Toum Garlic Sauce
Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

Toum or Toumya is a garlic sauce as prepared in Syria, the Levant, and Egypt similar to the European aioli. It contains garlic, salt, olive oil or vegetable oil, and lemon juice crushed using a wooden mortar and pestle. There is also a variation popular in many villages, such as Zgharta, where mint is added, called “Zeit and Toum” (oil and garlic).

Toum is used as a dip, especially with French fries and chicken, and in Levantine sandwiches, especially chicken ones.
