From left to right: garlic; tomatoes and garlic; garlic and stuffed boiled eggs with tuna, chives, onions and garlic- garnished with black pepper.
I know I showcased quite a bit of garlic. But in Turkey you can buy garlic in hordes literally. I bought about 100 garlic bulbs with the stalks still on them. I questioned the practicality of doing so on my part. I can understand for typical Turkish families which can be quite large and those mom and pop restaurant businesses which use quite a bit of garlic daily.
But for my lonesome, it worked out quite well. And they stayed fresh. Of course I used cloves of garlic in almost every meal that I prepared including breakfast and snacks, hence the stuffed boiled eggs.
