The ingredients you’ll need
- 1 Whole Head of Garlic
- Olive Oil
- Light Mayonnaise
- Lemon Juice
- Dried Thyme Leaves
- Salt & Pepper
- Roasted Garlic - possibly one of my favourite ingredients of all time. I love it so much I even made a tutorial post on how to make roasted garlic (the easy, non-messy way)!
- Mayonnaise - any mayonnaise can be used, light mayo is just my personal preference.
How to make the aioli
Preheat the oven to 350°F and cut a square 8 x 8 piece of aluminum foil. Then peel and place the garlic cloves in the middle of the piece of aluminum foil. You can cut each clove in half if you prefer.
Pour the olive oil overtop of the garlic cloves and season generously with salt and pepper.
Gather the corners of the foil and bunch them together creating a little package. Place on a baking sheet or in an oven safe dish and bake for 20-25 minutes until the garlic is soft and golden brown.
When the garlic has finished roasting, set it aside and let it cool slightly.
Open the cooled garlic package and transfer the roasted garlic cloves into a small ramekin. Using the backside of a fork, smash the garlic cloves into a paste.
In a small mixing bowl add the mayonnaise, lemon juice, thyme leaves, roasted garlic and a generous pinch of salt, then stir well to combine.
Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Then use it on EVERYTHING!!!
Seriously, this roasted garlic and thyme aioli will send any burger soaring to new heights.
