Recipe Now that you have lined up all your ingredients let's get down to making this recipe. So, there are two ways you can make Aioli, either using a blender or by hand. The steps that you need to follow to make the delicious Basil Aioli are:

    Basil Aioli in Blender

    • Take out your blender and add in your Egg, Garlic, Lemon juice, Basil, and salt.
    • Blend all these until combined, and thick paste forms.
    • Once done, add in your oil little by little until combined. The process is the emulsification of oil into the sauce to give it the required texture.
    • Voila! Your Basil Aioli is ready to serve.

    Basil Aioli by Hand

      It's totally fine if you do not have a blender at home. You can always make it in a bowl manually, and it turns out to be equally delicious. Follow the steps below to make Basil Aioli manually:

      • Take your minced Garlic and mash it to become lightly paste-like with your knife, and add it to a bowl.
      • Add your salt to the Garlic paste.
      • In another bowl, mix Egg yolk, Lemon Juice, and mustard.
      • Once mixed, start adding in Oil little by little and keep on mixing to emulsify the sauce.
      • When the oil is combined properly, you may now add in your mashed Garlic and season with Salt and Pepper.
      • If your sauce is very much on the thicker side, you may add in a few drops of water to get to your likable consistency.
      • You have yourself some delicious Aioli to enjoy with your meal.
