Goat cheese, as you might expect, comes from goat’s milk. The flavor is a little tangier than regular milk, and it has a softer texture. If you are sensitive to cow’s milk, you’ll still likely have some issues with goat cheese to a lesser extent.
There are various ways to use this garlic goat cheese sauce recipe, especially since it is somewhat like a comfit. Comfit is anything slow-cooked in oil. Use it on rice, as part of a salad dressing, as a unique marinade or sandwich condiment, tossed with pasta, and as a dip! Don’t be afraid to get creative.
