I'm looking for recipes/methods which may help in eating a whole bulb of garlic in one meal. I can't eat it raw; its just too strong for me. I know about roasting it in the oven inside of a clay pot with olive oil. That's a really good idea, but I'm looking for more ideas!
I'm also not looking for big meals that use a whole bulb as I can't eat a whole chicken or whatever in one meal. For example I recently made a variation of beef stroganoff with all the cloves of a whole bulb. I put it in the slow cooker for 6 hours. When it was done, I took out a clove and ate it. A few meals later, I realized I had accidentally avoided getting more cloves with a serving. I actually searched what was left, and wasn't able to find any whole cloves at all. Wow. Does garlic actually liquefy like that?
So yeah, I'd like to know more methods for eating a whole bulb for a meal.
Oh yeah...I'm talking garlic, not shallots. GARLIC.
