This easy roasted garlic is perfectly roasted, smooth, and a flavorful addition to pasta, on bread, or on pizza!
- 3 bulbs garlic
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 sprig thyme fresh
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Trim the top 1/4 inch off of garlic bulbs to expose the cloves, and pull off some of the outer skin.
Place the garlic on a sheet of aluminum foil. Drizzle each garlic clove with a little olive oil, and add salt and pepper to taste.
Place a sprig of thyme on garlic, then wrap the foil tightly around the bulbs.
Roast for 40 minutes or until cloves are browned and soft.
Allow garlic to cool so you don't burn yourself. Discard thyme sprig.
Press on the outside of garlic to push cloves out of the skin and into a bowl. If you get any skin in the roasted garlic, just pick it out.
Mash garlic cloves into a smooth paste with a fork.
