One thing both J and I love to smell during the winter months esp. is the smell of garlic roasitng in the house. It is intoxicating. We figured out the settings needed for our toaster oven to do a proper job, and we are so happy for it.

(it’s been much cooler in the month of Dec – Feb here, temp avg. around 11-17C, and with non insulated housing [ for the humid months] and no central heating, it took a bit of playing around to get the right temp to cook it in the proper time.)


Cut top off, drizzle olive oil, dash of salt, cover with foil in pan, roast, enjoy aromas, then devour.

Toaster oven in winter: 375F for 1-1/4 hour, then left inside to cool down for 1/2 hour.

In our Vancouver convection oven: 325F for 45 min, and left inside to cool down for 1/2 – 1 hour.

If you like it less pungent, lower temp and lengthen roast time :)

  1. Yum! Yum! I love this, I especially love it on bread with a little feta cheese and red onion…maybe a little vinagrette dripped over it!
