Garlic, Roasted

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Netgirls Healthy Co

Due to the high sodium content in most commercial salad dressings, I make my own. Since I prefer the flavor of roasted garlic over raw, I roast a bulb every Saturday and make salad dressings on Sundays. This recipe is from Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites.

A simple, super easy and totally healthy way to roast garlic so that it is on hand whenever you need it which, if you love garlic as much as I do, is every day – and almost every meal! I made this for Pick a Chef 2006. Thanks Netgirl!
