Success Advice:

  • Although this recipe is fairly simple, there are a few things you should know before you begin.
  • Verify that every clove is visible. Occasionally, little cloves can be found on the side of the garlic head that are not visible when the top is cut off. Remember to cut those open as well!
  • Triple or quadruple the recipe. You can cook more than two heads of garlic in your air fryer as long as the basket isn’t overcrowded. It freezes well, so you might want to make a double batch!
  • Give it time to cool. The cloves within can burn your fingers if you try to squeeze them out, even though it feels cool on the surface.


  1. two garlic heads
  2. One tsp olive oil


  • Cut off the top of the head of garlic, with the cloves still connected, but just enough to expose them a bit. You want all the cloves slightly exposed. Place in some foil and drizzle 1 teaspoon of olive oil over the top of each head. Wrap the foil around the garlic and air fry at 380°F/193°C for 25 mins. Let it cool in the air fryer (with the door closed) for about 5/-10 minutes before squeezing – else it’ll probably burn your fingers!
  • Remove softened cloves from the skin if using in a recipe with a knife or a tiny spoon or squeeze the cloves out. If not using immediately, refrigerate for up to 4 days (or freeze). Enjoy!


Roasted garlic will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days in an airtight container. To freeze roasted garlic, simply place the cloves in a freezer-safe bag or container and store in the freezer for up to six months.
