Home Made Garlic Sauce

Been pretty bored at home lately because my previous work place went belly up and have been having a strange craving for garlic sauce, don't ask me why, just go with it!

I think anything home made wins over store bought, so here goes!

  • 2 to 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1.5 cups of olive oil (canola oil will have a nicer colour)
  • 1 juice of a lemon
  • 1 egg white (yes that means no yolk!)
  • Salt to taste

Peel and crush the garlic so it is easy to blitz up and add into a food processor (I'm jobless so I used a blender). Set to medium speed and begin to add in the oil DO NOT GO APE SHIT AND POUR IT ALL IN! Using a tablespoon, alternate slowly between the lemon juice and the oil, this takes time rushing it will lead to nothing but a horrible looking sauce. Once a white mixture starts to appear, add in the egg white and keep alternating between the oil and lemon juice, as it thickens up add in salt and stop the process to have a quick taste. Add more salt if required, then continue blitzing it up till the sauce is nice and thick. The entire blitzing process should take around 10 minutes.

Serves: Alot?
Time: 15 minutes
Cost: < $5
