How to Roast Garlic Cloves In The Oven
Slow roasting garlic results in a creamy, sweet and mellow flavor that is the perfect compliment to spicy mustard and bright lemon juice.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
- 8 cloves whole garlic skin on
- 1/4 c lemon juice
- 2 tbs olive oil
- 1 tbs dijon mustard
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
Place whole garlic cloves on top of a 12 x 12 square of tin foil and drizzle with 1 teaspoon of the olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Wrap foil around the garlic tightly and roast in oven for 45 minutes; let cool.
In a small mason jar or bowl, combine lemon juice, 2 tbs olive oil, dijon mustard, salt and pepper. Shake or whisk until emulsified.
When garlic is cool enough to handle, gently out of skin and mash with a fork.
Add mashed garlic to the vinaigrette and shake, shake, shake until smooth.
