Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 4 garlic cloves crushed - add more or less based your love for garlic
  • 2/3 to ¾ cup of olive oil – can also use light olive oil for a lighter flavor or mix of regular olive oil and avocado oil
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
  • Salt to taste


  • Combine the egg, garlic, some salt and a couple tablespoons of oil in a blender or food processor, pulse until mixed.
  • Continue blending and add the oil slowly until the aioli begins to thicken.
  • Add the lemon juice and additional oil, continue blending until you reach the desired consistency.
  • Taste and add additional salt if needed.
  • Towards the end it should blend very slowly o barely at all – the aioli will also thicken even more when refrigerated.


If the aioli doesn’t start to thicken, after adding oil slowly while blending, one way to attempt to fix it is to add another egg.
