Did you know that there are more than 300 varieties of garlic out there? Well, you may not have easy access to all of them but garlic of one type or another can be found in just about any food market all year round. There are countless options for using garlic on culinary dishes but here is one which I particularly love for its wonderful flavor and for its easy preparation.
