Health Benefits 

The health benefits in this recipe come from the sizable amount of garlic used in its preparation – it calls for an entire clove of this amazing herb. Garlic is one of the best sources of allicin, the compound that gives garlic its distinctive odor and pungent smell. When digested, the allicin functions as an antibacterial agent, blood thinner, immunity booster, and perhaps most importantly, as a cancer fighting antioxidant that eliminates free radicals from the body.
