Toum: A Lebanese Garlic Sauce

If you love garlic, you’ll love toum: a Lebanese garlic sauce. It’s a dip, a condiment, a sauce, and it’s very garlic. I used to order it with my shish taouk asking for a “double order of the garlic sauce!” But seriously, when I finally put my hands on homemade toum, I was hooked. I usually have a tub of the thing sitting in my fridge, and I use it with whatever I feel like, almost even on toast! Just try it, you garlic-addict!

Toum: A Lebanese Garlic Sauce

  • Author: Karine K
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 8 servings 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 cup garlic cloves, peeled and trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/2 cup grapeseed oil
  • Juice of 1 juicy lemon
  • 56 tablespoons ice water

Instructions

In a food processor, pulse garlic and salt until you get a smooth paste, scraping the sides of the bowl, occasionally. While the food processor is running, add the lemon juice. Pulse until fluffy. With the processor running, add 1/4 cup of the oil, in a thin and slow stream. Then, add 1 tablespoon of the ice water. Scrape the sides of the processor bowl and continue with another 1/4 cup of the oil. After each addition of 1/4 cup of oil, add 1 tablespoon of the ice water. Continue alternating until all the oil is used. Taste, adjust for sea salt, if necessary. You should have a light and fluffy sauce. The key is to add the oil very, very slowly.

Super-Quick Broccoli Gratin
  • Author: Karine K
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 large head of broccoli (about 22 1/2 lbs), trimmed and cut into florets*
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 cup vegan mayo
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • Sea salt and pepper

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375˚F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, toss the broccoli fleurets, the olive oil, and the sea salt and pepper (to taste). Spread the florets in one layer on the prepared baking sheet. Set aside.

In a small bowl, mix the mayo with the mustard. Drop dollops of sauce over the broccoli florets, so that they all benefit from the sauce. Pop in the oven and roast for 15-20 minutes, until the broccoli is tender, but still crisp, and a nice golden char starts to appear on the sauce. Bon appétit!

Notes

*You may also use cauliflower for outstanding results.
