My wife is a vegetarian and holiday dinner’s usually suck for her. Her sister in-law isn’t the wisest and as a result she ends up with fucking mashed potatoes, corn and shitty mushroom gravy out of a can. This year we didn’t want to visit anyone for this bullshit jesus day(I’m trying to get that shit out of my life completely) instead we stayed home and I decided to boss up with a vegetarian meal. In doing so I found a recipe for some roasted garlic gravy and tried it. I was kind of amazed at myself at how well this turned out.
take some garlic cloves, drizzle with olive oil and double wrap tightly in foil and roast at 400 for 45 minutes
unwrap that shit
put in bowl and puree
melt 5 tablespoons of butter, then take the garlic puree and 1/3 cup of flour and mix that shit. Then slowly add vegetable stock and wisk
simmer for 3 minutes.
These Sherry Vinegar and Molasses Glazed Carrots were the knock too. I thought they might be hella sweet, especially considering I used maple syrup instead of molasses but man these went hard.
I also made some wild rice stuffing and salmon over spinache. Thank god my wife eats fish, otherwise I’d be fucked at home.
