Roasting garlic mellows the flavour of garlic and brings out a rich caramel taste. I roasted up some fresh garlic for my delicious Perfect Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes. An important tip when roasting garlic – do not burn the garlic as it becomes very bitter and unpleasant tasting. My cast iron frying pan is perfect to use for making roasted garlic.
How to make Roasted Garlic
roasted garlic adds great flavour to so many recipes such as dressings, veggies and sauces.
- 1 large bulb of garlic
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- pinch sea salt
Preheat oven to 350º F.
Slice top off garlic bulb. (do not peel outer layers)
Place in heavy baking dish. (I use my small cast iron frying pan)
Drizzle olive oil over top of garlic bulb.
Sprinkle with sea salt.
Bake 30 minutes or until top golden brown. (do not burn)
Squeeze bottom of the garlic bulb to release the roasted garlic cloves.
