    Can't help you with a sauce, but I have a garlic lovers grinder pot from Tesco's which I add to EVERYTHING as I too am slightly addicted to the garlic!

    Maybe you could make your own by adding it to low fat yog or fromage frais?

    Tonight I won the SW sauces book in the raffle! The nearest thing I can find is Garlic and mushroom but I'm guessing you could adapt it. Here goes....

    Garlic and Mushroom sauce

    Serves 4
    1/2 Syn per serving on Green and Original

    10 garlic cloves, unpeeled
    Fry light
    340g/12oz button mushrooms, chopped
    113ml/4 fl oz stock made with Chicken Bovril
    4 tbsp buttermilk
    4 tbsp freshly chopped parsley

    Preheat the oven to 180 degrees/Gas mark 4. Place the garlic on a baking sheet, spray with Fry light and bake for 15 minutes or until softened. Remove from the oven and gently squeeze the cloves out of their papery skins into a bowl.

    Heat a pan sprayed with Fry light, add the mushrooms and fry until tender. Stir in the chicken stock, bring to the boil and cook for 1-2 minutes.

    Allow to cool a little, transfer to a food processor along with the garlic, buttermilk and parsley and blend until nearly smooth. Return to the pan and reheat gently before serving.

    TA DA!!

    That does sound nice, let me know if its worth trying. I love garlic too, I have it on toast in the morning instead of butter. I must stink when I get to work!

    tried........ish

    Well i havent made a sauce but i did stuff a chicken breast with 2 babybel light and chopped garlic then covered it in bacon OMG soooooooooooo nice:D.

    I know this must sound really silly but im a part time veggy, im not keen on the flavour of meat by itself,
    I dont eat alot of meat so when i do it needs to be flavoured strongly!.....apart from kebabs, shepards pie, pork pie, chicken and mushroom pie! haha if you get my drift!
    All bloody fatty food grr:mad:!
