How to Easily Roast Garlic in the Oven

Roasting garlic is a simple way to add lots of flavor to a dish. It is sweet, creamy and spreadable once roasted to perfection. Making your own roasted garlic is as easy as preheating the oven to four hundred degrees, placing parchment paper on a roasting pan, cutting the top off of the entire garlic bulb, drizzling olive oil on top then seasoning with salt and pepper. You may add a bed of thyme to lay under the bulb to add desired fragrance and flavor.

Key Takeaways:

  • Once you roast garlic, it becomes creamy and spreadable which you can then use in mashed potatoes and on bread.
  • Adding thyme to the garlic infuses the garlic with more flavor. That flavor adds another dimension to the flavor of the garlic.
  • You want to make sure you roast the garlic at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes. You know the garlic is done when it becomes soft and is a caramelized brown.
