  • A shallow oven safe dish


  • plump peeled garlic cloves
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt, for sprinkling
  • Freshly ground black pepper, for sprinkling
  • Herbs or vegetables of your choice


  • Place the peeled garlic cloves in a single layer into a shallow oven safe dish like a pyrex or even a pie dish. This is key for making sure all the cloves get cooked evenly.
  • Drizzle olive oil over the cloves until they are just covered.
  • Sprinkle in the salt and pepper. Add herbs or vegetables if desired.
  • Cover and bake on 250F for 2 hours.
  • Remove from the oven, uncover and cool completely.
  • Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. Let it sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes before serving.
