So we’re moving. Windows are being fitting, kitchen is being designed. I can finally unbox my Christmas Kenwood. Problem is cooking has been hard. I’ve deviated from the Super Saturday list, so shameful. Everything has needed to be easy this week. I’m also away this weekend. Sorry.
Tonight we had fish and chips but I wanted something extra. There are four things I love in food terms – cheese being the first which you might know by now. The others are salt, mayo and garlic. Yes I know the salt one is terrible but I can’t help it, it goes on everything I eat. However not many recipes exist with salt as the main ingredient so garlic mayo it is. Or Aioli to be precise.
3 egg yolks
4 garlic cloves
juice of 1/2 lemon
salt and pepper
150ml extra virgin olive oil
mustard powder (optional)
Now this recipe couldn’t be easier. It puts all the easy recipes so far to shame.
1. Blend egg yolks, garlic, lemon and salt&pepper in a food processor
2. Pour in the oil in a steady stream while still blending until thick and creamy
3. Serve with baguettes (or chips.)
And that’s it, you can add the mustard and/or saffron to vary the flavour if you like. I guess you could add other herbs or spices to it as well for different effects. I’m not sure how long this would keep though but definitely a fridge dweller.
