Oven Roasted Garlic
- 1 - 2 garlic heads
- 1 tblsp olive oil - per head
- salt - dash
- pepper - dash
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Peel and discard the papery outer layers of the whole garlic bulb. Cut the top quarter off each garlic head so all the cloves are exposed. Place cut side up on the prepared baking sheet. Pour each tablespoon of oil on top of each bulb and season lightly with a dash of the salt and pepper on each. Cover tightly with tinfoil and bake until the cloves are soft and golden brown, about 55 minutes to 1 hour.
Let the garlic cool. Squeeze the soft garlic flesh from each head into a bowl. Mash the flesh with a fork to blend it into a purée. This purée can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks..
