Smoked Garlic

While browsing the isles of Aldi for some good deals, I came across smoked garlic which was brought in from the Orkney Islands – not too far from Aberdeen. A very exciting find as I’ve never seen smoked garlic before. I purchased it and was quite excited to bring it home to try.

It has a very strong, smoky smell and a little can go a long way. Smoked garlic is wonderful roasted, and perfect used in place of normal roasted garlic – anywhere you would like a nice smoky flavour to accompany your dish. I find being vegetarian, I am exceptionally happy when I find ingredients other than meat which have been smoked. Often times it’s smoked meat that is available, so finding a nice smoked cheese, smoked paprika, or smoked garlic can do wonders for vegetarian taste buds.

Perfect uses for smoked garlic include roasted and squished onto crusty bread with some olive oil, and maybe some Brie or Camembert cheese. Or highlight it in a pasta dish – spaghettini with smoked garlic, diced tomatoes and parmesan cheese.
