Roasted garlic adds a sweet, mellow flavor to soups, dips, and pasta sauce. It’s a delicious addition to your recipes, and it lasts for a week in the refrigerator.
If you aren’t a fan of the strong taste of raw garlic, you may want to try roasting it. We like to roast garlic in the oven and then spread it on toast. We roast a few heads of garlic at a time, because once we start eating it, we can’t stop! It’s awesome on a grilled cheese sandwich or tossed into your pasta.
You might be surprised at how super simple it is to make this flavorful ingredient. Read my tutorial and make a batch of this today to add to your favorite soup, dip, or salad.
