2021 Food Box #10 - Roasted Garlic Recipe

Roasted Garlic Recipe


  • Fresh Garlic - 6 whole heads

  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil per head

  • Salt and Pepper to taste

  • A few fresh sprigs of rosemary or thyme - optional


  • Preheat oven to 400F.

  • Cut the tips off the heads, exposing the cloves inside, slicing off roughly 1/2 inch.

  • Place in a well-oiled skillet, baking sheet or cast iron pan.

  • Drizzle generously with olive oil.

  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper if you like, and tuck in some sprigs of rosemary or thyme. Both optional.

  • Cover tightly with foil.

  • Roast 35 minutes, check for tenderness, by inserting the tip of a knife into an inner clove. If tender, uncover and roast until golden and caramelized, 10-20 more minutes. If not tender, recover with foil and check again in 5-10 minutes.

  • Spread the roasted garlic on a toasty baguette for a quick appetizer or snack!

  • Or add to mashed potatoes, smashed potatoes or roasted potatoes!

  • Or add to soups and stews- particularly nice with pureed winter squash, cauliflower, mushroom …etc!

  • Or add to whipped butter, hummus, goat cheese or feta!


How to Store Fresh Garlic

  • Keep in a dry dark place if you are going to use in the next couple days. For long term storage, wrap in plastic wrap and a freezer bag, then store in the freezer!
