Garlic Oil


This garlic-infused olive oil adds a kick to marinades and dressings and is perfect as a simple dip for warm bread.

  • Yield: Makes 1 cup

Source: Everyday Food, July/August 2011


  • 1 head garlic
  • 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Smash and peel cloves of garlic. Transfer to a medium pot, add olive oil, and heat over medium-low until bubbles form around garlic, 3 minutes. Let cook 10 minutes, reducing heat to low if garlic begins to brown. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature, 45 minutes.

    Can I use coconut oil, instead of olive oil? I make my own coconut oil.

    I think you do leave the cloves in the oil. In the "Chicken Marinated in Garlic Oil" recipe Sarah says to use this oil plus some of the cloves.

    Do you leave the garlic in the oil once it's cooked?
