  • 1 whole bulb of garlic, unpeeled
  • 1 tsp. oil
  • square of aluminum foil (about 10” x 10”)
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 sprig thyme 2-inch


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut off the tip of the garlic bulb. Toss the bulb in a bowl with oil, and then put it on the piece of foil.
  • Sprinkle the garlic bulb with the salt and place the thyme on it.
