1. Pickled garlic

Pickled garlic has become a full-blown TikTok trend for good reason! Not only is it delicious, but it’s also extremely easy to make. To make it, TikToker @myhealthydish simply combines hot water, salt, sugar and vinegar in a jar, then tosses in a handful of peeled garlic cloves.

Many TikTokers believe adding sriracha, thyme and chili pepper flakes is the most delicious way to enjoy this pickled dish.

2. Garlic curry

This Pakistani curry recipe, which features whole cloves of garlic, proves garlic is more than just a seasoning. To make it, TikToker @goldengully combines ghee, peeled garlic cloves, chili powder, cumin seeds, chili peppers and water in a pot. He boils the ingredients for 10 minutes, then adds basmati rice and milk and lets the pot simmer for 30 minutes. The result is a soup-like curry full of flavorful garlic cloves.
