Here’s a delicious way to enjoy everyone’s favorite aromatic herb, my Joyfull version of garlic bread. I nixed the unnecessary extras (aka butter, white bread, and cheese) and played up the simplicity of the breathtaking bulb. When you roast garlic to perfection, it transforms to a soft, spreadable, mouthwatering consistency. Helpful hint: You may want to consider serving with a mint ;).

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 4 servings
  • 1 head garlic
  • 1 to 3 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 slices whole-grain baguette
  • Coarse kosher or sea salt to taste
  • Ground black pepper to taste



Preheat oven to 400˚F. Trim the top off the head of garlic to expose the tops of the cloves. Drizzle olive oil over them, sprinkle on some kosher salt (go easy if you have high blood pressure) and ground black pepper. Wrap the whole thing in aluminum foil. Roast the garlic in the oven for about 30 minutes, until the garlic is soft.

Toast the baguette slices.

Remove the garlic from oven and gently squeeze the cloves from the skin. They should be very soft (if not, leave them in the oven longer). Spread about 3 cloves on each slice of toasted baguette and dig in!

Nutrition provided for 1 slice of baguette and 1 teaspoon olive oil.
