Try using Roasted Garlic Purée as a condiment on anything you like. The process of roasting garlic is mostly hands-off, and the roasted garlic purée will keep in the refrigerator for up to one week, so it’s handy to have a stash available for spreading on sandwiches, stirring into soups, mixing into hamburgers, or using it any other way you can think of.

  • 6 Large Heads Of Garlic
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/3 Cup Olive Oil
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. With sharp knife, cut 1/4 inch off top of garlic heads (pointed end) so that the individual cloves are visible.
  3. Place garlic in small-size baking dish (cut side up) and sprinkle with kosher salt. Drizzle with olive oil. Make sure olive oil drips between cloves.
  4. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil and place in oven for 20 minutes. Remove foil and cook another 20 minutes. You will want garlic to be very soft and caramelized.
  5. Remove from oven and let cool. Squeeze soft roasted garlic cloves into small-size bowl.
  6. Mash garlic to form a paste. Add a bit of roasting oil from baking pan.
  7. Transfer to storage container with lid and place in refrigerator until ready to use.
  8. "Work With What You Got!"
