Roasted garlic is an amazing thing. I can't say enough good things about how well the flavor is enhanced in any dish when garlic is added. I might even believe that you can never have too much garlic. However, to achieve the aroma and taste of roasted garlic is a feat. It takes a while (almost an hour), and leaving the oven on for that long during a hot summer day is not ideal.

Luckily, there is an easier, less time-consuming alternative. The skillet (cast-iron works best, but anything works) is about to become your new favorite kitchen essential. You can literally roast your garlic - albeit, the garlic won't be as great as the traditional oven-roasted method, but still fantastic - in two easy steps. 

  1. Separate the cloves of garlic from the bulb, and you can even leave the skins on.
  2. Place them into a skillet over medium heat. You don't need oil.

And voilá, in fifteen short minutes, you'll have delicious roasted garlic without the hassle and wait time of using an oven. Even though the traditional method is better, the harsh bite is significantly reduced, and you're only spending a fraction of the time in the kitchen. Even better, if you're planning to use your grill this summer, throw your skillet on the grill for a barbecue that is enhanced with roasted garlic.
