April 19th is National Garlic Day. Another day another national food celebration. But this is garlic! The stinking rose. Definitely celebration worthy in my book. I use plenty of garlic in my day to day cooking and could have compiled a much longer list for you of great garlic recipes. Instead a culled it down to a dozen of my favorites:
Appetizers and Sides
Chili Cheese – spicy cheese and nut log perfect for your next party
Greek Eggplant Salsa – an alternative to tomato based salsa
Garlic Cheese Toast – Claim Jumper copycat recipe
Pesto Fries – I know, you are slapping your head thinking, why didn’t I think of that?! Here’s our basic pesto recipe that you can put on so many things (but, try the fries just once – yum!)
Pickled Cherry Tomatoes – easy recipe for pickling tomatoes with garlic and rosemary
Sopa de Pollo Borracho – Soup with loads of garlic and other goodness
Pasta alla Vodka with fresh tomatoes – Use fresh tomatoes instead of the usual canned to make this classic dish (with or without the vodka)
Tola’s Basic Asian Marinade – great Asian marinade for chicken, pork, beef or fish.
Gid and Clark’s Righteous Rib Rub – if you want a dry rub instead of a marinade this is great on (or in) so many things
Tuscan Garlic and Rosemary Pork Loin – brined pork loin with loads of garlic and rosemary
Chicken Fricassee – chicken stewed in tomatoes garlic and mushrooms.
Grilled Leg of Lamb – the lamb recipe for people that don’t really like lamb (and those that do too).
No dessert recipes? I have actually tried Garlic Ice Cream… once… it is not something I will recreate, thank you very much. 🙂
