Roast Garlic for Dummies

I read about this tactic recently and couldn’t wait to try it out. I can’t believe I never knew how easy and quick it was to create a roasted head (or even a few cloves if that’s all you have!) of garlic, fragrant with olive oil goodness. Online postings about this are legion, but the one I emulated was here.

garlic (1 head, or more, or less)

salt and black pepper

olive oil

-cut the top off the head/s of garlic to expose the cloves

-place the garlic in a glass bowl or dish, with 1 tsp of olive oil for every head of garlic

-sprinkle with salt and pepper

-cover with a plate and microwave for 3 minutes

-continue to microwave in 1 minute intervals until the garlic is tender and cloves easily pop out of their skin

I chopped up the fruits of my labors into some silky smooth mashed potatoes for extra flavor. Any pasta dish, sandwich or vegetable dish will pop with this little addition!
