Roasted Garlic Dipping Sauce with Fresh Ginger and Tamari
Dips & Spreads,
Yields: 1 1/2 cups
Prep time: 15 min
1 large head roasted
3/4 cup extra-virgin
1/2 cup good-quality aged
1 tablespoon tamari sauce or soy sauce
2 teaspoons shredded/grated fresh ginger root
1/2 teaspoon dark sesame oil
How To Roast Garlic
To make the sauce:
Squeeze the cooled roasted garlic cloves out of the skins and place them back in a bowl. Smash the cloves into small bits (leaving some in chunks is perfectly OK). Scrape the
mixture into a bowl and stir in the balsamic vinegar, tamari, ginger, sesame oil, and olive oil.
May be prepared several days or weeks ahead and refrigerated.
Bring the sauce to room temperature before serving. Ladle into shallow platters and surround with chunks or slices of good quality, crusty bread.
Blue cheese variation: Just before serving, gently heat the sauce in a skillet until warmed through. Pour the
mixture into shallow plates and sprinkle with about 8 ounces of crumbled blue cheese (divided among the plates), and gently stir just until some of
the cheese begins to melt slightly and merge with the sauce. Oregon pinot gris is a wonderful complement to the earthy flavors in the blue cheese
Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
