Goat cheese sauce (and drizzled things)

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.

Here, the goat cheese sauce is served over chicken, roasted asparagus and potatoes. It was the perfect meal for one. With leftovers for lunch. So, for two, then.

You’ll need:

  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 – 2 T olive oil
  • 3/4 – 1 cup white wine
  • 4 oz goat cheese

Get cooking:

  1. 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.
  2. Add wine to pan, scraping any bottom bits of shallot/garlic, until wine reduces by 1/2 (about 5 minutes).
  3. Crumble in goat cheese and stir continuously until melted into sauce (there will still be little clumps, that’s fine).
  4. 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.
