Toum - Middle Eastern Garlic Sauce

Toum - Middle Eastern Garlic Sauce

I have tried a lot of recipes to get this right. Some with potatoes, eggs, or buckets of oil. And they never came out right. This is the ONE!

Sanaa A'esha


  1. 2 Tablespoons Corn Starch
  2. 3/4 Cup Water
  3. 4 Cloves Garlic , finely minced
  4. 1 Teaspoon Lemon juice vinegar /
  5. 4 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  6. Pinch salt of


10 mins
  1. Dissolve cornstarch in water and place it in a pot over medium low heat. Whisk continuously till it bubbles.

  2. Take off heat and let it cool.

  3. In a blender, mix garlic and salt. You might laugh at the 4 cloves, but trust me 4 is plenty. You will regret adding that extra clove. YOU WILL!

  4. Add the starch mix, and lemon.

  5. Blend until the mixture turns white.

  6. Drizzle the oil into the mix as it blends. Keep adding the oil till you get the consistency of mayonnaise.

  7. Now make yourself a juicy shawarma, or grill some meat or just funk up your cucumber sandwich with toum.

  8. And you are vampire-proof.
