Frequently, we fall in love with food based upon how it smells or how it looks. If your neighbour is cooking a roast dinner, you’re suddenly hungry and want some.

What about when you walk past a Chinese restaurant, an Indian or even McDonalds?

It might not be the food that we like, but that smell grabs our attention.

One of my all-time favourite food smells is garlic. I just love that Mediterranean smell of roasted garlic.

It is a truly amazing smell.

I live in Portugal on the Mediterranean and it is all about the garlic. Garlic is a food that is served with every lunch and dinner and the Portuguese would be lost without it. I will walk down my country lane and there will always be a strong smell of it.

You’re probably shouting at me and saying; how much you hate garlic breathe or you wish people wouldn’t cook with it.

Well it’s my favourite smell and it would be boring if we all had the same.

Just like mine is roasted garlic, I hate nuts. If I smell peanuts, I am physically sick. But that could also be my nut allergy too.

But back to that smell of the amazing roasted garlic. It is even better in the air fryer because you can cook it in the same packaging that you save it in for later, meaning that there is zero washing up and a big supply of delicious garlic for later.

Air Fryer Roasted Garlic Recipe

Can I say that this roasted garlic recipe is one of the healthiest and easiest air fryer recipes that you will ever come across.

You place your garlic bulb into a small sheet of silver foil.

Or more than one if you like as we did 3 medium bulbs at the same time, all in one little silver foil packet.

You season the garlic bulb with salt and pepper and then tightly fasten the silver foil around the garlic bulb as tight as you can.

Then cook on a medium heat in the air fryer basket.

Simple as that!

When it beeps you can open your garlic bulb and use the garlic however you like.

Why Cook Air Fryer Roasted Garlic?

To be a lazy air fryer home cook of course!

If you are rubbish at the speed of peeling garlic, then roasted air fryer garlic was invented for you.

Once cooked the air fryer roasted garlic is sliced at the top and then you can squeeze out the roasted garlic.

It has a similar texture as just cooked sweet potatoes. A bit soft, but not overly wet.

How To Store Air Fryer Roasted Garlic?

You can simply store your cooked garlic in the same silver foil that you cooked it in. I just transfer it to the fridge once it has cooled down and it was last 3 days in the fridge before it needs using.

Though, if you’re a bit slow using up all your garlic you can place it in the freezer instead and then just get it out as and when you need it.

    • Hi Priscilla

      Yes the problem would be the length of time in the air fryer. I would start at 4 minutes for the separated cloves and then adjust the time as needed until ready 🙂
