Simplest of all, even if you can't cook you ought to be able to make this! Recipe by actress Brenda Blethyn from Nigel Slater's 'Taste of My Life' TV series: http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/prawnswithgarlicbutt_86031
1 tbsp olive oil
12 large raw prawns
Some years ago I realized that garlic was one of my favourite flavours. I really liked it raw in salads, especially tomato salad with basil and olive oil. It occurred to me that putting garlic into food was sometimes not very good if the garlic went in at the beginning of the cooking process. I...
This recipe seems pretty simple and easy to prepare. It should make a good side dish.
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 medium zucchini, cut in half lengthwise then cut into half moon slices...
This is a recipe that we have used quite a lot and enjoy. It is adapted from a recipe from the NouveauRaw site for a creamy garlic dill sauce.
1 cup raw cashews, soaked 2 hours (or overnight)
1/2 - 1 juice of a lemon
2 tbsp olive oil
4 tbsp water
3 cloves garlic chopped...
Wild garlic pesto
This is delicious thrown through pasta, swirled through soups and stews or served as a condiment to baked potatoes or a perfectly roast chicken. Try using it as a salad dressing or popping a few dabs into your favourite sandwich. Will keep for at least a...
So I always have chicken in my freezer and sometimes will make cuts of my own chicken breast for quick and easy meals. I thought I'd have a look at Pinterest for some ideas and immediately this recipe pops up. I love garlic and once I saw garlic and chicken I thought this is something I could...
I think this should qualify for the Challenge. I like creamy things and Kale has become a big thing around here. Who's willing to try this besides @morning glory?
For the Pumpkin Sauce
1 cup sun dried...
Another one of my favorite mushroom recipes is oven roasted mushrooms. They are so good this way and make a nice side to any dish.
18 large mushrooms
3 Tbsp butter (salted)
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tsp parsley (dried or fresh)
½ tsp garlic powder
Optional: squeeze of lemon juice...

This is a very simple recipe. It would be silly to post exact quantities of ingredients. Its down to common sense and individual taste as to how much garlic you like. I made this last night to accompany roast lamb and brussels sprouts.
Garlic and thyme potatoes
4-5 large garlic cloves, finely minced
1 heaping tablespoon minced ginger root
2 Tsp olive oil
1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1 lb. thin French-style green beans, ends trimmed and cut in half
salt and fresh-ground black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to...
I'm not a great fan of sweet potatoes (too sweet for me), but this recipe achieves a perfect balance of sweet and savoury, with the spicy aromatic beurre noisette adding an unusual robust earthy note. If you don't eat butter you could substitute a 1 Tbsp of good olive oil, but you'll miss out on...
Yesterday was the day when my 3 sourdough starters all needed replenishing at the same time. I have a windowsill starter and 2 ones in the fridge at the moment. One of the ones in the fridge I am suspect about, I don't like its smell and it was meant to be replacing the old one in the fridge...
I there an easy way to deal with preparing fresh garlic, without using one of those fancy contractions, which I do not have available. I seem to struggle with chopping up the garlic, yet, I like fresh much better than the powder.
Also, should I peel the whole clove first (which I find a pain...
I made this the other day by complete accident when trying to make cheesy garlic bread. I burnt the bread but it tasted so much like a crouton, that I plan on using it forevermore with salads.
Here's what you'll need:
a loaf of potato bread (or however many slices you need)
I am expecting a lot of garlic through in the spring, and I'm wondering how I can preserve some of it so that it doesn't go to waste. A friend has suggested freezing it - which I will try - and one of the preserving books I have has a recipe for pickling it. Not sure about the picking, but...
I made a chickpea pistou last night which was excellent. possibly not the 'pulse' you were thinking on but I can't see why other pulses could not be used.
225g dried weight of chickpeas soaked overnight
8 cloves of garlic
50ml olive oil
2 onions chopped
2 large carrots chopped
I tried doing a method I saw on TV once of roasting the garlic so I don't need to peel them. Basically, you cut the top of a whole bulb of garlic, then put it in the oven with some olive oil and/or salt then allow it to roast. As the garlic softens, you will be able to just squeeze the whole...
I wouldn't normally rave about a garlic press/crusher except that we use a lot of garlic in our cooking and when we went off to cycle around the world, one of the kitchen items that was claimed by friends was an old failthful garlic crusher which I had had for decades. At the time, I thought to...
