An easy recipe for homemade aioli flavored with thyme.
  • 1 large whole egg
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove
  • ¼ to ½ teaspoon salt (to taste)
  • ½ cup canola or grapeseed oil
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh thyme, leaves and blossoms only
  1. In a blender, combine whole egg, lemon juice, mustard, garlic, and a little salt. Pulse until combined. With the motor running, pour the canola oil through the feed hole in a slow drizzle, followed by the olive oil, also in a slow drizzle. The mayonnaise will start to thicken and you'll hear the sound change. That's when you'll know it's time to turn off the blender. Scrape down the sides and add the thyme. Pulse a few times until everything is combined. Transfer to a bowl, cover and chill until ready to serve.
Note: This recipe contains raw egg. Caution should be used when consuming raw eggs, particularly when serving to children, the elderly, pregnant women and those with weakened immune systems. I've never gotten sick from raw eggs, but I know people who have. Make sure to use very fresh eggs and wash the outside of the egg before cracking it.
