  • 2 heads of garlic
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • parchment paper or foil


  • Preheat oven to 400 F degrees. 
  • Remove any loose outer skins from garlic heads. Slice 1/4 to 1.3 inch off the top of the garlic head to expose the cloves inside.
  •  Drizzle the tops of the bulbs with olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt. Wrap in the foil or parchment paper secured with kitchen twine. 
  • Roast until the garlic cloves are lightly browned and tender, about 30 minutes. But it may take up to 40 minutes depending on the size of the garlic.


  • Garlic can be roasted without foil or parchment in a clay garlic roaster like this one here.
  • AIP compliant.
