Ingredients for Fermented Garlic & Artichoke Dip

This is one of our favourite recipes to make with fermented garlic. It's got a bit of everything, veggies, gooey cheese, creamy garlicy gorgeousness.

The fermented garlic lends a subtle burst of flavour that's so different to using fresh garlic. Plus this dish is so versatile you can have it as a dip with tortilla chips, a main with veggies or as a comforting snack with hot pitta bread.

If you just can't wait for your fermented garlic to be ready, we'll let you off for using fresh but make sure you try it with the fermented kind when it's done!
