Learn how to roast garlic! It will add rich, nutty flavor to mashed potatoes, soups, and more. Find specific serving suggestions in the post above.
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Trim the top ¼ inch off the top of the garlic bulb.
Place the garlic cut-side up on a piece of foil, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt. Tip: I like to use a small baking dish or ramekin to help the garlic sit cut-side up.
Wrap the garlic in the foil and roast for 40 to 60 minutes or until the cloves are deeply golden brown and tender.
Use in any recipe (like mashed potatoes or cauliflower mashed potatoes) that calls for roasted garlic. It also freezes well.
