Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice off the pointed top of the garlic bulb, down about a ½ inch, exposing the cloves. Put the garlic head in a small ovenproof dish. Pour olive oil over the top of each bulb and let it sink in between the cloves. Cover and bake 45 minutes – 1 hour or until cloves are browned at the exposed end and soft throughout. Allow garlic to cool and squeeze out cloves to use.
- Roasted garlic
- Salt and pepper to taste
Bring butter to room temperature. Squeeze out roasted garlic and mash well with fork. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Use in place of butter for a delicious, healthy boost.
