Garlic Sauce

This thick and creamy garlic sauce recipe is dairy free and like no other. It packs a punch and goes with chicken, beef, lamb, prawns, fish or falafel. Simple and quick to make this is a popular traditional Lebanese Toum sauce (garlic sauce). Easy to make and keeps well in the fridge.



  • 1 head of garlic peeled
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice


  1. Finely mince garlic cloves with a garlic press or in a blender.
  2. Use a spatula to scrape the minced garlic from the sides of the blender.
  3. In the blender or food processor add garlic and egg white and add 1 teaspoon of oil at a time until oil is used or the sauce stops thickening.
  4. Sauce will thicken to a mayonnaise consistency.
  5. Add lemon juice while the blender is on.
  6. Use as an accompaniment to chicken and lamb or use during cooking to coat roast chicken and meat.
