Send Sickness Packing: Flavor-Packed Roasted Garlic Recipe
Garlic is a superfood that works to keep sickness and chronic disease away. Studies even show that one or two cloves weekly can provide cancer-protective benefits. Make it a part of your regular diet with this recipe for roasted garlic that helps you create an amazing spread, dip, or sauce!
What you’ll need:
Garlic bulbs (as many as you would like)
1 tablespoon olive oil per bulb
Parsley to garnish
Bread or crackers to serve with garlic as a spread
What you’ll do
1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
2. Take a whole garlic bulb and pull off the excess first outer layer and leave the garlic bulb intact.
3. Next, cut off approximately 1/4 of an inch of the garlic stem portions (the pointy ends). You now should have a whole bulb of garlic still intact with the top stem cut off enough to see the actual garlic cloves.
4. Place the bulb in a baking dish and drizzle with olive oil. Let the olive oil seep into the garlic cloves and then repeat. Cover and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until garlic cloves become soft.
5. Let cool. Garnish with parsley. Then, peel open and spread garlic on bread or crackers and serve.
