Garlic granules are made from fresh garlic that has been dehydrated. It has an intense aroma due to the concentration of flavour. Garlic can be used in soups, sauces, marinades and dressings. It can also be added to braised meat dishes, stews and casseroles. Garlic can be used to flavour butter for classic dishes like garlic prawns.

- Prepare a Thai style stir-fry of mussels with garlic, ginger and lemongrass. Fry garlic, chopped ginger, chopped lemongrass, whole dried chilli, chopped coriander stalks and lime leaves in a wok with a little oil. Add cleaned mussels with a little chicken stock and quick fry until the mussels just open. Remove the mussels to a bowl and keep warm - add coconut milk to the wok and reduce over high heat to form a sauce. Adjust the seasoning with sea salt and ground white pepper. Toss in fresh coriander - serve over the mussels.
