Creamy Five Minute Garlic Sauce

BY : PUBLISHED : July 22nd, 2015 UPDATED: August 18th, 2021

This sauce is the perfect quick fix for so many meals. If you love garlic you’re going to use it all the time. Adjust the garlic to your taste preference and just blend it up! It’s raw, so can have a bite depending on how much garlic you put in, but will mellow after a few hours in the fridge. For an easy noodle bowl: cook favorite noodles, use steam from cooking noodles to power steamer basket filled with veggies of choice, while cooking blend all sauce ingredients. Pour over veggies and noodles generously and dig in. Easy! If you love garlic, or feel like you’re fighting a cold this is the perfect recipe to have on hand.
