  • 12 cloves of garlic, smashed and peels removed
  • 1 Tbl kosher salt


  1. Mince your garlic to make it easier to make the paste.
  2. To a cutting board, add the kosher salt to the chopped garlic.  The salt will help the garlic to release its juices.
  3. Next rub the side of the knife against the chopped garlic, crushing and mashing the garlic against the cutting board.
  4. As you crush and scrape the garlic, you’ll be smearing the garlic across the board.
  5. The garlic will make crunching noises as you crush it.
  6. Scrape up the smeared garlic from the cutting board to gather it together.
  7. Continue to chop and smear until the garlic reaches a mashed up, paste-like consistency, as is as chopped up as you want it to be
