Toum is a garlic and lemon based "dressing" used in Middle Eastern cooking. White, creamy and screams of garlic! Great on Middle Eastern foods, as a salad dressing, as a finish for grilled meats, or just as a topping for pita bread. (For those who have been there, this is the same as the process I published on wikihow - using it to "get my feet wet" on Instructables :o)

Step 1: Get your gear

You'll need:

A food processor
Measuring cups
Measuring spoons
Rubber scraper

1/2 c peeled garlic cloves, head "nub" removed
1 t salt
1/4 c lemon juice
2 c oil, canola or olive oil preferred
A pinch or two of cayenne pepper
<p>I love it, good Ible and I love the one liners :) </p>
Funny stuff! Looks great :D
