Super Easy Garlicky Yogurt Sauce
source: Xurxo Martinez
When my doctor said I needed to start eating more dairy products AND lose weight, I was stymied. Since I can’t stand the taste of plain milk and cheese is too high in fat, how was I going to follow his orders?
Out came the cookbooks and a solution soon emerged – yogurt sauce.
Yogurt sauce tastes delicious, is easy to throw together and makes a great topping for virtually anything. So far, I’ve stirred the sauce into rice, broccoli and baked potatoes, instead of butter. I’ve been happy with the result every time.
1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1 teaspoon olive oil (optional)
powdered garlic, to taste
salt and pepper, to taste
Combine all ingredients. Warm the sauce very gently, till just hot, and do not allow to boil. Or, skip heating altogether, and just mix into the steaming food. Serve immediately.
What could be easier than that?
