Delicious Garlicky Recipes For Garlic Addicts
Perhaps one of the most ubiquitous vegetables to show up in virtually any savoury recipe is garlic. Indeed, it’s often thought of less as a vegetable and more as a herb/flavouring, though like any vegetable it contains many wonderful properties over and above it’s flavour. Check out this Healthline article for a full rundown of Garlic’s beneficial qualities - both nutritional and medicinal.
But really, it’s ALL about the flavour it brings to so many dishes - this is why we all love it so much. In springtime, many argue it’s at its best. Not only that, but the wild varieties are available to forage. If out and about in the countryside, expect to see it growing near rivers under tree-shade. It is a foragers favourite as it is nearly impossible to confuse with anything else (including potentially harmful plants). Growing in thick clumps of dark green edible leaves and small white flowers, its main giveaway is it’s unmistakable garlic smell. Seek it out and enjoy!
If you are not prone to foraging, don’t worry, we’ve collected some of our favourite garlicky recipes here, using the commonly found bulbs.
Low carb garlic bread
We couldn’t do this blog without covering garlic bread in all its myriad varieties. Often shop bought, this probably well known as a stuffed baguette and veritable carb and fat fest. We’re not going to try and pretend this isn’t delicious, but there isn’t a single diet this kind of thing can fit into.

Our go to is a baked, pizza-style, cheesy garlic bread. Under two hundred calories but you wouldn’t believe it wasn’t double or triple that from the taste!
