Peel all the garlic cloves and add them into a food processor. Pulse until all the garlic pieces are minced. You can also use a garlic press to mince the garlic. If you don’t have either, you can use a knife to mince the garlic into very tiny pieces.
In a mason jar or a glass airtight container, add the minced garlic and top with vegetable oil until the oil is at least one inch above the garlic.
Marinate the garlic in the oil for at least 30 minutes to infuse. Keep in the fridge for up to a month. As you use the garlic oil, top with more vegetable oil if necessary.
Garlic fried rice
Prep your rice by using a fork or your hands to break apart some of the rice grains.
In a large pan over medium heat, add 4 tablespoons of minced garlic and 2 tablespoons of the garlic oil in the pan. Adjust these measurements if you want more garlic or oil. Saute garlic until golden brown.
Stir in your rice and continue to cook for another two to four minutes or until the rice is warm and crisp. Stir occasionally and make sure all the rice is coated in the garlic oil. Sprinkle in salt and adjust based on your preference.
Serve immediately with eggs. If you have leftovers, you can keep it in the fridge for up to 3 days and reheat in the microwave.
