Garlic lovers listen up. This stuff has your name written all over it. There are not 1, not 2 , not 5, not 6 but 8 cloves of garlic in this dip. Oh and potato lovers listen up too because I’ve got a little surprise for you. There are potatoes in it too. Yep you heard er…read me. Potatoes and garlic. Really how could you go wrong?
I recently had this at a local Mediterranean restaurant and was mighty surprised by the fact that it is made very similar to aioli. The result is a little thicker almost paste like dip but still full of garlicky goodness. And like aioli this dish is traditionally made with a mortar and pestle but alas, I find that a food processor is much, much easier. But if you need to work on your arm muscles for upcoming swimsuit season, by all means give the traditional route a shot.
