Creamy Garlic SauceNov 28 2011 by
Some people think Paula Deen is crazy. After all the lady happily drinks melted butter and some of her favorite recipes, Butter Popsicles, Gooey Butter Cake and Deep Fried Butter Balls are made almost entirely out of…yup, BUTTER! But I get her. Butter is her thang. See butter is to Paula Deen what garlic is to me. There are very few things that I don’t add garlic to. When a recipe calls for a clove or two of garlic, I add 6 or 7. Instead of pickles on my burger I add roasted garlic cloves.
Considering my undying love of garlic I’m surprised it took me this long to create a garlic sauce. I’m sure you have heard that patience is a virtue. I have trained you well, my young grasshoppers. It is time.
- 1/4 cup Garlic Gold Oil
- 1 cup low sodium vegetable broth
- 3 heaping tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1 tbsp garlic salt
- 1/2 tbsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp oregano
- In a medium sauce pan add the oil and heat over high heat. Once the oil is hot add in the nutritional yeast and lower the heat to low.
- Add the broth and stir well.
- Add the remaining ingredients, remove from heat and stir well.
Makes approximately 1 1/2 cups.

Leftover sauce can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week. We’ll be featuring several recipes over the next fews weeks utilizing this fabulous sauce.
If you are watching your salt intake instead of using 1 full tbsp of garlic salt you can use 1/2 tbsp garlic salt and 1/2 garlic powder.
I HIGHLY recommend that you use Garlic Gold Oil in this recipe. You can use a regular extra virgin olive oil but it won’t have nearly the great garlicky flavor that you get with Garlic Gold Oil.
