onions, without adding more oil (sprayed the skillet with nonstick) - YUM! - 3/1/11

    A staple at this house, although I've not used any herbs, just olive oil on the garlic heads. I try to put a couple in every time I have the oven on; since it's usually a lower temp, I cook for about 45 min. Rave reviews every time! - 10/16/12

    I have made these, not with the herbs though. Every single time I've had them people comment and love them. To the point I can't make them anymore because they now make them!
    They are especially nice in the fall they have that "harvest" look. Pretty on a plate with some crackers! - 10/16/12

    Yum! I am going to try it in my stew recipe. (Makes me remember when I was a new cook and I thought a "clove" of garlic was the whole bulb. Th house smelled great for a long time!) - 10/16/11

  • Sounds delish. One of my favorite dish growing up was baked chicken with 40 cloves of garlic or more. The garlic cloves would roast in their skins, flavoring the chicken and softening to be pressed onto to a fresh baguette slice for instant garlic bread. - 10/25/12
