Easy Roasted Garlic Recipe: This Delicious Roasted Garlic Recipe Is Healthier & Tastes Better Than Butter

Roasted garlic is delicious, and when roasted, it can literally melt in your mouth. Plus, garlic is an anti-inflammatory that has several health benefits, including boosting immunity. Instead of butter, use roasted garlic as a condiment, a healthy spread, or add it to mashed potatoes, pasta or dressings. It’s so easy to make, and can be kept in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
