How to Roast Garlic Cloves (Video)

Learn how to roast whole garlic cloves, ahead of time, to add flavor to all your meals with ease.

By Jessica Kellner

Similar to caramelizing onions, roasting garlic deepens the sweetness of this all-star ingredient and brings out a nuttiness while mellowing its pungency. Prepare whole roasted garlic cloves ahead of time and keep them stored in your freezer. This is a wonderful food to have on hand because it can add a punch of flavor to anything you can think to toss it in with. Pinch it out of its slippery skins whole or smash its cloves into a paste to whip into other ingredients such as avocados, butter or hummus. You can even swap the fresh garlic called for in many recipes with this wonderful freezer-food for added convenience.
