Aioli is a garlic mayonnaise that can be used as a vegetable dip or sandwich spread.
- 6 large egg yolks
- ½ cup (120 ml) Fresh Lemon Juice
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt, optional
- 1/4 teaspoons ground white pepper
- 6 medium garlic cloves, peeled
- 3 cups (700 ml) light olive oil
- Place egg yolks, lemon juice, salt and pepper into the Vitamix container and secure lid.
- Start the machine on its lowest speed and increase speed to Variable 8.
- While machine is running, remove the lid plug and drop in garlic cloves through opening.
- Blend for 10 seconds, then reduce speed to Variable 6.
- With the machine still running, slowly pour oil in a thin stream though the lid plug opening until emulsified.
- Refrigerate in an airtight container.
The key to Aioli is to make sure the eggs and lemon mixture covers the blades.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TheFrancophileFoodie from * To the people saying their Aioli turned out runny: You ought to educate yourselves on the science of emulsification. One egg yolk is only capable of emulsifying a certain quantity of oil. If your sauce was too runny you either: A.) Added too much oil B.) Added oil too quickly C.) Did not follow instructions properly or forgot a key ingredient such as acid (lemon juice, vinegar, etc.) If you have issues with this recipe I recommend researching emulsified sauces to gain a better understanding of the ingredient functions. If you understand the science you will understand the variability that comes with emulsions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JensOMatic from An Aioli delight! The recipe is a great base recipe and if you follow it, will produce a great aioli. Now, if you tinker with the ingredients, it may not go so well unless you understand emulsification. The ratio of egg yolk to oil is critical. I have also added lime for a Lime Aioli (add 1 TBSP to egg yolks, before oil) and I have added paprika and cayenne for a blackened redfish sauce. Excellent. If you use inferior ingredients (like garlic powder instead of garlic) then you should expect inferior results.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BKHSRQ from Easy peasy! Other than decreasing the amount of olive oil by a smidge, I followed the recipe exactly and had aioli. When I went to spoon it out of the vitamix, I saw there was a bit of unemulsified oil left so I turned it on again, starting at 1 and gradually increasing to 6 and voila...perfection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JJOtt from Easy and delicious I cut the recipe to two egg yolks and eyeballed the rest; it came out great. I thought it was going to be too thin but I just let it run until it thickened. This will be a great base sauce with other flavors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tishihtzu from Worked for me... I needed something quick and this did the job. I did not have any garlic cloves on me so I used 20 g of minced garlic instead. The aioli came out the right texture (like mayonnaise); however, not enough garlic taste for my preference to earn the 5th star. I will definitely try again with real garlic!
