There’s almost nothing like the flavor of a perfectly roasted garlic clove. Unlike raw garlic’s sharp, stinky, pungent flavor, roasted garlic is deep, sweet, and nuanced. The caramelized cloves make a perfect appetizer when spread on toast or you can use them to build layers of flavor in soups and stews. Love garlic? Try these super-satisfying recipes.
How to Roast Garlic
Roasting garlic couldn’t be simpler. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and cut off the top of one (or more) heads of garlic. Peel off any papery outer layers and place the head on a sheet of aluminum foil. Drizzle the exposed cloves with olive oil, salt, and pepper and close the pouch.
