Garlic is a staple in many kitchens, and Roasted Garlic Seasoning can be made at home with 3 easy steps. Roasting garlic will give you a more mellow flavor than raw garlic, making it perfect for seasoning your dishes. Roasted Garlic Seasoning adds an aromatic dimension to any meal that cannot be replicated by store-bought seasonings.
The first thing you need to do is peel the garlic cloves and place them on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Drizzle the peeled cloves with olive oil and cover them loosely with another piece of parchment or aluminum foil before roasting for 20 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit until they are golden brown, fragrant, and tender enough to mash with a fork. Roasted garlic will store in the refrigerator for up to one week or frozen for several months.
The second step is to add roasted garlic, salt, and pepper (optional) into your food processor and pulse until it forms a smooth but coarse paste, so you get some texture when adding it later on. Roasted garlic is a fantastic addition to all kinds of recipes like soups, salad dressings, and dips.
The third step is to use the roasted garlic paste as you would typically use dry or fresh minced garlic in your favorite dishes. Roast some whole heads at once if you have more time to always have them on hand for a quick meal.
This Roasted Garlic Seasoning is easy to make, and you will always have the ingredients on hand for your favorite recipes or dishes that call for garlic. You can also use this roasted garlic seasoning as a marinade, rub, or salad dressings to add an extra flavor boost!
