  • 1 1/2 teaspoon finely minced garlic

  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dried tarragon
  • 1 cup plain fresh yogurt, recipe follows
Fresh Yogurt:
  • 1 quart 2-percent milk
  • 1/2 cup powdered milk
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt, room temperature

Directions

Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat, and saute the onion and garlic until translucent. Stir 2 tablespoons cornstarch into 2 tablespoons chicken stock to make a slurry. Add the remaining chicken stock to the onion/garlic mixture and bring to simmer. Add the slurry and bring to boil. When the mixture comes to a boil, remove from the heat.
