homemade aioli

Called "the butter of Provence," aioli is an easy, dairy-free way to add richness and flavor to your dishes. Use is as an ingredient in sides like Celery Root Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes, or as a sauce in mains like our Halibut and Salmon Gefilte Fish or our Artichoke Fritters.

Aioli can be stored, covered in the refrigerator for 5 days. You can whisk aioli together by hand, or easily whip it up in a food processor or blender.
