Can I put aluminum foil in an air fryer?

I normally say to never do this EXCEPT for roasting garlic bulb. You do want to create high heat and maintain it so that each clove gets super tender. The best way to do this and not burn the outside before it is tender in the center is to wrap each one in foil.

All you need are 3 things. I like olive oil but you could choose avocado instead if you preferred. Salt and pepper were added to intensify the flavors, any seasonings you love could be added on top before “baking”.

  1. Whole garlic cloves
  2. Knife to slice the tops off to expose the bulbs
  3. Olive oil to drizzle on the tops
  4. Salt and pepper were the seasonings used
  5. A piece of aluminum foil wraps around each one to hold in the heat

You’ll need about 30 to 40 minutes to prep and cook these, about 20 minutes to allow them to cool enough to the touch. I recommend preheating your machine when you air fry anything.

What can I make with excess garlic?

Once you have done this process and it is stored to use later you can dice and add them to a bunch of easy and delicious recipes. A few great ones are our air fryer salsa or mashed potatoes ideas.

  • Cut tops off each head of garlic in order to expose the clove pieces inside.
  • Then cut a piece of foil just large enough to wrap around each. Lay flat and place 1 bulk in the middle of each piece of aluminum.
  • Drizzle olive oil on top of each one. Then sprinkle on some salt and pepper.
  • Fold the sides up so each piece is sealed shut. Preheat air fryer at 380 degrees F for 5 minutes.
  • Place sealed bulbs inside air fryer basket, close and cook for 23 minutes. Then unwrap the tops and cook at 400 for last 2 minutes to lightly brown the very tops.

Remove and allow to cool, then use. Store leftover roasted garlic cloves in a jar with olive oil so they are submerged, or in ice cube trays.

How do you store roasted garlic?

If you’re like me and you love roasted garlic you’re going to want to batch cook when it comes to this. I use it a whole loot so you mind as well make enough to use for the next few weeks while you’re at it.

When you’ve used all you want for that day, peel the bulb to expose all of the cloves. Keep those whole and put into a small mason jar filled with good olive oil. Make sure the pieces are submerged into it and if sealed well they will last up to 2 weeks this way. Just remove one or two at a time, dice or mash and use in your delicious recipe of choice.
