TRUFFLE AIOLI

What is Aioli?

Aioli (often misspelled as aioli) is seasoned mayonnaise. But non-mayo lovers, don’t fret! I don’t like mayonnaise, but love aioli! How can that be? Did you know mayo makes the best base for a lot of sauces and dips you love?

How to Use Truffle Aioli

Truffle Aioli (aka truffle mayonnaise) can enhance so many dishes. Some of my favorite things to include Truffle Mayo on are:

Truffles are a rare, aromatic fungi that grow only in few soil and climate conditions. They grow underground alongside the roots of certain trees. Because of their unique growing conditions they’re considered a delicacy. Truffles have an insanely good flavor that makes them great to top pasta, fondue, infuse into oils, butters, aiolis and more.

What Kind of Truffle Oil to Use to Make Truffle Aioli

White and black truffle oil are interchangeable, so it’s completely up to you! The difference is subtle, but black truffles (frequently grown in France) tend to offer more of an earthy flavor and aroma. White truffles, often grown in Italy, are considered more delicate and have a garlic aroma.

Where to Purchase Truffle Oil

If your local grocer doesn’t carry it, you can find it in specialty food stores, Whole Foods, Williams Sonoma and of course, Amazon.

How to Make Truffle Mayo

It’s so easy! We’re skipping a step since we’re not making our own mayo with egg yolks. This Truffle Aioli is also made with sour cream, truffle oil, minced garlic, pepper, lemon juice, sea salt and pepper. White pepper helps you maintain a smooth, creamy color, but you can substitute black pepper, if needed.

You can use your food processor to make it, but I just whip it up in a mixing bowl and combine until smooth.

How to Store Aioli

Store Truffle Aioli refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
