Garlic in any form is a wonderful partner for savory foods. Add it to cheese, vegetables, meat, pretty much anything. Add this to anything for just a boost of garlic flavor. Combine it with a slight amount of olive oil for a lovely coating for fish or roasting vegetables like squash or sweet potatoes.
Garlic chicken is a classic dish that pairs well with a variety of sides, vegetables included. First things first, melt about a tablespoon of butter in a pan and then add 3 to 4 teaspoons of garlic powder. You may have the desire to add some salt to your recipe, which is fine, since garlic salt is such a timeless combination of flavors. Fry some boneless skinless chicken in this butter, as much as you can manage or want, and be sure the whole thing is covered in butter and garlicky flavor. When it is finished frying, set it on some paper towels to absorb the excess liquid and then add a little more garlic powder to taste. Add some green beans and slivered almonds to the side for a flavorful meal.
Your homemade savory soups, stews, and sauces probably need a little something, and that little something is probably garlic.
