  • Great timing, Sparkpeople!I've been thinking about roasted garlic for days! - 4/14/16

  • I wrap several bulbs with aluminum foil and drizzle on the olive oil, let it spill over. When the garlic cooks the oil will turn into garlic infused oil so don't toss it. The garlic oil is delicious to use when making a stir fry. It goes rancid quickly so refrigerate and use it within 5 days. - 4/11/16

  • I roast garlic in a small, lidded Pyrex baking dish, fitting in as many heads -tops cut off- as possible. Add good olive oil by the tablespoon, keeping count. garlic infused oil left over is fabulous long after garlic has been used up - total the calories and divvy it up. The oil freezes well. - 3/7/13

    To roast without oil, just roast dry, it is still very good. - 3/7/13

  • roasted garlic is so less pungent than eating regular. You can cook 4-10 of them in the same pan. It's great to spread on a pizza shell and make a white pizza, low fat cheese, chicken, etc - 3/20/10

  • I absolutely love garlic but never thought about roasting them on their own great tip thanks - 3/20/10

  • Any idea what changes if you try to cook 4-6 cloves at once?
