How to Cook Garlic

Garlic is a delicious ingredient that adds flavor to a wide variety of savory dishes. Fresh garlic is most commonly roasted or sautéed. Both of these methods draw out garlic’s sweet natural flavors, while cutting back on the potent taste and smell of raw garlic. If you’re roasting garlic, you can leave the entire head of garlic whole until you begin to prepare it for roasting. If you’re sautéing the garlic, you’ll need to remove the skin and chop or dice the garlic before adding it to the frying pan.
