These 13 easy garlic recipes have the perfect touch of garlic, not overpowering. They are family-friendly. Garlic lovers or not, everyone will crave for more and more yumminess.
Who doesn't love garlic? When I first got married, my husband told me that I was too heavy-handed when it comes to garlic. He just wants to have enough not overpowering garlicky dishes. So, I started to ease up a bit. Do I still love to have some very garlicky food? Oh yeah! No doubt about that, especially for someone, like me, grew up with pickled garlic. I enjoy those very garlicky dishes when I cook for one or dine out. But when I cook for the family, I will put just enough garlic to make everybody happy.
While we are on this topic, I thought that it would be fun to share with you a little Chinese story about garlic.
Cantonese pronunciation: Shung tau
Mandarin pronunciation: Suan
I once read a story. A Buddhist monk was trapped in a temple which was flooded. He was very hungry for not being able to eat due to this natural disaster. Then, he said, "If you are vegetarian food, show yourself." Oysters were one of them showing up, but not the garlic. So, according to Chinese Buddhism, Chinese vegetarian food consists of oysters, but not garlic. It was a story. Very strict Chinese vegetarians would follow this rule. They would not even touch any vegetarian meat either. Not everyone follows this "rule" 100% anymore. So, you may come across Chinese vegetarian food with garlic in it nowadays.
