  • 1 head of garlic
  • extra virgin olive oil


  • Heat oven to 425°F.
  • Cut garlic- chop the top ¼ inch off the top of the head of garlic. You want to expose the top of each clove.
  • Wrap & drizzle- wrap each head of garlic with foil, leaving the top open. Drizzle with olive oil so that it covers the top of the head of garlic and pools slightly around it (1-2 teaspoons total).
  • Roast it up- Seal the foil up around the top of the garlic. Roast in the oven at 425°F for 45 or so minutes (start checking at 35 min). Your garlic is ready to come out when it is golden and soft throughout.
  • Cool + store- Cool the roasted garlic for 20 minutes, until it is safe to handle. Squeeze the head of garlic to pop the cloves out. Store in a jar for up to 2 weeks.



  • fridge- store in an air tight jar in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. You can drizzle with extra olive oil to keep it moist.
  • freezer- press the roasted garlic into ice cube trays and freeze until solid. Transfer to a silicone freezer bag or reusable container and freeze for up to 6 months.
