Gather the ingredients for whole roasted garlic

Whats in it?

6 Whole garlic bulbs

2 tablespoons olive oil

Salt to taste

Let’s Put it Together

 1. Preheat oven to 375 F.

2. Turn the whole garlic bulb on its side, and with a sharp knife, cut off the top third of the bulb. Be sure to cut the top (pointed end), and not the bottom (flat, root end).


3. Place each whole garlic on a piece of foil, about 8-inches square, with the cut-side up. Drizzle one teaspoon of olive oil over the cut surface, and sprinkle with salt.

4. Draw up the foil and wrap the garlic to seal (the bulbs will look like chocolate kisses when wrapped).
