Roasted Garlic

When I lived with Kiki and Colton last autumn, Kiki showed me how to roast garlic for our Roasted Garlic Veggie Foccacia Pizza. I forgot how easy it was to make.


  • bulb of garlic
  • olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Peel away the outer layers of the garlic bulb skin but leave the skins of the individual cloves intact. Using a knife, cut off the tips of the cloves.
  3. Place the garlic heads (cut side down) in a small dish filled with olive oil. Let the olive oil soak into the garlic bulbs for a few minutes. Then cover with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake at 400°F for 40-45 minutes, or until the cloves feel soft when pressed.
  5. Allow the garlic to cool enough so that you can touch it. Use your fingers to push the roasted garlic cloves out of their skins.
  6. Eat as is, if you’re daring. Otherwise use on pizza, in a bread recipe, in a pasta dish or anywhere else you would use regular garlic. (I roasted a bulb specifically for Roasted Garlic White Bean Hummus.)
