Roasted Garlic Mayonnaise

Roasted Garlic MayonnaiseRoasted Garlic Mayonnaise is one of my favourites but it's often sold in a small jar with a large price! I often make my own mayonnaise so I thought I would making my own. This is a really easy recipe, which is great for the coming barbecue season. We have been barbecuing for the last month, although sometimes in the rain, so we've given this recipe a proper grilling!     Okay, so this is definitely not a recipe for dieters, as it is a mayonnaise and not a low-fat dressing, but I have also added the roasted garlic to low fat creme fraiche or yoghurt which also makes a great dip served with prawns or vegetables.Roasted Garlic Dip Don't be tempted to add raw garlic to the mayonnaise as it won't have the sweet creaminess  of roasted garlic and can taste quite bitter. This is embarrassingly easy. Just stick a whole, unpeeled bulb of garlic in an ovenproof dish. Roasted Garlic mayonnaise Roast in the oven for about 40 minutes at 170 degrees C. I usually stick it in with something else.  Roasted Garlic Mayonnaise When it's cool enough to handle squeeze out the garlic from the skins. Roasted Garlic Mayonnaise I used a food processor to combine egg yolks with salt and the roasted garlic. Put the oil into a jug and drizzle in gradually with the processor on. You can do this by hand with a whisk if you have the stamina! Roasted Garlic Mayonnaise Add a little lemon juice and seasoning and it's ready to eat!

  1. Although mayo is readily available here, i like to make it myself because of the improved flavor. As often as I’ve added garlic to the bowl, I’ve never thought to roast the garlic first. I will definitely try this next time. Raw garlic can be a bit harsh but roasted? Yum! Thanks for the tip!

    1. I agree. I often used to put raw garlic in shop bought mayonnaise to go with prawns but it is quite savage. Roasting it first makes it much sweeter. 🙂
