“Food, to me, is always about cooking and eating with those you love and care for.” – David Chang
This is one of our new favorites! After Dave & I experienced this at a wonderful restaurant, Mint 29 in Dearborn Michigan, we were hooked. This is so easy to do, I just had to share it with you… along with a bonus on how to make your own garlic infused olive oil.
Today I’ll show you how to roast a whole bulb, as well as cloves in olive oil to produce your own infused oil. So easy & so yum!

Roasted Bulb~ You will need:
1 whole bulb of garlic
1 TBSP extra virgin olive oil

Carefully cut the top of the bulb off, about ½ inch until you see the cloves.

Fold parchment paper around the bulb, and tuck underneath.

Infused Olive Oil & Roasted Garlic Cloves~ You will need:
Pre Peeled & packaged garlic cloves, about 4 of the bags. This is equivalent to about 4 bulbs of garlic
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
¼ tsp pink Himalayan salt
In a small baking dish, place the garlic cloves in a single layer; pour olive oil over top of them ensuring they are fully covered. Add more oil if needed.
