Roasted Garlic Aioli with a Twist

Andy Anderson !


I posted another recipe on creating a garlic aioli, but this one is a bit different… it taste brilliant, you probably have the ingredients on hand, and it’s a snap to make.

The twist on this recipe is that we’re not creating an oil-based emulsion from scratch… we’re going to use a premade mayonnaise. In addition, we’re going to bake the garlic to give the aioli a roasted, mellow taste, and kick it up with a bit of Sriricha pepper sauce.

This recipe goes great on sandwiches in place of a regular mayonnaise.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
