Homemade Lebanese Garlic Sauce

Homemade Lebanese Garlic Sauce

- 1 cup peeled garlic cloves, root trimmed off - 2 tsp sea salt - 4 TBS lemon juice - 3 cups canola oil

Step 1: Add the garlic cloves and salt into a food processor and blend until the garlic is finely ground. Stop the processor, remove the lid, and scrape down the sides.

Step 2: Replace the lid on the processor and continue to blend at high speed. While the food processor is running, slowly drizzle 1 tablespoon of lemon juice into the garlic mixture.

Step 3: Once the lemon juice is totally incorporated, slowly drizzle 1 cup of canola oil into the garlic mixture as the processor runs. Add the canola oil VERY slowly. Adding it all at once will create the wrong texture.

Step 4: Once 1 cup of canola oil is incorporated, repeat the process with lemon juice and oil until both are completely gone. The whole process should take about 10-15 minutes, with each addition being added very slowly.

Step 5: The mixture is ready when all the ingredients are added, the garlic mixture is emulsified, and it is the same texture as mayonnaise.

Step 6: Serve and enjoy!
