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.
