No matter what your diet preferences, garlic can help you take your meals to another level. Whether it is a vegetable or meat, garlic can penetrate deeper into layers of ingredients and make them more suited for your palate. If you do not overdo it and manage to strike a balance of its flavours and aroma with other spices and ingredients, here are some breakfast dishes that you can try out.

Garlic Mushroom Omelette

It can be difficult to add a variety of flavours to mushrooms and get rid of earthy notes, but the task is possible if you saute a handful of sliced mushrooms with garlic. Once the garlic turns brown and the mushrooms turn a little dry, top the skillet with a beaten mixture of eggs. A delicious yet nutritious omelette will be ready in just a few minutes.

Garlic Avocado Toast

Avocado is also known for its strong flavours that not many like when they begin to eat the fruit. However, one of the ways to balance its strong notes is by mashing it with some garlic, black pepper, salt to taste, and lemon juice. You can add a teaspoon of red chilli flakes to the mix too. Apply this irresistible combination on toast and enjoy a hearty breakfast with a cup of tea or coffee.

Garlic Spinach Breakfast Wrap

Spinach is one of the most nutritious leafy greens that boasts slight bitter notes. Saute a bunch of fresh greens with minced garlic in a pan until the leaves reduce in amount and size. Layer this mixture on a tortilla wrap along with scrambled eggs, pickled onions and beetroot, lettuce, and sauces of your choice. Enjoy this delicious breakfast wrap in the morning.

Garlic Potatoes

Potatoes being the most versatile and staple vegetable, especially in India, pair well with garlic. Dice or slice potatoes and toss them with olive oil, salt to taste, black pepper, and minced garlic. Roast the vegetable until it turns golden brown and crispy. You can enjoy it as is or serve it as a side dish with your omelette. If you have made sliced potatoes, you can serve them with parathe or dal chawal for lunch.

Garlic Tomato Bruschetta

Bruschetta is an easy breakfast recipe. When you have just tomato, onions, and garlic at home, you can make bruschetta in less than 20 minutes. Toss minced garlic and chopped tomatoes, fresh coriander leaves, and onions in a bowl along with salt to taste, chilli powder, and lemon juice (it alone will make your mouth water). Spread this on toast, sprinkle cheese on the top, and microwave for 1 minute. Enjoy this delicious Mexican dish for breakfast.

Garlic Butter Toast

Another quick dish to try out in the morning when you don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen is garlic butter toast. Prepare a smooth concoction of melted butter, mince garlic, and freshly chopped parsley or coriander leaves. Apply this over slices of bread and toast them in the oven. Once out, apply the butter and garlic mixture again in small amounts and enjoy a delicious serving of toast along with tea or coffee in the morning.
