SERVING SUGGESTION: For an extra portion of fruit and vegetables, serve alongside some wilted spinach.
The main flavour that we recognise as garlic comes from the chemical alliin and the enzyme alliinase mixing together when the garlic is pressed or crushed. This creates the unmistakable flavour of fresh garlic and is why the smaller you dice garlic, the more pungent and intense it becomes. So, for spicy fresh garlic, go for a super-fine chop; but for mellow flavour, try adding whole cloves lightly crushed to dishes.
