How Do You Use Trader Joe's Black Garlic Seasoning?
By Haldan Kirsch
Every aisle of Trader Joe's seems to be lined with spice-blend treasures, such as their fermented black garlic seasoning. Made from slow- and long-roasted fresh garlic, black garlic has a unique, savory, umami-heavy flavor, and you can add as much as you like to practically anything.
The savory notes are an obvious choice for roasted dishes like "burnt" Brussels sprouts, but there's no reason to stop there. PopSugar says that this seasoning can easily be added to anything that you would typically add garlic to, but it also fares well in sandwiches and dips.
John Pye of Bredbo Black Garlic says the seasoning can be compared to black truffle and recommends using it with Asian-inspired dishes, noodle-based entrees, and soups. There's really no limit to using this seasoning besides your creativity, making Trader Joe's black garlic seasoning a versatile pantry performer.
