I wish you could smell my house right now. I was reading while I had this in the oven roasting. It is a head of garlic. And it smells divine.
This is such a quick, easy and delicious addition to so many meals. You can add roasted garlic to your soups, like Creamy Tomato or Potato Soup. Adding it to my mashed potatoes is one of my all time favorites. If you are roasting a chicken or any meats, just place the whole head into the roasting pan with it. I just love it. My house is a home with something in the oven cooking. My house is a happy home with roasted garlic cooking in it. Everyone is breathing deeper to inhale all the goodness, while exhaling any left over tensions. That is what Roasted Garlic does for our home and I think it will do it for yours, too. Maybe that is what is meant by garlic ridding off bad spirits. Ha! It is lovely and whatever works!
Simply, grab a whole head of garlic. Cut the top of the garlic off, just to expose the inner bulbs. Place your garlic on a piece of foil paper or put it in a small oven safe dish. I like foil, less clean up. Sprinkle the garlic bulb with kosher salt and a little extra virgin olive oil. Cook in your oven at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until the head is soft to touch and your home smells of divine roasted garlic.
Don’t be surprised if everyone begins to feel hungry, joyful, and a little less possessed by evil spirits! 😉
