The ultimate recipe for garlic lovers. When roasting, the garlic looses it’s intense flavor and turns soft and sweet. But don’t be fooled, the smell remains. So make sure to properly vent your kitchen and feed as much garlic to your partner as you intend to eat yourself. Otherwise you might get kicked out of the bedroom for the night.
Roasted garlic can be used for a large variety of things. Add it to stews, top off your meat, spread on bread or use to make garlic butter or garlic bread.
Be aware that you are now able to snack a whole bulb of garlic but you will also smell like you ate a whole bulb of garlic!
