This recipe is DANGEROUS.
I didn't pay attention to it and after 3 1/2 minutes the garlic CAUGHT ON FIRE and ignited the olive oil in my microwave.
It didn't even go the whole seven minutes. It started on fire after three...
Now I have to clean melted plastic out of my microwave.
This was a nice fast way to make roast garlic. Although not my preferred method it would be a great time saver when you need it in a hurry. I think my microwave runs a bit hot. My plastic wrap melted so I covered it with a paper towel to finish cooking. Thank you for posting! Made for Spring PAC 2009
I too followed this recipe pretty close - except I did not cover with plastic wrap. I made sure to cook on MEDIUM power!!! (many folks have made their mistake with this step). I used a small Pampered Chef 1 cup glass Prep bowl (its lid is not micro-safe) and covered it with a cheap white lunch plate (chip plate from mexican restaurant). The garlic came out ok. Not soft enough to 'spread' and VERY mild in flavor. It's a good quick substitution for oven roasting. will use again.
