Using a serrated knife, cut about 1/2 inch off the top of the garlic head to expose the tops of the cloves, leaving the garlic skins intact around each clove. Place garlic on a square of aluminum foil, drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and loosely twist the top of the foil to enclose the garlic. Place on the sheet tray with the other vegetables.
