Garlic Flavoured Olive Oil

Garlic is one of the most important culinary herbs but also one that’s a proven health tonic. Eating a clove or two of garlic a day really might keep the doctor away, as it benefits health on multiple levels.

Like many natural foods, it’s difficult to limit garlic to just one or two benefits, as it appears to offer benefits throughout our body. Garlic is rich in manganese, calcium, phosphorus, selenium, and vitamins B6 and C, so it’s beneficial for the bones as well as the thyroid.

One way to get around the peeling and mincing issue every time we want garlic in a dish is by using garlic flavoured olive oil to add maximum garlic flavor. It can upgrade an oil-based salad dressing by swapping this for the regular stuff, can be served on toasted or grilled bread for a garlic bread taste along with chopped fresh herbs to add some colour or used as the finishing touch, as a dressing, for the roasted or grilled meats or vegetables.
