Lemon Garlic Aioli

By Esther Boateng

Aioli is a condiment very similar to mayonnaise. This basic aioli recipe has 5 main ingredients: eggs, oil, lemon, garlic, and salt. Aioli is incredibly easy to make; it takes roughly 20 minutes, and it lasts up to a week if stored in an airtight container in the fridge.

A small amount of patience, and creativity is all you need to make a wonderfully smooth, thick and creamy aioli. The key is to pour the oil into the egg mixture very slowly, while gently whisking, which will give your aioli a relatively thick custard-like consistency. For added health and flavor benefits, add a pinch of Dr. Cowan’s Garden Ashitaba or Summer Savory Powder, or herbs such as tarragon, or parsley. Blend these additions into your mixture at the end when you’re satisfied with the consistency.

Ashitaba has a clean, herbaceous, celery-like taste with warm, spicy notes, and adds a refreshing twist to this basic recipe. Also, be mindful that the flavor profile will intensify the longer the aioli sits in the fridge.

This condiment tastes great with eggs, crab cakes, or salads – it goes well with any type of food you enjoy eating, and you’ll also get a good dose of healthy fats.
