tasty tuesday: roast your own garlic!

Garlic is one of my favourite flavours to cook with.  It adds a punch of flavour to almost any savoury dish.  You can buy fresh garlic, dried garlic, garlic powder, garlic paste, or garlic salt!  There is a garlic for everything. 

I love using roasted garlic in soups, hummus and pasta dishes.  Roasting mellows out the flavour and will add depth to your dish.

First cut the skin off of the top of your head of garlic (as seen in the photo below).  This allows each clove to be exposed.

Then cut a piece of tinfoil big enough to fit all the way around your head of garlic.  It doesn't matter if it folds up on itself a little bit.  You want your garlic to fit snuggly inside the tinfoil.  Wrap the head of garlic in the tinfoil, leaving the top exposed.  Drizzle a couple teaspoons of olive oil over the head.

Cook the garlic in a preheated 400 degree oven for about 30-40 mins, until golden brown.

When the garlic has cooled a bit, remove the tinfoil.  You should be able to easily squeeze the roasted garlic out of the skin.
