What Is Lemon Garlic Aioli?
Aioli is a Mediterranean sauce which is traditionally made with olive oil and garlic. However, it has become commonplace to make aioli using mayonnaise. Lemon Garlic Aioli is a creamy spread and dip made with vegan mayonnaise, freshly minced garlic, and lemon juice. It can be used as a dip for potato chips, garlic wedge fries, or as a spread for sandwiches and burgers.
Why I Love This Recipe
This recipe takes regular old mayo and elevates into something that you can grab out of your fridge and use in a variety of ways. Let’s be honest though, if you’re a garlic lover (like me) it’s really another way to remake common household staples and turn them into a vehicle for more garlicy goodness.

- Lemon juice
- Black pepper
How To Make Lemon Garlic Aioli
- Mince garlic. You will want to make sure you mince up the garlic very fine so you don’t see large visible chunks of garlic in the aioli. We want a smooth and creamy sauce, not chunky.
- Mix all ingredients together. Add minced garlic, lemon juice, and vegan mayo into a mixing bowl, sprinkle in a pinch of salt and pepper, and whip vigorously with a whisk until smooth and creamy.
- Serve. You can either serve immediately or store let this sauce chill in the refrigerator for a couple hours first; storing it in the fridge allows the flavors of the garlic an lemon juice to become more pronounced.
To make this recipe extra smooth by avoiding any chunks of garlic, you can replace minced garlic with 2 tablespoons of my garlic oil recipe which is essentially olive oil and garlic blended together in a food processor.
This light and fluffy Lemon Garlic Aioli has so many wonderful uses. You can use it as a dip for blistered shishito peppers, garlic wedge fries, or a good bag of potato chips. Use it as a spread for you favorite sandwiches and vegan burgers like my lentil burgers. It can also be used to liven up any veggie platter.
Lemon Garlic Aioli must be refrigerated. Using an airtight container, this sauce will keep for up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
Is Lemon Garlic Aioli Healthy?
Because we are substituting regular mayonnaise with vegan mayo, this recipe is much healthier; regular mayo is made with eggs which are a source of bad cholesterol. Additionally, we are loading this aioli recipe with tons of good garlic which is high in antioxidants. Additionally, studies have shown that garlic is potentially beneficial for combating high blood pressure.(1)
