  • 15 Garlic Bulbs
  • 35-40g (2½-3T) Extra Virgin Olive Oil


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (176°C). Slice each bulb about ⅓ of the way from the top. Lay them out, opened, on a cutting board.
  • Slowly drizzle the oil on each top and bottom portions. Sandwich together.
  • Arrange the bulbs onto a piece of foil. Take another piece of foil, equal in size, and create a pouch. Securely fold up the sides.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 2 hours. Turn off the heat, remove the roasted garlic pouch, and let it rest for 15-20 minutes.
  • Open the pouch and squeeze out the garlic cloves into a bowl. Let them cool completely before storing in an air-tight container. Refrigerate for 3 days, or freeze for 1 month.

*Bunny Wisdom*

  • Smaller bulbs will require you to cut the garlic in half.
  • If the bulbs are large, use more olive oil.
  • Try to not keep the garlic frozen for long periods, as the flavors are not as fresh and the oil can stale.
  • Roasted garlic is great for soups, sauces, and pasta. It is also good to use when a recipe requires it, and you don’t want the sharpness of fresh garlic.
