If you simply don't like the taste or smell of fresh garlic, you can try replacing it with dried garlic, or use it in the form of garlic oil or sauce, where it is contained. However, if you are intolerant of this product, you need to resort to more radical methods. This was reported by SSPDaily. Chefs recommend replacing garlic with the following alternatives:

  • wild garlic - wild onions;
  • capsicum, mustard, peppercorns, horseradish - although there is a slight difference in taste, they will preserve the sharpness of the dish;
  • asafoetida - an oriental spice, also called "hing", has a taste that is somewhat reminiscent of a mixture of garlic and onions, it is recommended to add it at the end of cooking and in small doses, because it is very hot;
  • ginger - leaves the dish spicy, although it can slightly change its taste.

That is, you can easily replace garlic in any dish without changing its spice and pungency, although the taste may change slightly.

What can replace garlic in marinade and sauce: seasoning as a preservative

When preparing homemade pickles, marinades, and sauces, it is important to pay close attention to what the spices you add contain. If you are intolerant to garlic or cannot eat it due to a medical condition, you can replace the product with regular or hot peppers, horseradish roots and leaves, mustard, dill (umbrella), onions, ginger, cloves.

While in ordinary dishes garlic only adds a certain flavor and aroma, in preservation it is used to better preserve food, as it contains a large amount of essential oils.

It often happens that in one family there are those who love and cannot tolerate garlic. In this case, they try to find dishes that would suit everyone. Or they use other seasonings. For example, you can use pasta, pickled or dried garlic (they have a less pronounced flavor), adjika or other sauces.
