This is by far the healthiest and tastiest aioli you will lay your taste buds on! I mean how can you go wrong with anything avocado? It serves as an amazing base to many dishes, including sweet ones such as my Avocado Chocolate Pudding. And because avocados have a neutral profile, they thicken your desired sauces and meals perfectly without overdoing it, lending a nice, smooth, and creamy texture. The best part of this though – as if it could get any better – it literally takes minutes to prepare and serve!
Vegan Avocado Aioli Yields: ~ 1 1/2 cups
1 large avocado, pitted and halved
Juice of 1/2 lemon (~ 1 1/2Tbsp)
2 Tbsp Earth Island Veganaise (or vegan mayonnaise of choice)
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove
1/2 Tsp sea salt
1. Wash and cut avocado in half, remove pit and peel skin.
2. Add avocado and lemon juice to blender and turn on high speed until smooth.
3. Add remaining ingredients to blender: Veganaise, oil, garlic clove, and 1/4 tsp salt. Continue blending on high speed for approximately 30 seconds to 1 minute, until aioli is emulsified and is silky smooth in texture.
4. Taste aioli and if more salt is desired, add remaining 1/4 tsp.
You’re all done!
Serve with anything except dessert ;) . I use it when making sandwiches, as dip for my veggies, as a sauce for chicken and potatoes, and even as an occasional dressing for my salad! It tastes great, is full of healthy fats from the avocado, and amazing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties from the garlic.
Bon appétit! xo
