Nothing is as versatile as this easy garlic aioli recipe. It goes with artichokes in the summer and fries in the winter. An aioli sauce is an emulsion sauce that is very similar to mayonnaise.
This garlic aioli is as dynamic as is it easy. You can add other ingredients to it, such as crushed olives or even pickles! Feel free to get creative and try out different flavor combinations.
There are two ways to prepare the garlic for this garlic aioli. You can either make it in a confit first – heat the garlic in olive oil over low heat for about 15 minutes or until the garlic is fork tender and can be crushed easily. Another way to prepare the garlic is to roast the entire bulb in the oven for an hour at 350 degrees.
How to Make Garlic Aioli Healthier:
It’s not a secret that aioli isn’t the healthiest of recipes- but to make it a little bit healthier, make your own mayonnaise. This way you know exactly what is going into your aioli and there are fewer preservatives.
What to Serve with this Garlic Aioli:
I really enjoy making this condiment while my healthy zucchini fries are baking in the oven, since the two dishes will compliment each other well.

How to Make Garlic Aioli:
For this aioli, you can make it using a cheater method – by putting mayo directly into the sauce instead of making an emulsion with egg and oil, which is what mayo is made of.
1). Prepare your garlic. Drizzle the garlic with olive oil and roast in the oven wrapped in foil for an hour at 350 degrees until fork tender.
2). Mash your garlic. Add your mayonnaise, lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce. Mix together.
3). Serve immediately or store in the fridge for up to two weeks.
