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, but 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!

If you make this recipe, I’d love to see it. Please tag @LivityGardens on Instagram and use the hashtag #LivityGardens.

Try it with this Lion’s Mane or Oyster Mushroom Shawarma or this Cauliflower Shawarma.
