Middle Eastern Garlic Sauce

Garlic Sauce recipe

Creamy heaven for meat, fish, sandwiches, and hamburgers. This is available at my favorite Middle Eastern restaurant. I've finally gotten my hands on the recipe! This is divine as a dip with pita bread, but everyone in your group needs to try it. Garlic, garlic, garlic!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Additional Time 5 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 3 small red potatoes, peeled
  • 1 head of garlic peeled and crushed
  • 1 ½ teaspoon of salt
  • ⅓ cup of lemon juice
  • ½ cup canola oil


    1. Fill a large pot halfway with salted water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. Transfer to a bowl and mash until smooth. Allow to cool.
    2. In a blender or food processor, combine the garlic, salt, and lemon juice; drizzle in enough oil to lightly coat the garlic cloves. Over high heat, blend the mixture; slowly pour the remaining oil through the top opening of the blender or food processor until the mixture is smooth. While the blender is still running, add 2 to 3 tablespoons of mashed potatoes at a time to the garlic mixture. Continue to add potatoes until all are incorporated. Transfer the sauce to a bowl and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour to overnight.
