Garlic Dip

Garlic is one of the main ingredients in our kitchen,  we use it in a variety of recipes. And I think it is Chicken’s best friend. And the garlic dip is a must have  in any fridge especially to make those delicious sandwiches with boiled chicken and garlic dip, topped with pickles and then toasted.. It is simply delicious. But to make it properly you should have a food processor. I remember when I was in the States in 1990 with my husband and children, I wanted to make this garlic dip but didn’t have  a food processor at home, so I made it by hand using the pestle and mortar, and it took me about half an hour or more to finish it. The result was ok, but not as good as the one made with food processor. I also remember the pain I had  in my hand next day:).


  • 25-30 cloves of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice


  • Place the garlic with salt in a food processor, use the metal blade and mix for about 2 minutes, taking care of pushing the sides always to the bottom to mix well
  • Add the oil in thin stream mixing always until it forms a white smooth paste
  • At the end add the lemon juice. You can keep in the fridge for one month



  1. Just pure garlic–sounds delicious! I just pulled out my mortar & pestle after finding mold all over my chopper attachment–I’ve been resolving to use it more so maybe it was a good thing, but I will stick with the food processor for this, thanks!

  2. There’s so many things this would be good on! And keep the vampires away, to boot! 🙂

  3. I suggest you use the food processor for this recipe, or you will feel pain in your hand like I did.:)

    The Hubby loves this dip. I will have to try your recipe!

  5. I’ll be up all night but I’ll have to do it. I love garlic – it has issues with me, however.

  6. Nina, I love this one. I can’t wait to try it! I see a smear of this on top of fish!!!
