10 ways to use fermented garlic? Black garlic dishes and recipes

Enjoy the benefits of fermented garlic, which doesn’t have the characteristic garlic odour but does have a richer flavour.

Black garlic – also known as fermented garlic – lends your dishes an intense, sweet flavour. Fermented garlic no longer has the pungent scent and flavour that raw garlic does. Black garlic works perfectly in risottos, soups and pastas. It gives dishes a richer flavour. It’s delicious in all kinds of purees and mashes. Dressings such as black garlic dressing are healthy and very tasty. Furthermore, the colour of black garlic can make your dish a real eye-catcher. Some say that it gives vegetarian dishes a wonderful umami flavour.
