Roasted Garlic

Prep: 5 minutes Cook: 1 hour 15 minutes


This is a wonderful way to add flavor to mashed potatoes, soups, stews, and salad dressings, and it is also fantastic spread on bread or crackers! Make a lot of it at one time because it keeps well in the refrigerator and then you will have it when you need it.


  • fresh garlic heads
  • vegetable broth


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Slice the tops off of each whole garlic head, do not separate or peel. Place the heads in a baking dish with a small amount of vegetable broth in the bottom of the pan. (Use about 1 tablespoon per head of garlic.) Cover the pan with parchment paper and foil, bake at 400 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Cool. Invert each head of garlic over a bowl and squeeze to remove roasted garlic. Mash and mix well. Season with a bit of sea salt, if desired. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator.
