This quick and easy how to make roasted garlic walk-through will have you adding roasted garlic to all your dishes! Roasted garlic is a simple pleasure and is super easy to do!
This how to shows you exactly how quick and simple roasting garlic is…snip the tops, drizzle with olive oil and roast them in the oven.
To get started, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and select a baking dish that will fit how many garlic bulbs you would like to roast. On occasion, I roast only a single garlic bulb and use a small porcelain bowl that is OK in oven temps up to 350 degrees. Other times, I simply throw a garlic bulb or cloves in when I am roasting vegetables…so, you are definitely not restricted to doing this only one way!
You can use scissors to snip the ends off (as I did in the video) or cut the tops off with a knife. Place the garlic, with the cut tops facing upward, in a small baking dish and drizzle with olive oil. Place in your preheated oven and allow them to roast for 30-35 minutes, or until they are golden brown on the top and slightly bubbling from the oil and juices. Let the roasted garlic cool enough to handle for immediate use, or let them cool to room temperature and refrigerate any unused portions.

How To Make Roasted Garlic
- 2 garlic bulbs (or more!)
- 2 Tbsp (30 ml) olive oil
- Cut the tops off the garlic bulbs, place in a baking dish or in aluminum foil (with ends folded up to hold olive oil). Add olive oil (generous amount of olive oil is good) and bake for 30-35 minutes at 350 degrees F (175 degrees F) until golden color starts showing. You will be able to smell the roasted garlic smell as well.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool. If using immediately, wait long enough to be able to handle the hot garlic clove contents. Then, simply squeeze the tapered end and push the soft, roasted garlic out. Store the remaining roasted garlic in an air tight container in the refrigerator.
