2 Minutes is being generous. Since I buy roasted garlic, this roasted garlic sauce takes 60 seconds to put together. Toss garlic in Ninja. Toss olive oil in Ninja. Toss milk in Ninja. Salt and pepper. Whzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Done!
Unless . . . of course . . . your dog eats the entire bowl full of roasted garlic. [‘ᴥ’] You see, I had chosen to shoot photos of said roasted garlic sauce in the late afternoon. Unfortunately, the best spot for natural light at that time is on the floor in front of our balcony doors. David had taken Darwin out for a walk, so when I started cleaning up, I left the bowl of garlic on the floor, along with a few other things, to grab when I finished the first trip to the sink. David and fuzzybritches got home and, like a dunce, I spaced that the garlic was on the floor until . . .
CHOMP, NOM NOM NOM, LICK, SLURP, BURP. Yea. Guess our puppy likes garlic as much as we do. Then commenced my meltdown, because I had read that garlic can kill dogs if consumed in large quantities and YOU GUYS. He had a LOT of garlic. So then I measured out the same amount of garlic again, weighed it, called vet to find out the dangerous dose, did some hard math to figure out what dosage of said poison I had just fed my beloved fur-child.
Long story short… he is going to be just fine. (Which David assured me multiple times as I bawled my eyes out about being the worst puppy-mother ever to walk the planet.) Aside from the WORST garlic breath I have ever experienced in my life, Darwin is doing great. He even tends to exude the odor of roasted garlic as he walks about the house, but hey! We won’t have to worry about vampires coming within 100 miles of our place!
Anywho . . . back to this roasted garlic sauce . . .
Whether we are having salad, pizza, tacos, a roast, or a rice bowl, it is all about the sauce for me. My favorite way to use this roasted garlic sauce is on homemade pizza, but I have also been known to use it for tacos, quesadillas, chicken marinade, rice bowls, sandwiches, and noodles. (Thumbs up on the noodles.)
This recipe makes just the right amount to cover one pizza or as an optional sauce on tacos for two. If you want extra sauce, double the recipe. If you want to use it on noodles use 1 recipe of roasted garlic sauce per 4 ounces of noodles, depending on how saucy you like your noodles! If you need to thicken the sauce (which I do when I use it on sandwiches), cut the amount of milk in half.
But most importantly… keep mints handy!
