Garlic puree

Garlic puree

Garlic is widely known in culinary around the world for its pungent spicy flavor, which is considered to be the most common reason for some people to avoid consuming it. How can we use garlic, without having this unpleasant effect? The answer is by replacing fresh garlic (bulbs, cloves, etc.) with garlic paste or puree. Usually to make garlic puree you need first to roast the cloves in the oven and that takes long. I am going to show you a convenient, easy and fast technique to puree garlic. Here we go…

You need:

  • 4 garlic bulbs 
  • water
  • olive oil
  • one jar

Steps:

Place the garlic bulbs in a small saucepan. Pure some water.

Bring into boil for 3 minutes. Drain the water off using the pan lid.

Follow the same procedure once again.

When cool enough to handle easily, squeeze the cloves to peel.

Once peeled: a) roughly press with a fork or b) blend in a small food processor or blender, blend till smooth.

Set aside for immediate use or add oil to cover and store refrigerated for up to 1 week, in a tightly sealed jar.

mycookingsecrets thoughts:

Remember that –>

One clove of garlic=a teaspoon of garlic paste. The paste texture differs when pressing cloves with a fork from the one blended. Use the blender for making a smoother paste.
