Air Fryer Roasted Garlic

* The Fastest Way To Roast Garlic *

Learn how to roast garlic as a whole or as individual cloves in your air fryer with step by step instructions!

Ingredients for  Air Fryer Garlic

- Whole Head of Garlic (or individual cloves) - Olive oil - Kosher salt

Prep Garlic


Use a sharp knife to slice off the top of the garlic bulb, just enough to expose the cloves inside.

Season the garlic

Place garlic on a piece of aluminum foil. Drizzle the garlic with olive oil. If using, sprinkle it with salt.


Form a pouch

Repeat the same process for all your garlic bulbs and wrap each head tightly with foil forming a small pouch.


Air Fry

Arrange the pouch in the air fryer basket. If you are roasting multiple heads of garlic, be sure not to overcrowd the basket. Air fry for 18 minutes.


Squeeze & Enjoy!

You can use your hands to squeeze the garlic from the whole head, or you can use a small spoon to scoop out the garlic from each individual clove.


Use Right Away or  Store for Later

Air fried roasted garlic can be stored in a jar or can be mashed and frozen in an ice tray.
