  • 1 head of garlic, or more
  • extra virgin olive oil


  • Preheat the oven to 400. 
  • Trim the head of the garlic so all the cloves are exposed.
  • Rub extra virgin olive oil on the exposed cloves.
  • Tuck a small piece of foil around the garlic if using a muffin tin, or wrap whole heads of garlic in foil and place on a baking sheet. 
  • Roast for 30 minutes. If using a muffin tin, you can remove the foil at 20 minutes to keep an eye on browning for the remaining 10 minutes. 
  • Cool or enjoy hot!
