What is an aioli?

An aioli (ay-oh-lee) is basically mayonnaise flavored with garlic, salt and pepper. Basically it’s a fancy word for a dip! Most aioili recipes involve making the mayonnaise yourself by beating oil and eggs together. In this instant version, the aioli is made super quick by using store bought olive oil mayonnaise. I’ve made Spicy Corn Aioli before.

With this easy aioli recipe, you can adapt it to make so many varieties. Instead of spinach, roast some garlic with broccoli, cauliflower or carrots. Then process it with the mayonnaise. You can also process the mayonnaise with some canned artichoke hearts or defrosted frozen green peas. These are just a few ideas, but the possibilities are endless!

This Spinach Dip goes well with so many foods. Here are some ideas to serve with this Instant Spinach Aioli.

  1. I love aoli! I have never thought about adding spinach to it before, though! What a great idea – and thanks for all the suggestions on how to use it!

  2. Ooooh, spinach aioli, I’ve never made that one before! This looks like it would be perfect alongside so many summer dishes. I’m going to have to give this a go. Have you made it with any other greens besides spinach? I’m thinking fresh arugula would be nice!

  3. Oooooo what a brilliant idea to add spinach to aioli! I absolutely love aioli and always have a batch in the refrigerator 🙂

  5. I think this is your best picture post till date, Mir. Loved everything about this – the cute ramekin, the healthy spinach Aioli dip and the baby spinach strewn across the pic… awesomely done..
    Do you think Aioli can be made eggless ? Will that make a lot of difference without them ?
