The first time I tried this dip was at an Italian Restaurant. They served a complimentary bread basket with dips, and among the dips there was a whole roasted garlic. You would just pop out a roasted clove and mash it into the bread. Tasted like heaven!
You can eat the caramelized roasted garlic cloves directly out of the heads, add it to mashed potato, pastas, mash them up and add to toast or mix them with sour cream for a great dip. I mainly roast garlic when I am cooking up my homemade marinara sauce.
One or more whole heads of garlic
Preheat oven to 375 F / 190 C.
Open a squared piece of aluminum foil, big enough to have the garlic head/s in it. Cut 0.5cm of the top part of the head. Please it on the aluminum foil and drizzle olive oil and sprinkle salt on it. Fold to close the foil well. Bake for 45min. Open to cool a little and it is ready to be used.!
