  • 2 fresh egg yolks
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 100 ml 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!


This aioli will keep covered in the fridge for up to 3 days but will get stronger as it ages.
Serve this with seafood, in a potato salad, with burgers and on sandwiches, as egg mayonnaise and lots more.
If the aioli splits add another egg yolk to the mixture and slowly drip in more oil.
