1 Head of Garlic
Preheat oven to 400°.
Cut off top 1/3 of a head of garlic. Place garlic in the center of a small square of aluminum foil. Drizzle olive oil over garlic and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Wrap garlic in aluminum foil and place in oven for 40-45 minutes.
Let garlic cool until it can be handled. Squeeze garlic cloves out from the peels. Mash garlic cloves in a small bowl to make a paste. Set aside.
