  • Prepare the foil: Cut a large piece of aluminum foil, as this is going to make the pouch for the garlic.
  • Prepare the garlic: Cut off the top of the garlic bulbs, to expose the cloves. Place the garlic bulbs on the aluminium foil, cut-side up.
    2 bulbs Garlic
  • Season: Drizzle olive oil, and sprinkle salt and pepper over the garlic bulbs. Pull up the sides of the foil to make a pouch, to seal off the garlic bulbs.
    2 bulbs Garlic, ¼ cup Extra virgin olive oil, 1 teaspoon Sea salt, 1 teaspoon Black pepper
  • Air Fry: Place the pouch in the air fryer basket, and air fry on 375°F for 30 minutes. Once done, let the garlic cool before squeezing the cloves out.



Note that the nutritional facts account for consumption of ¼ cup of olive oil, divided by two. In reality, you will not be consuming that much oil by using this roasted garlic in your recipes.
