So, what is usturoi?

Usturoi is the Romanian word for garlic, a pungent and flavorful member of the Allium family.

It is also rich in antioxidants and contains allicin, a compound that gives it its characteristic flavor and aroma. Whether minced, chopped, or roasted, usturoi is an essential ingredient in many dishes and a beloved flavor enhancer in kitchens worldwide.
