Spanish Homemade Aioli Recipe

Aioli has become one of the most popular sauces in Spanish cuisine. The aioli recipe is not only the main character, but also the perfect accompaniment for fish, seafood, potatoes and baked recipes. We bring you a simple aioli recipe ideal to serve with different dishes or, simply, to dip with bread.


  • Eggs (1), garlic (2 cloves), olive oil (200 ml), vinegar, fresh parsley (optional) and salt

How to Make It:

  1. The first step is to peel and chop the garlic clove into small pieces. The original recipe only includes garlic and oil, but it is very difficult for the aioli recipe to properly emulsify in this way, that is why we add the egg.
  2. Pour the garlic into the mixer container together with the egg and a pinch of salt.
  3. Also add a good drizzle of olive oil and a few drops of vinegar.
  4. It is time to use the mixer. To ensure that the ingredients blend well, keep the mixer at the bottom and do not move it for 15 seconds. Whisk.
  5. Continue pouring the rest of the oil and moving up and down until the ingredients are mixed.
  6. If you want to add parsley you can do it at the end after cutting it previously in small pieces. You will have your aioli recipe in less than 3 minutes.

Our advice

Since it has egg, we recommend eating it during the day. If you store the aioli in the fridge, we suggest that you cover it with transparent paper and that it touches the sauce, so that it does not dry out.
