3 heads of garlic
2 tbs olive oil
Salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Chop the tops of each head of garlic off, leaving the bulbs in tact but with the very top of the cloves showing. Place the garlic together on a piece of tin foil and drizzle the oil on top of the bulbs and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Tent the tin foil around the garlic and bake in the oven for 1 hour.
When the garlic comes out it should be soft and fragrant, with a roasted golden color on the top. You may be able to pull the cloves out with a fork of you could just squeeze the garlic out of the bulb and into a bowl. Roasted garlic is amazing in mashed potatoes, sauces, pasta and so on.
