    Can’t imagine a not putting garlic in any of our food with the exception of most cakes. Do you think the first sauce would work well with vegetable stock? I don’t eat meat.

    Mari I will always join in your linky if I remember 😉
    BlueBearWood – yes it’s working with vegetable as well. The beef stock is just because it is good with steaks.I like it the sauce with grilled mushrooms even or roasted/grilled vegetables. Even boiled or baked potatoes. Is just yummy!
