Substituting garlic with onions in a stew

if i will substitute the garlic with two more onions it will be ok?, even better?

https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/23...d-green-beans/


i know that most garlic products over here are coming from china which i prefer to to buy much from them


when i made red lentil soup i put a lot of onions (a lot) without any garlic and it's awesome.

Innovation in the kitchen is a big part of cooking.

While I wouldn't be tempted to use onions instead of garlic for a recipe such as, "Chicken with Forty Cloves of Garlic", I think its fine and fun to change things around now and then.

Let your tastebuds lead you.

I always have fresh garlic at the ready year round. I use it several times a week.
I would not use a stand in for garlic.
But everyone is different.

You can make that substitution and it will taste good. It just won't taste the same as with both garlic and onions.

You cannot "substitute" onions for garlic, because they`re not the same, so you´ll get a different flavour. Like "substituting" carrots for parsnips.
Anything with loads of onions always tastes good to me, mind you.

Onions aren’t a substitute for garlic. They taste very different.

But your stew is YOUR stew. Use what tastes good to you !

If you want to replace the garlic, use shallot. They're in the same family.

good
anyhow i've found the onions very sufficient and there was no real need for garlic for me at least


crushing garlic is a bit effort


i usually buy the dorot's product but they are not always using israeli garlic.
