This Lemon Roasted Garlic Sauce is so simple with only two ingredients. I made it to add depth to an upcoming vegan ‘chicken’ shwarma recipe but it’s really fantastic for all sorts of dishes. Add a bit of salt and this creamy oil-free sauce is super tasty for making garlic bread/toast, mixed into pasta or added into pizza sauce too!

Lemon Roasted Garlic Sauce
Lemon Roasted Garlic Sauce is awesome to have on hand for making garlic bread or toast, mixed into pasta, or added to pizza sauce. Use it in my vegan shwarma recipe (coming soon!) for added depth in place of fresh garlic. With only two ingredients, it's super simple to make.
