Print Roasted garlic dressing

It couldn't be easier to make this mellow, caramelised garlic dressing. It's useful for anything from bringing life to a simple green salad to drizzling over steamed purple sprouting broccoli or stirring into pasta for a quick dinner. Or don't even turn the roasted garlic into dressing – it's delicious spread straight on toast.


  • 1 whole garlic bulb
  • Olive oil
  • Lemon juice
  • Salt & pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/Gas 6.
  2. Rub off the excess papery skin from the garlic, without separating the cloves. Slice off the tips, exposing the ends of the cloves. lace the garlic on a piece of foil, drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and fold the foil round to seal it. Bake until very soft, about 40 minutes.
  3. Remove from the oven. Leave to cool slightly, then squeeze out the soft pulp from the cloves into a bowl. Use a fork to whisk the garlic with 4 tablespoons of olive oil, a squeeze of lemon juice, and seasoning of salt and pepper.
