Though I know how to cook fairly well, I was having a hard time adjusting to cooking for one. (You’re shocked, I know.) So I broke down and tried one of those meal kit services. Cons: pretty expensive, excessive packaging and the produce quality was laughably bad (especially as ‘fresh’ was in the name). However, I did discover 1. how to cook for one (though current life has pitched that right out the window) and 2. that a delicious sauce dresses up any dinner. This goat cheese sauce is amazing on literally anything – white meat, fish, green veggies, root veggies, bread, rice (if you can find it) – and takes very little effort. We’ll all be cooking from home for a while – might as well fancy it up a bit.
- 1 shallot, minced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 – 2 T olive oil
- 3/4 – 1 cup white wine
- 4 oz goat cheese
- Heat small saute pan over medium heat. Add oil, let heat 30 seconds, then add shallot and garlic. Saute for 2-3 minutes, until both are fragrant.
- Add wine to pan, scraping any bottom bits of shallot/garlic, until wine reduces by 1/2 (about 5 minutes).
- Crumble in goat cheese and stir continuously until melted into sauce (there will still be little clumps, that’s fine).
- Drizzle over anything! (Ok, ice cream would be weird, but you get the idea.) Note: if what you’re drizzling over isn’t seasoned, you might want to add a bit of salt and pepper to this.
