Garlic Sauce

This garlic sauce was awesome.  The boys literally gobbled it up!  It's slightly adapted from Mel Joulwan's.  I recommend if you have a Vitamix you just commit and make a double-batch...basically uses up a bundle of green onions and purees better :)

Garlic Sauce

2 cloves garlic
1/3 c light oil (olive or avocado)
2-3 green onions
3 T lime juice
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp salt

Puree the hell out of this in your blender/miniature food processor.  Enjoy!

Chicken Adobo

I've made this off and on over the last couple of years and remembered I didn't want to lose the recipe.  I got it from What the Fork blog.

Chicken Adobo
3-4 lbs chicken drumsticks
1/2 c soy sauce
3/4 c white vinegar
3 cloves garlic, crushed
2 bay leaves
1 T whole peppercorns

  1. Place chicken, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, bay leaves and peppercorns in a large pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Turn the chicken periodically in the cooking liquid.
  2. Remove the chicken from the pot and grill or broil for about 5 minutes.
  3. While the chicken is finishing cooking, continue boiling the sauce until it reduces by almost half. Place the cooked chicken on a platter, strain the sauce and pour over the chicken.
