What To Do With Fresh (Wet) Garlic

You can use the whole thing (as you would a leek). Raw in salads, cooked in stir fries or garnish for soups fresh garlic is a super tasty addition to your cooking. It lasts for a very short time as it bulks up into garlic bulbs that could be stored for few months.

Potato & Beetroot Salad with Wet Garlic

Cube the roots and steam until ready. Dress with salt, olive oil and balsamic vinegar while warm. Finely chop the raw garlic and season the salad with it. Add fresh dill or parsley.


Pak Choi (Kale), Leek, Mushroom & Wet Garlic Stir-Fry

Chop the leeks and pak choi (kale) stalks and stir-fry until slightly tender. Add roughly chopped pak choi leaves and keep stirring. When the leaves are ready (depending on your taste) add salt, paprika and soy sauce. Stir-fry for another minute or so and add finely chopped wet garlic. Eggs could be added to the stir-fry either scrambled or Florentine-style. Cooked quinoa or rice is another tasty addition to turn this stir fry into a light meal.
