While garlic is well known for adding flavour to multiple savoury dishes, most people are not aware that it contains a lot of health benefits as well.
Garlic has naturally powerful antibiotic, antifungal, and antiviral properties! When coming down with the flu or cold, simply chop fresh garlic and add it to your teas or foods to help speed up the healing process.
Garlic contains a sulfur compound known as allicin, an active ingredient that not only contributes to its delicious aroma, but it is also projected to help reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, high cholesterol and inflammation caused by free radicals.
There are quite a few ways to enjoy garlic, or use it purely for healing methods. Below are some recipes that you can use at home:
HOT LEMON TEA:
Chop 1 clove of garlic and let it rest for 5 minutes (this will activate the allicin). Add to a small pot of water with 3 lemon slices and 1 tbsp organic raw honey. Let come to a boil and add to your favourite mug. Have 1 cup in the morning and 1 at night to fight your illness!
HOMEMADE ROASTED GARLIC SPREAD:
Take 2-4 garlic bulbs and chop the top off with the stem so that the cloves are exposed. Drizzle with 1-2 tbsp. of olive oil and wrap in foil. Place on a baking tray and bake at 375 degrees for 40-45 minutes, or until cloves are tender. Once ready and cooled, squeeze garlic from bulbs and spread on your favourite crostini!
HONEY GARLIC SHRIMP<
Peel and de-vein 7-10 shrimp. Marinate in 2-3 tbsp. honey and 1-1 ½ tsp. Spice World Minced Garlic. Season with salt and pepper and pan fry or BBQ for 3- minutes on each side. Serve with your favourite vegetables and enjoy! *Use tofu for a vegan alternative.
Add 1 handful of finely chopped basil, 3/4 cup of Mike & Mike's pine nuts, 2 tbsp olive oil, salt, pepper, 3 garlic cloves and parmesan cheese to taste (alternatively nutritional yeast) to a food processor. Blend and add to your favourite pasta.
