I made this using 6 cloves of garlic, but I ran them over my microplaner. The result was fabulously garlicky onions. I believe even 4 cloves would be fine if treated that way. The EVOO is listed twice, and I used less than the called-for 1/2 cup. It was still great.
Doris, Did they respond to you, because it's still does not say how much garlic? I would love to try this.
This was really good! There’s a mistake in the recipe (it leaves out garlic, but I tweeted Food & Wine, so hopefully they will fix it.) so I guessed and used 5 cloves of garlic, each cut in half. I only used one onion because it was all I had, and it definitely would’ve been better with more onion. My kids didn’t like it but my husband and I both loved it.
