Keeping this in consideration, how do you use black garlic in a recipe?
Using black garlic in recipes
- Mash some cloves with some soy sauce and chilli for an alternative stir-fry sauce.
- Combine cloves with cream cheese and herbs for a tasty dip.
- Puree some cloves with oil to create a paste then smear onto chicken or fish before roasting.
Similarly, can you substitute black garlic for regular garlic? Black garlic is not a substitute for regular garlic, you add black garlic to get a different result. The question is how much black garlic flavor you want, and only you can answer that. I'd suggest that you taste it when it's close to being done and if you want more add more then.
Also to know, does black garlic need to be cooked?
Black garlic starts off as regular whole head of garlic that is cooked at a temperature of 140 degrees Fahrenheit, in a humid environment, for nearly a month. The slow cooking process transforms the previously pungent cloves into soft, sweet, sticky and slightly acidic black or dark-brown garlic.
How much black garlic should I eat a day?
The minimum effective dose for raw garlic is one segment (clove) eaten two to three times per day. You can also take an aged garlic supplement. In that case, a normal dose is 600 to 1,200 mg per day.
