How to Make Roasted Garlic

Roasted garlic is one of my favorite ways to add an extra kick of flavor to food (think mashed potatoes, hummus, etc.) without adding extra calories. It’s SO easy to make and doesn’t require one of those little ceramic garlic roasters (although they are cute). Check out the step by step instructions below!

Servings 1 roasted garlic bulb


Food Items

  • 1 bulb garlic
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • sea salt (to taste)


  • aluminum foil (Two (2), approximately 12″x 12″ square sheets, layered. They do not have to be exact!)


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Cut off the top of the garlic cloves.
  • Place cloves on top of the two squares of aluminum foil in the middle.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and season with freshly ground sea salt.
  • Fold aluminum foil to create a small pouch and place in oven.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for about 1-2 hours.
  • Carefully remove the the roasted garlic cloves from the oven. Once cool, you can squeeze the uncut ends of the garlic cloves to "pop" the roasted garlic cloves from the outer casing.
