Using microplane grater for garlic and ginger

(If everyone already knows about this, don't beat me up, okay?!?)

I was making mapo tofu last night and the instructions were to grate the ginger and garlic with the microplane grater. This was a revelation to me. To the point that I'm probably getting rid of my garlic press. They were about the consistency of a puree so combined with the other ingredients beautifully. No little zings of either flavor. At my age, it's the little things that mean a lot :)
