Garlic aioli, oil-free

Oil-Free Garlic Aioli and Sweet Potato Fries

Savory Oil-Free Vegan Garlic Aioli

I love sweet potato fries! And I love them even more with this oil-free garlic aioli. I never really liked mayonnaise in my pre-vegan days. The thought of egg yoke and oil mixed together almost makes me want to gag. Sorry for the visual but I was just not a fan.  However, this oil-free aioli is so creamy, savory and delicious. Perhaps I might just be biased, knowing all the ingredients in here are plant-based ingredients. Whatever the case, it’s really, really good. I put it on my sandwiches. I dip my fries in it and even used it over nachos. Believe me you just have to try it!

This creamy, flavorful oil-free dip is great as a sandwich spread or a dip for sweet potato fries.
