Method

  1. Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Cut the top off the garlic bulb, exposing the tops of the garlic cloves. Put on a small square of foil, and rub with the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Scrunch up the foil to seal in the bulb. 

  2. Roast for 25-30 mins until soft when pressed, and the papery casing is light golden. Leave to cool for a few minutes before squeezing the soft roasted garlic out of their shells. Alternatively, take off all the papery casing and remove the cloves individually.
