Roasted Garlic

Roasting a bulb of garlic in the oven completely changes how it tastes, it becomes a little sweeter and less garlic-y so has more of a subtle flavour in dishes. It is delicious on it’s own but works best in stews, potato dishes or with pasta.

How to roast garlic:

1. Preheat the oven to 200Β°C.

2. Chop off the top of the garlic – so it looks like the photo above.

3. Β Place the garlic on some tin foil and drizzle it with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

4. Scrunch the foil round the garlic so it’s like a little parcel.

5. Put in the oven for 40 minutes.

6. Once it’s cooked, mash the garlic up with a fork and add to a dish.
