The color won't be the same as when roasted in the oven but the flavor is wonderful! Use the garlic to make garlic bread, aioli... the possibilities are endless. Enjoy!

  • Cut 1/4 inch off the top of the garlic bulb and place into the steamer basket. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Close and lock the lid. Select Poultry function according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 10 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 10 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Remove garlic and cool until easily handled, about 5 minutes. Squeeze garlic pulp into a glass jar and refrigerate.

Cook's Note:

Double or triple the recipe if desired. You can cook as many garlic bulbs as will fit in the basket.

5.14.18 Needed some roasted garlic for Chunky Garlic Bread, another recipe on this site. My Instant Pot® already was out on the countertop from hard boiling some eggs today, so I thought WTH, let’s give this recipe a try. This is the real deal, folks, cooked up perfectly, popped right out of the skin, and no hot oven to heat up my kitchen. This is an awesome way to roast garlic! Read More

Excellent!! Made a little foil tray for on top of the rack and placed 4 or 6 heads of prepared garlic on it. Followed cooking instructions and this was so easy and so awesome!! I used some right away and the extra went into little snack sized zip-seal baggies and into the freezer! Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

Excellent way to use up fresh garlic! I had a batch that was looking a little sad, but a quick trip the Instant Pot had the entire house smelling amazing. I layered up multiple bulbs of garlic and it still worked great. Read More
