One of the best ways to use garlic is by roasting it in the oven.

It couldn’t be easier – preheat the oven to 350f. Trim the top off of the bulb, drizzle olive oil over the top and seal in foil. It will take about 45 to 60 minutes for the garlic to develop a wonderful, creamy texture that makes the best garlic bread in the universe!

Other Ways to Use Roasted Garlic

In dips.

Blend a roasted garlic clove into white bean dip or hummus. If you want a stronger garlic flavor, add one clove at a time to suit your tastes.

 In mashed potatoes.

Who doesn’t love roasted garlic mashed potatoes?! Try it in these classic mashed potatoes, this creamy cauliflower mash, or this parsnip puree.

In pasta.

Blend roasted garlic into this creamy butternut squash sauce or this pumpkin pasta sauce. It’s also fantastic in the filling of my butternut squash ravioli.

In soups.

roasted garlic into your favorite creamy soups! I love it in my curried cauliflower soup, creamy cauliflower soup, and vegan tomato soup.

On pizza.

Want to put roasted garlic front and center? Add whole cloves to your next homemade pizza! It’s a delectable topping for homemade focaccia too.

Be forewarned, however, roasted garlic will produce an enormous amount of gas! The intestinal kind! LOL
