Garlic Chives and Baked Garlic Salad 2

( Garlic Chives and Baked Garlic Salad served with Grilled Pork)

Do you like garlic? I don’t like eating raw garlic but I love eating baked garlic. It is delicately flavoured and has a savory taste, what is more it doesn’t smell as bad as raw garlic. Some naturopaths seem to think that once the garlic is baked, it is not as beneficial. Yet, some Koreans seem to believe that when the garlic is baked what it mostly loses is the bad smell and the good enzymes still remains. What do you think about this?

While I was wondering around Internet the other day, I found this very simple dish and it turned out to be a wonderful salad, which includes some baked garlic and garlic chives. I think this salad goes well with red meat, especially with pork or as one of the side dishes with rice. It has a slightly sour taste and the flavour and smell from the baked garlic is just so nice. Later, I wished that I had added more garlic.

Benefits of the garlic are ;

  • Supports the immune system
  • Helps digestion
  • Delays aging
  • Enhances blood circulation
  • Lowers cholesterol

    This looks so yummy, I can almost smell/ taste it. We love baked garlic. I can’t wait to make this dish.

  5. Hi Gdog,
    If you are considering staying longer in Korea, you might buy a toaster oven.
    Some cheap ones are available from 25,000 won here.

    Hi Kalyn,
    Thanks for hosting this event. If it wasn’t you, this salad wouldn’t get shown to the public. :)

    Hi Equinox,
    Yes baked garlic is irresistible. Yummy!

    Hi Sally,
    Yeah, if the baked garlic isn’t beneficial to our body, it is still better than nothing. :)

    Hi MeltingWok,
    Thanks for stopping by. I love the grilled BBQ. Recently I am having it once a week at least.

    Hi Helene,
    Just thinking about baked garlic, my mouth starts to water. :) Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Oh, that sounds wonderful. I love garlic, and yummy baked one!! :)
    Hope you share lots of recipes with us. :))

  7. Oh, I love side pork bellies on the korean bbq grills :) Great info on this wonderful antioxidant garlics, and chives are so flavorful in stir frys, ooh, I have to get some soon, thanks for sharing, cheers !:)

  8. I love garlic so much! Even the raw ones.

    I have heard from a lot of people saying that garlic is best when its raw (health benefits) But I guess, it’s better to have some cooked garlic than none at all right! ;p

    Your picture and presentation is wonderful! Good job again!

  9. I like fried garlic bits. Normally what is done is that the garlic is cut into small pieces and then fried in hot oil. The fried garlic bits can then be used to cook vegetables or sprinkle over steamed fish. The garlic fragance just makes the dishes more appetising.

  10. I do agree with you about the garlic. I think baked garlic is divine. This looks very tasty; great photos.

  11. Oooh…looks tasty! I wish we had a toaster oven, it’s been a while since I’ve had baked garlic. I love your pictures…they always make me hungry. ;)
