To roast whole garlic preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the tops off the garlic about 1/2 inch down to expose all the cloves.

Put in a small baking dish and dribble with olive oil. Cover with foil and bake in the oven for about 40 minutes till golden and soft, be careful not to burn.

Cool  before handling. Squeeze out the roasted cloves and mash.
