Recipe Notes

*Since there is very little fat in this recipe, the spice of the garlic definitely has a kick if you add too much. If you’re unsure of how much to add, I would start with less, then taste a spoonful of the sauce before adding more. The kick is in the aftertaste, so give it a few seconds after trying it before adding more.
