GARLIC IN A COMA

This post is long over-due, I actually made this recipe when we were still in the thick of winter and I went to my favourite grocers Kent Street Market and saw black garlic. There’s a place in PEI, called Eureka Garlic, run by a guy who is absolutely in love with growing garlic, and a genius at it! (Also a genius company name)

Ever since I first visited LA and went to Silverlake Ramen, where they have a black garlic oil, I’ve been OBSESSED.

This is a ramen-esque soup of sorts, filled with so much flavour and texture, just how I like it!
