Roasted Garlic

Method

If you have any leftover garlic that you want to use up, this is a heavenly recipe for roasting multiple bulbs. Once roasted, you can freeze the garlic and defrost when required for use in dips, sauces, spreads – you name it!

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 160°C.
  2. Individually wrap each garlic bulb in foil.
  3. Place on a lightly oiled baking tray or casserole dish and roast in the oven for around an hour.
  4. Take out and leave the garlic bulbs to cool.
  5. Unwrap each foil package – you should find the bulbs are now soft and squidgy.
  6. Chop the tips off each clove and squeeze out the garlic flesh.
  7. Store in a container until required.
