Grilled-Roasted Garlic

Forget turning on the oven, you can roast garlic on the grill! These tender, smoky cloves are delicious incorporated into salad dressings, or simply spread atop slices of grilled bread for a summery starter.

Ingredients:
Whole garlic bulbs
Olive oil

Method:
1. Prepare the garlic by slicing the tops off the garlic bulbs (depending on the size of each bulb it should be around ¼ to a ½ of an inch from the top) to expose the individual cloves. Then drizzle the exposed garlic cloves with a good amount of olive oil.

2. Wrap the bulbs in heavy-duty aluminum foil. Place covered bulbs on a hot grill, over indirect heat, for approximately 40 minutes (this will vary based on the exact size of your bulbs). Then open the foil and use your finger to test if they’re done. They should be nice and soft to the touch when roasted through.

3. Remove and allow to cool slightly. Use a small knife or cocktail fork to gently remove the individual roasted garlic cloves from the skins and then prepare according to your chosen recipe.
