Air Fryer Roasted Garlic is a simple, easy recipe that requires just 3 ingredients. Quicker than the oven, this method takes 25 minutes from start to finish. Use roasted garlic to enhance the flavor of meatloaf, dressings, and of course, homemade garlic bread.


  • 3 heads of garlic
  • 3 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F
  2. On a cutting board, use a sharp knife to cut the top 1/4 inch off of each head of garlic so the bulbs are exposed
  3. Place the cut garlic heads onto individual sheets of aluminum foil and drizzle 1 tablespoon of avocado oil over each head of garlic. Sprinkle each with a pinch of salt and use your hands to rub the oil and salt into the garlic
  4. Wrap the garlic in aluminum foil so the heads are completely covered and place into the air fryer basket. Cook at 400 F for 22-25 minutes, or until the bulbs are soft and caramelized when poked with a fork
  5. Let the roasted garlic cool before using in your favorite recipes
