Recipes with organic garlic powder

Garlic is an ingredient that adds flavour and gives personality to many preparations. In addition to the intense taste, garlic boasts numerous beneficial properties that work to support the antibacterial action of the body’s natural defences. For this reason, taking reasonable amounts of garlic regularly is essential for our well-being. However, many do not want to use fresh garlic. Below we see the advantages of organic garlic powder and some quick recipes to make the most of it.

Garlic powder: properties and advantages

Garlic powder is particularly suitable for all those who love the taste of garlic but do not have the opportunity to consume fresh garlic regularly and fear that they cannot always guarantee optimal storage. In addition to offering a concrete answer to those who often travel for work or to single people, the powder version is perfect for those who do not like to cut fresh garlic. Thanks to the special dehydration processes that the garlic heads of our cultivation are subjected to, the final product keeps all the beneficial properties of fresh garlic intact. Even when it is in the form of dehydrated powder our garlic of the highest quality is rich in allicin. In addition, garlic powder is useful and very versatile for preparing dishes without effort.

How to use garlic powder: 3 quick recipes

From Middle Eastern origins to the spread in Italy, hummus is one of the most popular recipes for an aperitif. Preparing this inexpensive and very nutritious dish at the same time does not require many ingredients or even a particular effort. To make this delicious sauce that can be served as an appetizer with croutons or as an accompaniment to vegetables, 400 grams of boiled chickpeas, three teaspoons of lemon juice, two teaspoons of cumin, a teaspoon of garlic powder, salt and pepper are needed. After pouring everything into a mixer, operate by adding three tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. In a couple of minutes, you will have obtained a sauce where garlic is indispensable and adapts to those who do not like to find small pieces of garlic between their teeth. What’s more, the flavour is more delicate. In general, garlic powder is essential to flavour different sauces quickly. So to prepare an aioli, which is the typical Spanish sauce that accompanies tapas, it is enough to add a few teaspoons ofgarlic powder to a homemade mayonnaise (or to a purchased but high-quality mayonnaise). In this case, there are no rules: the original version has a rather intense flavour, but we at the Sabina Cooperative recommend a gradual approach. It is, therefore, better to taste and add until you get the desired taste. This sauce is great to accompany snacks and aperitifs. In addition, a valid alternative to the classic pasta garlic, oil and chilli pepper can be prepared with garlic powder. To get the most out of the spices and aromas you need to toast them well without burning them. For 4 people you can boil 320 g of spaghetti and in the meantime heat a frying pan with plenty of extra virgin olive oil with a tablespoon of garlic powder and a small teaspoon of chilli flakes, heating and stirring continuously to make sure that they do not burn before pouring the pasta, mixing everything and serving on the table.
