Garlic sauce


2 tablespoons of garlic chopped fine

1 tablespoon butter

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 teaspoon of all corn flour

2 tablespoons of soya sauce

2 teaspoons of vegan worchester sauce ( Granovita). Or use 2 tablespoons Balsamic vinegar with 1 teaspoon sugar salt and pepper to taste.

For the garlic butter sauce:

Heat a pan and add the oil with the butter. Now add the garlic and sauté for a bit. To this add a glass of water and simmer for a minute or two. Then add a slurry of cornflour and water and mix well. Now add soya and woschester sauce and let it boil till it thickens a little bit.

Extra tips: Make sure the metal platter is smoking hot before you arrange the veggies. To make the corn starch slurry, always mix corn flour with cold water.
