Crispy Garlic Chips – a No Fuss recipe

Crispy garlic chips are the perfect ‘seasoning’ to many dishes.

These air fried crispy pieces of garlic are easy to produce and a fancy way to enhance flavour. These chips are a different way to add a touch of garlic flavour to salads or other dishes.

Avoid burned garlic chips

As the garlic is thinly sliced it is easy to burn during frying resulting in bitter chips. Soaking the sliced garlic in ice water or blanching before cooking will remove the juice that contains allicin and sulphur both of which are responsible for causing easy burning. 

Setting the air fryer at a lower temperature avoids burning the edges before the middle is crisp. 

Pressed garlic vs sliced garlic

It is obvious that pressed garlic can’t be transformed into crispy chips, but we wanted to point out that the pressed version will always be stronger in flavour and more pungent since you break more cells.

How to store garlic chips

Although we recommend consuming these crispy garlic chips right straight after cooking when their texture is optimal, they can be stored for up to one month in an air-tight container at room temperature.
