I have a recipe for Brown Gravy Mix which calls for 2/3 cup of dried minced garlic, which I don't have.....but I do have garlic powder. Can anyone tell me how much garlic powder to use to substitute for the dried garlic?

Do you have any fresh garlic on hand...? If so, I'd sub with that instead, maybe around 1/3-1/2 cup. If garlic powder is all you have, though, I'd start with no more than 1/3 cup and adding more to taste at the end.

Yes, I have fresh garlic, but this is for a dry mix, to use to make the gravy when needed, so I can't use the fresh garlic for it. Thanks. :)

Couldn't you make it make it and add it in increments to taste? 2/3 cup of dried minced garlic is a whole lot, but it's not going to be anything like that much garlic powder. How much gravy does the recipe make?
