They claim to hate the smell and how it clings to the house, but I know for a fact that my father radiates garlic for a couple days after eating it, causing marital strife with my dear old mom.
What are some ways they can get around cooking with this staple? I'd love to tell them to sub in another ingredient for a similar flavor boost in pasta dishes, stir-fried kale or spinach, roasted veggies, etc.

Editor: Kerri, if they don't mind onions or shallots, caramelized onions or crispy shallots are a couple flavor-boosting options. You might also want to look to recipes from cultures that don't use much garlic, particularly Japan, where the food is still flavorful and generally quite healthy.
Readers, do you have any suggestions for cooking without garlic?
