Roasted Garlic

Roasted Garlic is easy to make, and makes a delicious addition to bread, soups and stews!
– – – – – –
Have you ever roasted garlic?  Then smothered it on crusty bread?  Or added it to soups, stews and other yummy things?  I hadn’t either.  Till now.  When garlic is roasted it becomes sweeter, milder and soft enough to spread.
Divine decadence it is.
Take a full head of garlic, and cut off the top just to expose the cloves inside.
Drizzle with some olive oil.
Wrap in tin foil.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 1 hour.
 Spread it as is on toast.
Add it to soups and stews.
Add it to dips.
Toss it with tomatoes and pasta.
Toss it with steamed or roasted veggies.
Basically, you can add it to anything you would usually put garlic in.
Yum.

Parsley or mint gum anyone?  😉

    I love squeezing the garlic out right onto a piece of fresh Italian bread. So yummy! I could eat garlic with every meal if I wouldn’t offend – ha!

    I just love everything about roasted garlic. It makes the place smell sooo good and it tastes super delish! I make a great garlic mashed potato for the holidays that are always a huge hit…must be because it has roasted garlic in it!

    I’d love for you to link up and share:
