Cheater Roasted Garlic

BY : PUBLISHED : March 22nd, 2013 UPDATED: August 17th, 2021

Really, it’s not cheating. It’s just another method of getting that sweet, mellow, roasted garlic flavor without heating up your whole house. As a bonus, you have flavorful garlic-infused oil left over.

Use the softened garlic for whatever you’d like! Add to potato salad, spread on toast, use in a vinaigrette, eat it with a fork…

Another option, once the garlic has softened, is to smash it into the oil with a pinch of salt for a ridiculously tasty garlic spread. Try it on pizza!
