whipped egg white, lemon, and roasted garlic dipping sauce? Any idea what this mystery dish might be?

A friend was telling me about a delicious Mediterranean dipping sauce of whipped egg whites emulsified with lemon and roasted garlic. She said it tasted very light. I tired looking online and found Lebanese mayonnaise that sounds similar, but it uses 2 cups of oil, which is not what I would call "light." Anyone heard of a different version of this dish?

I think that's exactly what it is. Because it includes just the egg white, it appears to be lighter in texture.

I meant to add that when I've had it at my favorite Lebanese restaurant, it was definitely made with roasted garlic.

Yes....called Toum, and also made without egg white.

This is Toum or like others have said, garlic sauce from the Middle East! Chefindisguise.com has a great and light version! See link below!

Bonnie Benwick has a Toum how-to in the Washington Post. She also talked about it on The Splendid Table.

I can imagine that this Whipper Goat's Cheese with Garlic Confit Recipe http://garlicmatters.com... will produce a similar texture and flavor.
