Delicious Garlic-Inspired Recipes

Garlic isn’t just used to ward off vampires and other creatures, it’s also a delicious ingredient for any dish! National Garlic Day was last week but who are we kidding? We already add garlic to everything so why not celebrate it today! I found so many garlic-inspired recipes on Tasty that I’ve been dying to try, and hopefully you will too.

Tomato Mozzarella Garlic Bread Dippers

Now, I’ve changed this recipe a bit from the original. I used two different kinds of cheese, substituted butter for ghee and added more garlic for taste.

Ingredients needed:

1 loaf of bread

4 cloves of garlic (minced)

4 tablespoons of Kelapo Ghee (softened)

12 oz mozzarella cheese (sliced)

½ cup of parmesan (shredded)

¼ cup of fresh basil (chopped)

Salt (to taste)

Pepper (to taste)

½ cup of balsamic vinegar

½ cup of olive oil

Italian seasoning (to taste)

Begin by preheating your oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl add the Kelapo ghee and minced garlic then combine it all together. You’ll be brushing this on your bread, so make sure it’s evenly combined. Cut your loaf of bread in half and spread the garlic-ghee mixture on both loaves of bread. On top add the mozzarella cheese and then top with shredded parmesan. Pop the loaves in the oven to bake for about 15 minutes. Once they’re out the oven, top with the slices of tomatoes and chopped basil. Sprinkle salt and pepper to your liking. To make the dipping sauce, add the balsamic vinegar, olive oil and Italian seasoning in a sauce bowl and stir. Cut the loaves into slices with the dipping sauce and enjoy!

Garlic Parmesan Baked Carrot Fries

Ingredients needed:

2-3 carrots

1 tablespoon of Kelapo Ghee (melted)

¼ cup of Parmesan cheese

2 tablespoons of garlic powder

1 teaspoon of pepper

¼ cup of fresh parsley (chopped)

½ teaspoon of salt

Kelapo Coconut Oil Non-Stick Cooking Spray

Dipping Sauce

2 tablespoons of Greek yogurt

1 tablespoon of lemon juice

½ teaspoon of garlic salt

1 teaspoon of pepper

Start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees. Wash and dry your carrots first. Then slice each of the carrots in half and slice up the half pieces lengthwise (each half into thirds). Place the sliced carrots in a large bowl and add the melted ghee, garlic powder, parmesan cheese, parsley, salt and pepper, and stir together with a non-stick spatula. Grease a baking sheet with Kelapo Coconut Oil Spray and then spread the carrot fries on the sheet. Pop the carrot fries into the oven for 15 to 20 minutes. To make the dipping sauce, gather all the ingredients in a small bowl and mix thoroughly. You might want to add a bit more of garlic salt and pepper. Once the carrots are out the oven, serve and enjoy!

Garlic Chicken Primavera Pasta

For this recipe, I’ve substituted the olive oil for coconut oil but you can also use ghee instead.

Ingredients needed:

2 tablespoons of Kelapo Coconut Oil

4 garlic cloves (chopped)

2 chicken breasts (thinly sliced)

2 cups of asparagus (chopped)

1 cup of cherry tomato (halved)

1 cup of carrots (sliced)

2 teaspoons of pepper

2 teaspoons of salt

4 cups of penne pasta (cooked and drained)

1 cup of parmesan cheese

Heat up the coconut oil on a pasta pot over high heat and add in the minced garlic. Once it heats up a bit add in the chicken and cook for about 4 minutes or until it is no longer pink. Next, add all the veggies to the same pot and sprinkle salt and pepper. You’ll want to stir everything together and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes. Last, add in the cooked pasta and parmesan cheese. Thoroughly mix everything together so all the flavors are evenly distributed, and the cheese has melted. Taste before serving. I had to add a bit of garlic powder and cheese for my taste, but you might like the recipe as it.

Peace, love and Kelapo ♥
