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.

    Lesson from long ago: Do not try to speed the process and roast garlic in the microwave. Ever. - 10/16/12

    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
