paste is similar to minced. i learned from my Chef, when you're too tired to cut more parsley or garlic, you've minced.

sprinkle cloves to be minced with kosher or coarse seasalt.

roasted garlic has an entirely different flavor and strength. I keep some handy in the freezer for bread recipes.

Yes, roasted garlic is great and already a paste, but entirely different flavor.
I make a coleslaw dressing that calls for minced garlic and sometimes I use the garlic press, sometimes I mince it with a knife, but roasted garlic would really alter the taste. And probably be just as good in its own way (lol)

I agree that garlic presses are evil I have one somewhere, but I always hated cleaning it. I use my knife to smash and then mince garlic for just about everything except garlic bread - it needs to be a paste for that.

Keep on keepin' on, Pacanis
