Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Roasting garlic cloves and combining them with olive oil and salt gives you a spread that has a consistency to match butter at room temperatures with a savory garlic flavor.


  • 2 heads of garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • Sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Slice off the top third of the heads of garlic.
  3. Place the garlic heads in a baking dish, cut side up.
  4. Drizzle with 1 Tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
  5. Roast until the garlic is very soft and the cloves are starting to pop out of their skins, 35-45 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly.
  7. Squeeze the cloves out of their skins.
  8. Drizzle the cloves with remaining olive oil, sprinkle with salt and mash with a fork until smooth.
  9. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week or freeze.
