Toum Recipe
Toum is a Lebanese garlic sauce with a creamy, fluffy consistency that’s a perfect addition to grilled meats and veggies alike. It comes together in under 10 minutes and is made with just a handful of ingredients, including garlic, oil, lemon juice and salt.

  • 12 tsp coarse sea salt

  • 34 cup avocado oil

  • 1 large pasteurized egg white

  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

  • Step 1

    Add garlic and salt to a dry food processor or high powered blender. Blend until garlic is well-chopped.

  • Step 2

    Add about 1-2 tablespoons oil until the mixture has formed a paste-like texture.

  • Step 3

    Keep the machine running and add the egg white until the mixture is frothy and white.

  • Step 4

    Let the machine keep running and slowly drizzle in the remaining oil (a thin thread-like stream).
