Roasted Garlic Recipe


Roasted Garlic is one of those things that just has so many uses.
Some of my favorites are:
  • Spread on warm whole wheat French bread for AMAZING garlic bread
  • Mixed with Marinara Sauce for a Roasted Garlic Marinara
  • Mixed with Hummus for a yummy Roasted Garlic Hummus
  • Tossed with Orzo for Roasted Garlic Orzo

Roasted Garlic

Ingredients
1 medium head of garlic
1 tablespoon  olive oil

Preparation

     1. Preheat oven 400 degrees F.
     2.Cut 1/4 to 1/2 inch off the top of the bulb of garlic to expose the cloves. Place garlic on foil with
        exposed cloves facing up.



     3. Drizzle with olive oil and close the foil lightly around the garlic. Place in a small baking dish and bake
         for 30 minutes, until garlic is golden and cloves are soft.




 4. Once garlic is cooled cloves can be peeled out of the skin or if using it for a paste the garlic can be    squeezed out by squeezing from the bottom to the top.

Notes:
  •  If making several bulbs at once a cupcake tin works well.
  •  I really like the Whole Wheat Demi French Bread at Target for Garlic Bread....It toasts up nicely and  still stays soft on the inside. I also find it works well on the grill for grilled Garlic Bread.
