4 Easy Steps to Roasting Garlic

Garlic is so delicious and absolutely loaded with powerful nutrients. One of the main nutrients in garlic that boasts some of the greatest health benefits is allicin. Allicin is an extremely potent antioxidant and also has incredible anti-inflammatory properties. Many people say that garlic gives them bad breath, and while that’s true for some, particularly when not cooked, I find that most people experience less offensive breath after eating it. Garlic is also on this list of top foods that fight colds, so eat up! Give this delicious and easy-to-make roasted garlic a go the next time you are cooking dinner. It’s delicious to eat it with roasted vegetables and even all by itself.  It’s easy, nutritious and extremely tasty!

What you’ll need:

1 bulb of garlic (or more if you want to make a few!)
