Place peeled (or unpeeled, if you have a trusty garlic press) garlic cloves in the press and squeeze through the small holes.
Rub peeled garlic cloves across the sharp side of a microplane.
Use a chef's knife to make lengthwise cuts through the peeled clove, then cut the strips crosswise into tiny pieces.
Cut down prep time and buy your garlic pre-minced in a jar. Just spoon out the amount you need for your recipe.
