One clove of garlic is the equivalent of 1 teaspoon of chopped garlic. It is also equal to 1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic and 1/8 teaspoon of dried garlic powder.
Other substitutions include 1/4 teaspoon of granulated garlic or 1/2 teaspoon of garlic juice. Shallots, elephant garlic or onion can also be used in place of garlic.
