Garlic is also known as "the stinking rose," a term reportedly going back to Greek and Roman times. And OH how I love garlic! Here's a large and widely varied collection of garlic recipes that look delicious. Although there are a very small number included that use dried/granulated/powdered garlic, most of these recipes use fresh garlic. Enjoy! Please sort these recipes as (via the pulldown menu or sidebar) to what you would like to view best - either those I've most recently added or those which are most "highest rated" or "vegetarian" or whatever. There are an awful lot of options here. It's up to you.
This is very similar to a dish I enjoy at a fabulous Toronto restaurant, Jerusalem -- but the restaurant's version doesn't use raw garlic. I love the taste of this dish. If you're the only eggplant lover in your household (like I am), use a smaller eggplant, cut the sauce ingredients in half, and enjoy this yourself.
Whenever I ask what I should bring to a gathering, this is always requested! It goes well with EVERYTHING! Steak, hamburgers, chicken, pork, on sandwiches, in potato salad, on sausages (brats, dogs, polish), and on fries. It keeps well in the fridge for about a week.
