Roasted Garlic


  • garlic heads
  • olive oil
  • herbs (I like to use thyme)
  • salt + pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  • Cut off the top of the head of garlic, so a few cloves are showing. Place the garlic on a sheet of aluminum foil (large enough to wrap around the garlic in a little pouch).
  • Tuck the herbs around. Drizzle with a touch of olive oil. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper. Form a pouch around the garlic and herbs
  • Pour 1-2 T. of water around the head of garlic (this will provide a bit of steam during the cooking process)
  • Place on a cooking sheet and roast for an hour.
  • Remove pouches from oven and let cool
