Aioli (Garlic Mayonnaise)

Prep Time15 mins
Total Time15 mins
Author: Karon


  • 2 fresh egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • approx 100ml/3 1/2 fl oz olive oil


  • Crack the eggs and save the whites for another use, you only want the yolks here.
  • Whizz the yolks in food processor and add the lemon juice.
  • Crush the garlic clove and add to the mix.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Now start VERY SLOWLY dripping in the olive oil as the machine whizzes everything up. This is an excercise in patience and a steady hand but keep up the slow pace with the oil.
  • When it all comes together and thickens you are ready to taste and adjust seasoning.
  • Spoon into a bowl and enjoy!
  • Best used right away but will keep overnight in the fridge.
