Lemony Garlic Aioli

“I could talk food all day.  I love good food.” – Tom Brady

Bring some flair to your next batch of homemade fries with this basic aioli sauce. We like to toss the garlic in the oven at the same time as the fries, as it emerges with a sweet mild flavour and a beautiful pate-like consistency.

Serves 3-4

1 head of garlic, top sliced off
1 tsp olive oil
1 cup full fat yoghurt
2 tbsp mayonnaise
½ lemon, squeezed
kosher salt and pepper

Heat oven to 425 F.  Place the garlic on a sheet of aluminum foil.  Sprinkle with salt and olive oil.  Wrap the foil around the garlic to make a bundle.  Place in the middle rack of the oven for approximately 45 minutes.

Remove the garlic bundle and use tongs to spread the foil.  The garlic should appear brown and will be very soft.  Using the tip of a knife or small tongs, gently lift each garlic clove out of its peel and place in a medium-sized mixing bowl.  Using a fork, mash the garlic.  Set the bowl aside to allow the garlic to cool completely.

Once cooled, add the remaining ingredients.  Season to taste.
