Roasted-Garlic Aioli

1 cup

You can make this garlic mayonnaise with a mortar and pestle or a food processor--weve provided directions for each method.


  • Whole Roasted Garlic, 1 bulb, cloves removed

  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt

  • 3 large egg yolks

  • ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • ¾ cup olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice


With a mortar and pestle

  1. In a large mortar, mash garlic cloves and salt with a pestle until combined. Add egg yolks; stir until combined. Stir in mustard. Pour in oil a few drops at a time, stirring until emulsified. Stir in lemon juice.

With a food processor

  1. Process garlic cloves, salt, egg yolks, and mustard until combined, about 5 seconds. With machine running, pour in 1/4 cup oil in a slow, steady stream; process until mixture is slightly thickened, about 10 seconds. With machine still running, pour in remaining 1/2 cup oil in a slow, steady stream; process until mixture is thick. Stir in lemon juice.
