    Use 1/8 tsp for every clove of fresh garlic. A tbl will be about three cloves, so 3/8 tsp. I would go with 1/4 tsp, then taste and add a little bit more if not strong enough. Add it with the tomatoes, sauteeing the powder won't really do much.

    You must use huge cloves! I usually need 5-6 cloves to get a tablespoon of minced.

    @Dr,...Duonyte is talking about a powdered garlic conversion, not a whole clove vs. a minced one. We forgive you.

    Excuse me, I know what I'm talking about. The recipe calls for 1 tbsp minced garlic. Duonyte suggested that would be about 3 cloves, and therefore 3/8 tsp garlic powder. I find I need 5-6 cloves to make a tbsp of minced garlic, and would therefore suggest 1/2-3/4 tsp garlic powder is closer to the mark.

    Duonyte is going by conversion tables which suggest that 1 garlic clove is equal to 1 teaspoon of minced garlic, or 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder. This would make 1 tablespoon minced garlic equal to 3/8 teaspoon garlic powder. However, I also find that it generally takes two garlic cloves to equal a teaspoon, so that would mean about twice as much garlic powder in this recipe, or about 3/4 teaspoon.

    Dr. Galleon does indeed know what he's talking about!

    I do seem to have pretty large cloves - I use a fair amount of garlic and buy it pre-peeled at my market. In any event, whenever using a powdered, dehydrated form, it is much safer to use a smaller amount and add to it if a stronger flavor is desired. It's always a bit of a challenge to convert natural ingredients to some standard measure.

    The prepeeled ones do seem to be pretty big.

    You're right, of course--the best thing to do is to start with the smaller amount and taste to see if it's enough.
