How To Roast Garlic

If you’ve never tried roasted garlic, you’re in for a treat!

While raw garlic can quickly become overwhelming, roasted garlic has a sweeter, more mild, and slightly caramelized flavor.

Using roasted garlic is a simple trick for adding more flavor (and less garlic breath) to your kitchen!

How To Roast Garlic


  • 1 large head garlic
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


Slice the very top of the head of garlic off and drizzle with oil and a little salt. Wrap loosely in foil and set directly on the oven rack.

Roast 45 minutes – 1 hour or until fragrant, golden brown on top, and tender when squeezed. Remove from oven, unwrap, and let cool 10 minutes.
