What is aioli?

Alioli is a creamy garlic sauce made with garlic, salt, olive oil and sometimes an egg. It is popular in Mediterranean coast cuisines such as Provence, France and Catalonia in Spain.

In our recipe we add eggs, which adds extra richness. It has an intense flavor thanks to the extra virgin olive oil and raw garlic. Below we have compiled some tips to help you create the aioli of your dreams. come on okay

How to make aioli from scratch

There are many reduced aioli recipes online that use mayonnaise as the base and turn it into flavored mayonnaise. If that’s what you’re looking for, you’ve come to the right place. Scroll down a little and you’ll find our quick aioli shortcut.

However, what I do want to talk about is how to make aioli from scratch. It’s absolutely delicious (better than flavored mayonnaise) and it’s easy! If you’ve seen our Homemade Mayonnaise Recipe, you’ll see that the method for this recipe isn’t that different. We combine the eggs with lemon juice, salt and oil.

As with our mayonnaise recipe, we use a whole egg. It’s common to see aioli made with just one yolk, but we’ve found adding a whole egg makes this recipe more foolproof, and we love the results. In addition to the whole egg, a yolk is added for added richness.

Then we use this wealth and consume a lot of oil. Traditionally, olive oil is used to make aioli. We use olive oil, but we often cut it with something neutral oil like sunflower or grapeseed oil.

Olive oil can be quite intense, and depending on the brand of oil, the flavor of the olive oil can overwhelm the rest of the ingredients. Cutting some of this olive oil with a more neutral oil will make the alioli more balanced.

Now that you have an amazing bottle of light, fruity olive oil in your kitchen, you can use 100% olive oil in our recipe. Our best advice here is to test your olive oil before deciding how much to add. If it has a sharp and bitter taste, we recommend using neutral oil to balance it.

On the other hand, if you have a light, fruity flavor, you may consider using most or all of the olive oil. In our recipe below we ask you to add 3/4 cup oil; it can be 100% olive oil or a blend. It’s entirely up to you. We typically use 1/4 cup neutral oil (I like sunflower or grapeseed oil) and 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil.

A quick note on using raw eggs

Here’s what the CDC suggests you do to reduce the risks of using eggs:

  • Consider buying and using pasteurized eggs
  • Always store eggs in the refrigerator at 4°C (40°F) or below
  • Only buy eggs from stores and vendors who keep them refrigerated.
  • Throw away broken or dirty eggs

Our tips for making Alioli

First of all, if you’re nervous about making aioli, don’t be. It’s quick and easy. Here are some tips :

  1. It is best if all the ingredients are at the same temperature. If you have cold eggs and don’t have time to let them sit on the counter to come to room temperature, place them in a bowl of warm water. Set the bowl aside and you will have the eggs at room temperature in 5 minutes.
  2. Let the garlic, lemon juice, and salt sit together for a few minutes. During this time, the salt will dissolve in the lemon juice, and thanks to this salt, the garlic will be flavored.
  3. Slowly add the oil in small drops until about a quarter of the oil is incorporated. Adding the oil slowly is very important. If you tossed it all in at once, you would have an aioli soup! For a visual on how to add the oil, watch our Homemade Mayonnaise video; the oil is added at 1h30.

Aioli shortcut

We highly recommend making aioli from scratch. However, if you lack the ingredients or don’t have the equipment, here’s a quick garlic mayonnaise that’s still pretty tasty.

Mix 1 cup of mayonnaise with 2-3 finely grated cloves of garlic, a generous pinch of salt, 1-2 teaspoons of fresh lemon juice, and a pinch of ground black pepper. Taste the mayonnaise and adjust the seasoning with more salt or lemon juice.

creamy garlic aioli

This is how we make a creamy and delicious garlic aioli. Using a whole egg instead of a plain yolk makes this homemade aioli recipe practically foolproof and super easy.

We make this recipe using a 12 cup food processor (Brand: Magimix) and it works like a charm. If you have a larger food processor or are concerned that your model’s blade isn’t making enough contact with the ingredients, you can use the smaller bowl that usually comes with food processors. This recipe also works when made with a high power blender. Finally, you can use a blender.

In our recipe below we ask you to add 3/4 cup oil; it can be 100% olive oil or a blend. It’s entirely up to you. We typically use 1/4 cup neutral oil (I like sunflower or grapeseed oil) and 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil. For more information, see our article.

Makes about 1 cup

will need

2 small cloves of garlic

1 teaspoon lemon juice or white wine vinegar, plus more to taste

A pinch of fine sea salt

1 large egg, at room temperature

1 large egg yolk, at room temperature

1/4 cup neutral oil such as sunflower, grapeseed, or vegetable oil

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

freshly ground black pepper, optional

addresses

    Use a micro grater to grate the garlic. If you don’t have a fine grater, finely chop or grind the garlic into a paste.

    In the bowl of a food processor (or blender), combine the garlic, lemon juice (or vinegar), and salt. Let the ingredients sit together for about a minute.

    Add the whole egg and yolk and pulse until combined and fluffy.

    Mix the neutral oil with the olive oil in a measuring cup, this will help you add the oil.

    With the processor running, slowly add the oil in small drops until about a quarter of the oil has been added (this is essential for a good emulsion).

    It may be a little looser if you notice the mixture starting to thicken and emulsify. With the processor on, continue to add the oil slowly, but collect it in a very thin stream and not in drops of oil.

    When the oil is incorporated and the aioli is thick, taste and season with additional lemon juice (or vinegar) and salt. I usually add a few pinches of salt and some lemon juice at the end to bring out the flavor. The aioli is not as thick as store-bought mayonnaise.

    Serve with a pinch of freshly ground black pepper.

Advice from Adam and Joanne

  • Garlic Amount: Two small raw garlic cloves add a strong garlic flavor to this batch of aioli. If you’re sensitive to the taste of raw garlic, reduce it to a single clove or use roasted garlic instead. If you want to increase the amount of garlic, do so.
  • Which oil to use? The olive oil is authentic in this recipe. Olive oil can be quite intense, and depending on the brand of oil, the flavor of the olive oil can overwhelm the rest of the ingredients. Cutting some of this olive oil with a more neutral oil will make the alioli more balanced. The ratio of olive oil to neutral oil is up to you. Our best advice here is to test your olive oil before deciding how much to add. If it has a sharp and bitter taste, we recommend using neutral oil to balance it. In our recipe we ask you to add 3/4 cup oil, it can be 100% olive oil or a mix. It’s entirely up to you. We typically use 1/4 cup neutral oil (I like sunflower or grapeseed oil) and 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil.
