Powdered garlic comes from the milling of dried garlic cloves. The taste of garlic powder is milder than that of the garlic granules, and clearly milder than raw unrefined garlic.
Garlic powder combines well with most spices and can enhance the taste of most recipes. Garlic powder can be added to pasta sauces or meat sauces, especially tomato sauces. It fits perfectly with roast chicken and lamb and adds great flavor to oven-roasted potatoes. Garlic is an essential ingredient for greek tzatziki and skordalia dip. Garlic blends perfectly with onion and there are countless recipes that start with sautéed onion and garlic to which garlic powder can be added instead of chopped cloves.
