Garlic Recipes

Roasted Garlic Spread

1 head of garlic

Olive Oil


Pre-heat oven to 400. Peel away the outer layers of the garlic bulb skin, leaving the skins of the individual cloves intact. Cut off about 1/2 inch from the top of the bulb, exposing the individual cloves of garlic.


Place garlic in a small pouch of aluminum foil and drizzle with olive oil, making sure it is well coated. Seal the aluminum pouch and bake for 20-30 minutes. Once cool enough to touch you can simply squeeze out the roasted garlic and spread on anything you desire. Yum!


Slow Cooker Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic

3-4 pounds chicken (I recommend chicken thighs with skin and bone)
1 large onion, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons sea salt
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon pepper
20-40 garlic cloves, peeled, but intact


Place onion slices on the bottom of the slow cooker. In a large mixing bowl, toss chicken with olive oil, salt, paprika, pepper, and all of the garlic cloves. Pour into slow cooker, on top of the onion. Do not add water. Cook on high 6-8 hours or low 4-6 hours.
