Alles over toum: Libanese knoflooksaus

Fan van aioli? Dan word je vast erg blij van dit feitje. Er bestaat ook een Libanese versie van aioli: toum! En die is zo mogelijk nóg lekkerder (en op de koop toe nog ‘s vegan ook).

Dit is alles wat je wil weten over toum, de Libanese knoflooksaus die je het best kan vergelijken met aioli (maar dan nét weer anders is).

Wat is Toum?

Toum betekent in het Arabisch letterlijk ‘knoflook’. Het is in feite een romige knoflooksaus met een zalvige structuur. Toum is vrij dik, waardoor het ook wel doet denken aan een spread.

Toum wordt gemaakt met vier ingrediënten: knoflook, olie, citroensap en zout. Door ze te mixen als een mayonaise ontstaand een dikke, witte, glanzende massa. Je leest het goed: eieren komen hier niet aan te pas, ideaal voor vegans dus.

The dream guys, the dream..what is yours? A few years ago I would have NEVER thought I would be taking food photos professionally. I mean, who would??😆 I was a teacher turned stay at home mom. My life was hectic but I knew going back to the classroom wasn’t the right thing for me. And just like that, photos began happening (very poor ones), recipes begun being written down, friends began supporting this idea that I would share pieces of my life and culture. It began something real, something special, something attainable. My parents looked at me several times like I was crazy, “what are you doing exactly?”😆 “Are you making money doing this?” Until people started coming to their shop, asking about me, saying they follow me, friends of friends would do the same and I think it hit them, huh, she’s out there doing something😆 (social media is tricky guys ). The biggest honor is to share about my life, my family, the food that accompanies all of that. A BIG part of that began when I started introducing the world to Toum, an emulsified garlic sauce. It’s not something I invented but it is something that I turned into a must have fridge staple for so many, and that is pretty darn cool! So the dream, well, today the dream is attaining a nomination for the @saveurmag Blog Awards, the Oscars of the Food Blogging World. Wouldn’t that be neat? Wouldn’t that be something and truly a dream? Any and every nomination is appreciated and welcomed!!! Without YOU, I wouldn’t be where I am today, so thank you. Happy Sunday, sending you all love! Nominations open until 7/31, link in bio. https://www.saveur.com/2019-blog-awards-nominations/ #cosetteskitchen #toum #lebanesefood #lebanese #culture #livingourbestlife #livingthedream #savuermag #eattheworld #toum #toumislife #garlic . . #thenewhealthy #vegan #glutenfree #simplemeals #lifeandthyme #theartofslowliving #f52grams #beautifulcuisines #foodandwine #bareaders #epicurious #heresmyfood #feedfeed #thekitchn #thatsdarling #storyofmytable #myopenkitchen #foodphotography #feedfeed #thecookfeed

Bij wat eet je toum?

In Libanon wordt het vooral bij (kippen)vlees geserveerd. Smeer het over een stukje gegrilde kip of dip er je kipspiesjes in. Liever veggie? Serveer het dan bij een gegrilde aubergines of een Arabische tajine.

Natuurlijk is de saus al zo lekker van zichzelf dat je er ook gewoon wat Libanees platbrood bij kan serveren – tof voor bij de borrel!

It’s Friday! A long weekend is ahead of us! The sun is shining (for now!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And this is perfect for your long weekend plans: Preserved Lemon and Garlic Chicken platter. The chicken was juicy and tender, loaded with tangy flavor. Loads of fresh veggies and herbs, all wrapped up in a warm pita with a garlic dill yogurt sauce. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m going to share the chicken marinade, with a caveat: I made it with leftover toum I had in the fridge that needed using up…. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Into the blender, one and a half preserved lemons and about a quarter cup-ish of toum. No toum? You can approximate with 8-10 cloves of fresh garlic and a glug or two of olive oil. Blend. Then I added some smoked paprika and oregano. Tasted, and added a couple pinches of salt and another dash of lemon juice. Marinade cubed chicken breast pieces overnight. Grill on skewers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The sauce was a little bit of the same: yogurt, some toum, lemon juice, fresh dill. To taste. Simple, fresh, satisfying. Perfect start to the grilling season 🙌 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (This is pretty loose so if you are wanting to do this and have Qs, I’m happy to answer them!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #grillingseason #eatfresh #homecooking #longweekendplans #recipes #chickenskewers #preservedlemon #toum #healthyfood #healthyeating #eeeats #eattheworld #meditteraneanfood #grilllife #buzzfeast #fbcigers #foodblog #feedfeed @thefeedfeed
