Healthy Recipes That Put Garlic Front and Centre

If you’re crazy for garlic you probably want to put it in every dish you make. The good news is, there are plenty of healthy recipes that put garlic front and centre while also allowing you to get your daily dose of veggies, carbs, and protein.

Garlic: The Star Ingredient in Many Savoury Dishes

Garlic is the go-to ingredient for millions of savoury dishes -- from your favourite platter of pasta to scrumptious Asian cuisine, and from heart-warming soups and stews to delectable marinades and sauces for meat, poultry and seafood. You can add a touch to allow the other ingredients to shine, but the true garlic lover wants garlic to shine as the star ingredient of their savoury dishes. Garlic is by far one of the most prominent flavour powerhouses, readily available at grocery stores large and small. It can be used in its fresh form but is equally as popular as a powder. Fresh is ideal for marinades, stews, and sauces, while dried is perfect for rubs. It can also be used raw, cooked, or roasted to create different layers of flavour. Roasting garlic creates a sweeter more subtle flavour, while when using it raw brings out its more pungent side.

What better time to celebrate the joys of garlic than National Garlic Day on April 19th?

Sing the praises of this pungent “allium” and whip up a garlic feast laden with salads, appetizers, mains and sides all packing a delicious garlic punch.
Since garlic is a favourite for the whole family, you know you can’t lose with new recipes rich in garlicky goodness. However, be sure you are choosing the freshest garlic possible. Garlic is best when you choose firm, plump bulbs with the skin still firm to the cloves. The looser and drier the skins, the older the garlic. When prepping your garlic, if you notice it has a green stem, this indicates it is about to sprout. Remove the green as it can be bitter, and you’re good to go!

Add some flavour to your meals with garlic

Garlic is part of the allium family
And not only it is known for adding delicious flavour to recipes all over the world, it is also praised for its amazing health benefits. Garlic grows all over the world and throughout ancient history was more commonly used for its medicinal properties rather than food. These days, however, garlic is a key ingredient in many recipes, from delicious pastas to everybody's favourite garlic bread.

Nutrient-dense, garlic packs fibre, vitamin C, vitamin B6, manganese and selenium into just one clove. It’s very low calorie too, meaning it’s the perfect addition to meals for those eating in a calorie deficit. So whether you’re looking to add flavour to your dish, or wanting to fight off a cold, you can always rely on garlic.
