This a really simple appetizer to make. If you haven't had roasted garlic before, you'll be amazed how roasting makes the pungent garlic into a buttery, mellow spread. I like it best spread on fresh bread with goat cheese on top. Its also a great butter and mayonnaise substitute for sandwiches, that's low in calories. (Ignore the 83% fat percentage in the nutritional information below, its counting all of the olive oil, most of which slips off) The whole head of garlic has only 24 calories!!

1 head garlic
1/2 teaspoon olive oil

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Chop top 1/5 of garlic head (from the pointy tip). Discard any extra garlic skin, leaving most of it intact. Place garlic head in a medium sized piece of aluminum foil. Pour olive oil on top of garlic. Wrap foil around garlic, encompassing the entire head. Bake in oven until the garlic is golden brown and the garlic pulp is easily removed from its individual shell (around 40 minutes). Remove from oven; let cool.
