This easy garlic aioli is the perfect spread to take your sandwiches to the next level! It’s made with just 4 simple ingredients and ready in about 5 minutes.


  • 1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 2 large garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Prepare garlic paste: Peel and finely mince the garlic. Sprinkle the garlic with a bit of salt and then using your knife, gather the garlic together into a pile. Holding the blunt side of your knife with both hands at a slight angle, drag the sharp side of the blade across the garlic, so that it presses and flattens the garlic. Work the garlic back into a pile and repeat the process for about 1-2 minutes, or until you’ll have a thick and smooth paste. You can also do this with a mortar and pestle instead if you have one.

  2. Transfer the garlic into a medium-sized bowl along with the remaining ingredients and mix until uniform.
  3. Adjust seasonings to taste and enjoy!
