Roasted garlic is one of those staple ingredients that I use a lot in my recipes. When roasted, garlic takes on a milder, sweeter flavor that is not so pungent and therefore not as offensive as raw garlic can be. And it's surprisingly easy!
Simply take as many garlic cloves as you need and remove some of the outer papery covering. You want to leave a layer of the skin on but not all of it. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Place the garlic cloves on a small piece of aluminum foil and drizzle with a 1/2 teaspoon of olive olive oil. Wrap it up within the foil and roast for about 10-15 minutes. When your kitchen really smells garlicky, it's probably ready. Remove from the oven and allow to cool, then just peel away the remaining skin and add to your recipe. I either mash it with a fork first or put it into the food processor or blender with any other ingredients if I'm making a dressing, sauce or veggie burgers.
