Garlic, in my opinion, is one of the few things these days that is good for you and actually tastes great. Garlic is also very versatile. It can be used in both seasoning and appetizers. One of the most flavorful ways to use garlic is to roast it. Roasting a garlic clove helps bring out the flavor more, and it's incredibly easy to do.
Pour 1 cup of extra virgin olive oil into the glass bowl.
Place the clove on your cutting board, and cut it in half.
Discard the bottom portion of the clove (this will be the loose pieces once it's been cut).
Submerge the top portion of the clove into the bowl of olive oil. Place it with the top facing up; the meat of the garlic should be in the oil in order to absorb some of it.
Place the glass bowl in the oven, and cook it on 375 degrees for about 20-30 minutes.
Carefully remove the bowl from the oven and use your knife to turn the clove over. The garlic should be a deep brown color now.
