### Full Answer

It takes 1/2 teaspoon of dehydrated minced garlic, which is rehydrated with water, broth or wine to equal a small clove of garlic. When using commercially packaged minced garlic, 1 teaspoon is equal to two medium-sized cloves. Garlic salt is also used as a substitute at 1/2 teaspoon per clove. When using garlic salt as a substitute, the amount of salt in the recipe should be reduced to avoid over-seasoning the dish.
