Roasted Garlic Salt

Do it yourself flavored garlic is surpisingly simple. You can make your own Roasted garlic Salt that you can sprinkle on everything in under an hour.

Roasted Garlic Salt

Roasted garlic salt is the perfect way to flavor tons of snacks.  You can put it on popcorn, kale chips, french fries or really anything you like. Making roasted garlic salt is actually fairly simple.  This recipe is only 3 ingredients: one head of garlic, kosher salt, and olive oil.

To get started preheat your oven to 400°F.  Lay out a sheet of aluminum foil and place the head of garlic (yes the whole head) on top. Drizzle the olive oil on top and wrap up the garlic head in a pouch.  Roast the garlic in the oven for 30 – 40 minutes.  By the end, the cloves should be nice and soft.  Take it out of the oven and lower the oven to 200°F. Break up the head and cool for a minute because it might be to hot to handle.  The garlic should squeeze out of the clove’s skins.  Mash the garlic in a 9″x13″ glass baking pan into a nice puree.  Spread it out and cover with 1 cup of kosher salt.  Mix the whole thing up making sure to break up any lumps, and spread it out evenly.

Put the pan in the oven and roast for an additional 20-30 minutes.  This is to dry out the garlic puree so low and slow is key here.  The garlic salt should be ready when it’s dry to the touch.  What follows is optional.

Optional step:

I wanted the roasted  garlic salt to go on popcorn so I wanted a fine powder.  To do this, I ground the mixture up in a mortar and pestle.  If you don’t have one a fine mesh sieve and a spoon will do the trick.

Now just sprinkle this stuff on whatever you want and I am offering a lifetime money back guarantee that you will be addicted to whatever you put this on. (Disclaimer: This post is free. There’s no money.)

  1. How long does this salt keep ? Do you need to refrigerate ?


    • Hey Maria,
      It’s just salt and garlic so I’d say it would keep for a good long while. It should last for 1 year in a cool dark place (spice cabinet) no need to refrigerate it.

  2. This looks fantastic!! I plan to make some today!
