I came up with this lazy hack for roasting garlic one day. It was hot outside and i didnt want to turn on the oven, so i tried this and it worked. 😃 (please note: im not saying this is the propper way of roasting garlic; im sharing how i roast my garlic with you, hoping it will make your life easier too.)
Cover to whole heads of garlic with a generous drizzle of olive oil. Im guessing its probably about 2 tablespoons.
Heat up the skillet about a minute until the oil starts to sizzle a little.
As soon as the oil starts to sizzle, turn down the skillet to low and cook, covered, for 45-50 mins. Turn the garlic occasionally.You will see some of the garlic from inside will liquify and start to drain out. This obviously means its cooked inside, however, i would leave it the full 45-50mins to make sure the garlic’s completely roasted. 😉
Remove from heat and let cool unil it doesn’t burn your fingers to touch it.
Then cut off the non-pointed end of the garlic, just enough so you can see the ends of the cloves, it should look like a honeycomb pattern. You will only need to cut of about 1/4″ or so.
You could scoop the cloves out with a butter knife if you like, or if you just apply slight pressure on the outside of the head if garlic, the clove with pop out by itself.
Sahtain! (Bon appetit!) 😋
