Easy Chipotle Aioli

Ingredients

air fried cauliflower and chipotle aioli

Ingredients to make 8 servings (or 1 – 1 1/4 cups)

Serving size: ~2 tablespoons
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle pepper sauce in adobo
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • pinch of raw sugar (1/2 teaspoon)
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 2/3 cups avocado oil
    • SUBSTITUTE: olive oil, safflower oil, grapeseed oil, macadamia nut oil
  • sea salt & pepper to taste (note: add a pinch of pepper first since canned chipotle peppers are kinda salty)

 

Steps

In a high powered blender or food processor, add all ingredients EXCEPT for the oil.  Pulse blend to combine all the ingredients.   Then place the blender on a SLOW, constant speed.  As it blends, slowly pour in the oil.

Keep the speed low and steady until it thickens and aioli forms.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
