I think the garlic should always count as an ingredient, since you have to peel it, and usually slice or chop it, which generates cleanup activities for the knife and board. I love me some garlic, but it's not like tossing a dozen baby carrots into a bowl. So I'd count it a four ingredient meal.

You could make a series of this and count up. "Coming up next, a 14-ingredient meal!! Tomorrow: we're lookin' at fifteeeeeen ingredients!! Stay tuned, right after this."

Okay, so that would mean my "three ingredient meals" would almost always be "two ingredients plus garlic!"

To peel garlic quickly: separate a clove from the head. Place it on a cutting board, and with the heel of your hand or the flat of a chef's knife, exert quick downward pressure. The flesh should separate readily from the peel this way. Trim the root end before slicing or chopping.
