Prep time 2 minutes
Cook time 60 minutes
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Peel off the outer layers off of the garlic head. Using a sharp knife, cut the tops off of the garlic head, approximately 1/4 inch, until the bulbs are exposed.
Set garlic head on a sheet of foil, and drizzle with 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Wrap completely in the foil, and set on a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining garlic heads.
Bake in preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until cloves are extremely soft and brown. Serve on crostini with tomatoes and flaky sea salt, add it to vegetables, mix into a salad dressing, make a roasted garlic hummus, or eat it plain!
