Peeling one garlic clove? Annoying but doable. Peeling 5? 10? 20? For recipes for roasted chicken, potatoes, pastas, soups, and pizzas, garlic is sometimes called for in large quantities — enough to make you give up and find a garlic-free recipe.

This quick, basic way of peeling garlic used by top chefs worldwide will save you a lot of time and sanity:

First, remove a single clove.
