How to make aioli sauce in 6 easy steps
1.Gather your ingredients
You’ll need some garlic cloves, four or five, depending on the size of the cloves. Also, two egg yolks to bind the sauce, a tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice, and one cup of extra virgin olive oil.
You will also need a hand mixer.
2. Prep the garlic
Peel the garlic cloves and then mash them in a garlic press. Add a bit of salt and blend it in.
3. Separate the eggs
Crack the eggs and separate the yolks and the egg whites over a bowl. Keep the egg whites for something tasty, like meringues.
4. Add garlic to yolks
Blend the crushed garlic into the bowl.
5. Mix in the olive oil
Pour the olive oil in the garlic and egg mixture bowl. Make sure to do it gradually and use the hand mixer at the same time to blend the oil in. A creamy sauce should form.
6. Add the lemon juice
Once the sauce is blended, add the lemon juice, while still using the hand mixer. The sauce should turn out smooth and have a consistency very similar to that of mayonnaise. It basically is a mayo with garlic, so basically more flavor for you!
Serve the sauce on a spread, with anything you like! I just love having it with simple fries on a day when comfort food is required.
