VEGAN GARLIC AIOLI
A creamy sauce or dressing is one of the most sought-after recipes in the plant-based cooking community. For the most part, though, it isn’t that difficult to do so. You’ll never be at a loss for a creamy, flavorful condiment when you have this vegan garlic aioli in your arsenal!
VEGAN AND MEAT LOVERS CAN BOTH USE THIS SAUCE.
Everything tastes better with this vegan garlic aioli. Period.
You may use it on various dishes, from salads to potatoes to rice bowls to steaks and chicken. Although it is a vegan recipe, it goes nicely with just about everything you want to give a rich, garlicky kick.
Even my mother, who is notoriously difficult to please, and the rest of my family, who aren’t vegans, approved wholeheartedly! An excellent alternative if you’re not vegan but want to avoid the eggs or dairy in other creamy sauces or mayonnaise.
On plant-based days, I like it best on roasted sweet potatoes…
Or, if I’m feeling frisky on the weekends, a chicken finger!
That’s a lot of flexibility.
SILKEN TOFU IS THE SECRET INGREDIENT.
Silken tofu is required in this recipe. To make silky sauces (or pie fillings! ), the high moisture content and soft pillowy texture combine to create an ideal blending medium.
However, soft tofu can be used in its place if silken tofu cannot be located. Make sure to combine it thoroughly before serving. In the end, it isn’t necessary to proceed any further.
If you think you’ve exhausted your options in the refrigerated department of the shop, don’t forget to look in the pantry, where you may find shelf-stable boxes of silken tofu!
- 14 oz. of silken tofu(1 block, about 400g)
- 4 cloves garlic
- 1 tbsp. of apple cider vinegar (15 ml)
- 1/4-1/2 tsp. of cayenne pepper (to taste)
- 1-1 1/2 tsp. of salt (to taste)
- 1/4 cup of neutral flavored oil
- A food processor can combine the tofu with the other ingredients. Pour in 1/4 cup of oil in a slow stream while blending until the sauce is light and airy.
- Refrigerate any remaining food in an airtight container for up to a week. When handling, always use a clean utensil.
