Spicy Carrot Aioli
|Spicy Carrot Aioli|
|Servings:||1 bowl and 1 blender|
Every vegan should know about aioli and related sauces. They add a creaminess which can be otherwise rare in vegan cooking.
The key to the not-vegan-tasting deliciousness of an aioli is the garlic / olive oil emulsion. The same principle is at work in hummus (or marinara). Other common emulsifiers are glycerin, soy lecithin (present in soya-milk, tofu etc.) and egg yolk.
Note on carrots
Carrots can damage some blending equipment. It is recommended to cut them into really small pieces so they're easier to blend.
