Garlic is one of the most versatile and commonly used ingredients around the world. There are very few dishes that don’t benefit from a garlicky hit but here I’ve been super restrained and chosen just 26 of the Best Garlic Recipes!
It doesn’t matter what I’m cooking, there is always a huge chance that garlic is involved. Sometimes its just a base flavour like in my Chorizo & Butternut Risotto or White Bean Chilli. And sometimes the flavour is front and centre like with many of the recipes below.
Garlic can be mellow and rich or sharp and spicy depending on how you treat it. One of the simplest ways to introduce garlic to many dishes is to make a compound butter. You can go straight garlic or add herbs. I love oregano!
Garlic Dips, Spreads & Sauces
From sandwich spread to dips with chips and vegan pate, garlic crops up with unsurprising regularity in these sorts of dishes. Here are a selection of my favourites.
Vegetables with Garlic
Bored of boring boiled vegetables? The solution is simple. Add garlic.
Meat with Garlic
From being park of a marinade, to part of a flavoured butter, mixed directly into the meat itself or as part of the sauce, garlic complements almost any meat. (I don’t like it with Gammon but with bacon in a pasta situation is fine. Go figure!)
Seafood with Garlic
Is there anything more appealing that the words “garlic butter prawns”? I’m not sure there is. But it turns out that you can use it with a multitude of seafood too.
Its the future. Thats what I heard anyway.
Garlic Pasta, Rice & Soups
There are some fabulous options here including a great use for black garlic which has a lovely distinct flavour and two entirely different takes on soup.
I had to work really hard to not include another 20 options just in this section alone. But I settled on four.
So now tell me what you favourite garlic recipes are!
