Super Quick Aioli Recipe
This is the cheats guide to homemade quick aioli dip. This garlic sauce recipe is made with mayo and mustard and is perfect for burgers, crab cakes, brussel sprouts. I love to use this recipe if I want a different sauce to use instead of just mayo and this one is perfect to bring flavour in a hurry.
Ingredients in our Aioli recipe
The name Aioli means garlic and oil coming from Mediterranean cuisine. There is always a question behind aioli vs mayo. A traditional recipe for aioli would contain only those two ingredients; garlic and oil. However, many modern recipes use eggs as a variation which makes the aioli similar to mayonnaise.
For this cheats version of quick aioli, we are using mayo (your preferred brand, I use hellman’s or homemade mayonnaise if you have). Also adding in mustard, black pepper, salt, minced garlic and olive oil. For the mustard, I use wholegrain however dijon can be used.
Uses for Aioli
If you are like me and love aioli, you will find almost anything goes with it. In the video, I serve it with carrot fries, which is literally chopped carrot fingers roasted. This is really delicious and works will any roasted vegetable like potatoes and brussel sprouts.. There are so many other dishes to serve with aioli. Fries, burgers, crab cakes or use as a dipping sauce with crackers or bread.
Make it Vegan
It is easy to make this recipe vegan by replacing the mayo for a vegan mayonnaise. All other ingredients are vegan including wholegrain mustard.
