This is one of the richest garlic dishes one can ever find! It is however a smooth balanced garlic taste, and not biting.
Ingredients (4 servings)
1 lb general purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon of yeast
2-3 teaspoons of salt
4 medium sized Potatoes, peeled and cut into small cubes of 2 inches
10-15 garlic cloves, crushed
1/3 to 1/2 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup of olive oil
Dough Preparation and Cooking Method
Garlic Sauce Preparation Method
In a food processor blend the garlic with 2/3 teaspoon of salt, and then slowly add 1 cup of olive oil over a period of 5 minutes as it blends away. You don’t need to get the thick consistency of the traditional “Garlic Dip” here, so no need to spend tons of time on it but at the same time don’t dump the oil all at once in the food processor.
Alternatively, if you happen to have our “Lebanese Garlic Dip” from our previous recipe handy, you could mix 4-5 table spoons with the hot dough, let rest for 3-4 minutes and then add 1/3 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice and 1/3 cup of olive oil, mix well and serve hot.
Serving and Tips
When ready to serve, place the hot noodles in your serving bowl along with the potatoes. Add the garlic sauce, mix and let rest for 3-4 minutes so the heat from the noodles cooks the garlic a bit. Then add 1/3 cup of lemon juice, mix well and serve. You may need to adjust the salt. Serve hot.
