Tip of the Day: Roasting Garlic

For a great addition to a crusty loaf of bread for dinner tonight, cut the top off across the sprout end of a head of garlic. Drizzle olive oil on top, wrap in aluminum foil and roast in the oven at 375 degrees until soft. It takes about 45 minutes and makes for a delicious and healthy addition to dinner!

  1. Love me some roasted garlic. I sometimes roast elephant garlic (which I think isn’t really garlic or something) whole in the toaster oven and squish it out onto bread. Doesn’t have as much flavor as regular garlic but it’s still tasty.

    Lovely lunching with you!

    Hi garlic lovers,

    I love roasted garlic.

    When I eat fish (monkfish for instance) I also like garlic puree. The trick I use is to get rid of the acridity in the garlic is to infuse in different batches of simmering water.

    You’ll need peeled garlic (approx one head per person) and a saucepan.

    Boil the water in the saucepan with the garlic, let simmer for 5 minutes.

    Meanwhile, boil a kettle of water. When that is done, replace the water in the saucepan with the freshly boiled water.

    Repeat 5-6 times : the cloves of garlic are now tender and have lost all the acrimony, infused in the waters.

    Mash with a fork, whisk in some unsalted butter to give it a smooth, mayonnaise touch, and serve.

    What do you think?
