Friday Foodie Fix –Garlic

Friday Foodie Fix

Friday Foodie Fix

Time to get our Friday Foodie Fix with this week’s Secret Ingredient -Garlic!  I love garlic and could use it with every dinner.  I however have to limit it to my four-day rotation in order for it not to upset my delicate digestive system.

Have you ever added fresh garlic to a recipe and thought, wow this is stronger than the last time I cooked this mexican-garlic recipe?  Maybe you were using two different types of garlic.  Mexican or Italian garlic, which has a pink color on it’s skin, is more mild than white California garlic.  This will make a difference in how your dishes taste.

If you’ve also used elephant garlic in place of regular garlic I thought you might want to know, it’s not really garlic but a leek.  It does have cloves just like bulbs of garlic and it has that name.  Food can be confusing.  Do you have a favorite garlic for Friday Foodie Fix?

Black Garlic

Black Garlic

Recently on the market is Black Garlic.  Scott Kim began developing the product in South Korea in 2004.  Along with John Yi, they started the company Black Garlic, Inc.  Right now you can find their product in the San Francisco Bay area and it can be shipped from a few  distributors.  Information is on their website.  Black Garlic is fermented garlic by using a special roasting process that takes a month to develop.  There is nothing added to the garlic.  ** Have read elsewhere they soak the garlic in soy sauce which would mean it’s not gluten free.  Got confirmation from Black Garlic, Inc. there is no soy sauce in their black garlic.  It is 100% natural and ZERO additives.** The cloves are soft enough to spread and many top chefs are starting to use this ingredient.  Please let me know if you have tried it.  I’ve ordered some and can’t wait to give it a try.

Here are a few of my favorite recipes with garlic for Friday Foodie Fix.

Chilean Sea Bass with Spinach and Mushrooms garlic-white

California Cobb Salad Burger

Buffalo & Beef Chili with Goats Eyes

Tomatillo Salsa

Cioppino the quick fix and the seafood base

How about you?  Do you eat lots of garlic?  It’s really good for you.  Please share your recipes using garlic here with Mr. Linky.  He’s very easy to use.  All you need to do is add the name of your blog and title of the recipe, then the next line requires the URL for that recipe.  Next click enter and you’ve just added the link to your recipe.  Read this for more details on the rules.

My challenge to the foodie world is to get at least 30 recipes here that include garlic.  So are you up for this?  Can you help?  Add yours and then tell others to come and add their recipes. Let’s see how much we love garlic.

    I use a lot of garlic in cooking…the recipe I posted, Crockpot Garlic Chicken, uses 20 to 40 cloves of garlic, but isn't strong at all because of the long cooking time.

    This is probably my favorite dish right now… since I no longer can eat traditional pizza. BUFFALO CHICKEN WING DIP! It is naturally gluten free, so you don't have to sub anything that compromises the taste. http://switch2glutenfree.com/gf-recipes/buffalo-c

    Wow! It's taken me three days (off and on LOL) to get through all these and visiting the sites of the recipe authors. Great job, everyone! And, thanks as always, Diane! Looking forward to shrimp next one … one of my very favorites! :-)
