Garlic is particularly well known for its medicinal properties, which is why the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates used to prescribe it to his patients. The compounds in garlic have been shown to help our bodies fight various diseases, including colds and flus and even heart disease and cancer.
- Like with many foods, garlic is at it’s best when eaten raw so try using it in homemade hummus, salsa, pesto, salad dressings, etc
- Garlic is also great for adding flavour and nutrients to soups, stews, stir frys, curries, roast vegetables, homemade burgers, etc
