So lets talk garlic.
You can buy these super convenient little glass jars of garlic, some whole cloves, minced, chopped, a whole bunch of different varieties in the grocery store. They are great, and really fast and easy, I have a jar in my fridge right now! But those little guys aren’t always the best option. When you really want to get a super rich, savory garlic flavor you’ve got to roast it! Taking the extra step to roast your garlic can make your lasagna, mashed potatoes, or whatever your making extra special.
So, here we go!
Grab some garlic and lop off the top. Just cut it right off.
Then drizzle a good dose of olive oil over your garlic, wrap up your heads of garlic individually with aluminum foil.
Now you have two options, throw your garlic in a 400 degree oven for about 45 minutes, or place it in a small slow cooker and just leave on low all day. I really love the slow cooker option because you don’t have to crank up your oven, either will work great.
Now that your house is smelling super great and your garlic is done, take it out and let it cool for a bit. When it is cool enough to unwrap you will be able to squeeze the garlic right out.
There you have it, it sounds a lot fancier than it really is. The next time you need to add a little oomph to your dish try it!
