Calories 21kcal


  • 1 head garlic
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • foil


  • Use a sharp knife and cut 1/4 to 1/2 an inch off the top of the head of garlic to expose the stems.
  • Remove the papery outer layer from the garlic.
  • Drizzle olive oil over the cloves and season with salt.
  • Wrap the garlic in foil and place it in the air fryer basket. Air fry for 20-30 minutes on 380 degrees. Each air fryer will cook at varying speeds. Start checking in on the garlic around 15 minutes. The garlic is finished when it turns light brown and is soft.
  • Once cooled, I like to squeeze the garlic out of their skins. You can also use a fork or knife to remove them.



You can air fry multiple heads at a time as long as they fit in the air fryer.
