  • 6-7 cloves garlic peeled
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 cup of neutral oil canola, vegetable, grapeseed, or similar


  • Add the peeled garlic and the salt to a tall container. Pulse a few times with the immersion blender to break up the garlic and start pureeing it. It won't be completely smooth at this point.
  • Remove the blender and add the rest of the ingredients.
  • Settle the blender squarely on the bottom of your container and start blending. Once the mixture is about ⅔ mixed, slowly pull the blender up while continuing to blend until the mixture comes together fully.


Notes - This garlic dip is inspired by a Lebanese garlic dip called Toum. To peel the garlic place the cloves in a container with a lid and shake for 30 seconds, or smash them on a cutting board to loosen the peel, or twist the clove to loosen the peel.
Substitutions - None that I know of other than varying the oil.
Storage - Stores in the fridge until the best before date of the egg white you used.
