  1. One flavor enhancer…period (well sort of). REDUCTION. Take that great broth and reduce it down to next to nothing…great on anything! Also, you forgot Braggs Aminos! Coconut aminos good if you want a sweet sauce! Thank you for all the articles you write!

I roast the garlic in an oven safe dish or pan (Pyrex, stainless, Corningware etc… You can cover it if you want but you really don’t have to. Just turn the oven temp down a bit. It’s actually more roasted this way than steamed,
