No worries…you can still use garlic that has sprouted. Just make sure you remove the green part inside each clove; it will impart a bitter flavor in your food.
Truc (Tip): Do not, however, use a sprouted head of garlic for roasting whole. And here is how to roast garlic: Slice off the root end of an unsprouted head of garlic, place on a piece of foil on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, season, close foil, and roast in a 350-degree oven for about 40 minutes or until soft and a bit browned. Squeeze cloves directly onto bread or add to other dishes, such as mashed potatoes or a salad vinaigrette.
