The Garlic Sauce
When I develop a recipe or find one I like to try, I think about a few things. First off, what is the benefit? It could be taste, nutritional value, or just breaking up the routine. Even budget can come into play.
What does it add in general? Say you’re on a budget and can’t afford all of the grass fed and finished meats, or the wild caught fish, let’s say you’re on a ramen noodle kind of budget. A sauce is a great way to add flavor and healthy fats to your diet without breaking the bank. So go out and buy yourself a cheap London broil and serve it with this delicious high fat sauce. It is also great on chicken, fish, and grilled veggies. It’s not so good on pork and I’m not sure why?
This recipe is easy to make and you can change the flavor profile by stirring in your favorite fresh herbs at the end. It will keep in the fridge for about 2 weeks, but I doubt it last that long.
This is what you’ll need, time about 15 minutes or less no kidding!!
- 1 cup whole garlic cloves (I use the pre peeled ones)
- ½ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (feel free to substitute this with vinegar, or lime juice it changes the flavor and keeps things interesting)
- 2 teaspoons of sea salt
- 3 cups of avocado oil (you could use extra virgin olive oil but I prefer the clean flavors of avocado in this one)
- Some ice water for desired thickness you really don’t need too much.
That’s it, put your garlic, lemon juice, and salt in a blender or food processor (I like the Vita-Mix). Start blending on low. When it looks like some minced garlic in some lemon juice start slowly drizzling in the avocado oil (on medium speed). Blend until it looks kind of like mayonnaise (add water if you want it thinner). Put it in a jar and refrigerate it makes about a pint.
So, if I calculated this correctly, we should have about 16 servings per container 2 tablespoon per serving.
