Garlic granules are dried crushed garlic cloves. They have a strong flavour and are a useful store cupboard essential. They can be used in all types of recipes, but are particularly good in soups, stews and casseroles. They also make fantastic garlic fried rice! Try making some basmati rice, then melt some butter in a pan, add a pinch of garlic granules and fry off the rice in the pan...delicious!
