Homemade garlic oil is a perfect condiment to finish your salads, pizza, or pasta.


  • 1 bulb of garlic
  • 250ml olive oil (or vegetable oil)
  • Pinch of chili flakes


  1. Peel the garlic cloves. You can also use some garlic skins, but it’s not necessary.
  2. Pour the oil into a wok or a saucepan. Place over very low heat and add your garlic. In with chili flakes.
  3. When it starts to gently bubble, keep on the low heat and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally (with a wooden spoon).
  4. Turn the heat off and let cool completely. Transfer oil and a couple of cloves to a bottle or jar. Store refrigerated for about a month.


You can add a few chili flakes or chili powder.

Do not forget to fry the garlic to kill the bacteria.
