  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Slice off a small part of the top of the heads of garlic so you can just see the cloves inside.
  • Place in a baking dish.
  • Drizzle the garlic with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes until garlic is soft and squeezeable.
  • Remove from oven and let cool 5 minutes.
  • Squeeze the garlic from the heads and mash with a fork if a smooth consistency is desired.


Enjoy sauteed with vegetables, in salad dressings, mayo, and butter, or spread on almond flour crackers.
