How to roast garlic

Roasting garlic is super easy to do!

First, cut about ¼ inch off of the top of the head of garlic.

Place the head of garlic on a piece of aluminum foil and drizzle with olive oil.

Close the aluminum foil around it, forming a little pouch, and bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees F.

Don’t worry about peeling the cloves! After the head of garlic is roasted, the cloves are soft enough to squeeze out, leaving behind the papery exterior.

Why use fresh herbs?

Fresh herbs are highly encouraged to be used in this garlic whipped feta dip because they have a cleaner, and brighter flavor.

Dried herbs have a more muted, and slightly bitter flavor to them, and an unpleasant leathery texture.
