  • First step - take the whole head of garlic and cut off the top of the garlic bulbs (the root end) so each of the cloves in their paper are "exposed".
    2 heads garlic
  • Next, put the cut bulb into the center of a piece of aluminum foil and curve the sides up around it to make a basket
  • Then place the bulb, exposed side up, into the foil basket.
  • Drizzle olive oil, salt and pepper over the bulb.
    2 tsp olive oil, salt, pepper
  • Place the tin foil packet into the air fryer basket and air fry at 400 for 25-30 minutes. It may take a little longer depending on the size of your garlic bulbs. If you've got small heads of garlic, it may only take 20 minutes.
  • You'll know the bulbs are done if they're soft when you poke them with a knife.
  • You can pop them out of their little sleeves with a small spoon.


Storage options:
  • Store bulbs in refrigerator for 3-4 days
  • Remove bulbs and submerge in olive oil and refrigerate for 10 days
  • Remove bulbs and submerge in olive oil and freeze in ice cube trays. When frozen - remove from trays and place in freezer bag.
