As promised in my Baked Asparagus Fries Recipe post, here’s a fantastic Lemon Garlic Aioli Recipe!

In case you aren’t familiar with what aioli is, it’s a traditional French sauce made by mixing lemon, eggs, garlic, and olive oil into a smooth, creamy mixture resembling mayonnaise. It originates from Provençal cuisine, where it is served with meat, fish, and vegetables, and the distinctive garlicky sauce has also been adopted by other nations to add zest to otherwise ordinary foods.

My healthier version eliminates the oil and uses pasteurized liquid egg substitute instead of whole raw eggs. It makes a fantastic low calorie dip or sauce for a variety of foods.

Try this lemon garlic aioli over roasted vegetables, chicken, or fish, or as a flavorful healthy sandwich spread. I also love it as a dip for baked pita chips, or as a light spread for crudite.

  1. This is not what you want if you’re looking for something that tastes like aioli. But it is a healthy sauce that can be used with veggies and sweet potato fries.

    Maybe under the old system this Aioli sauce was 1 point, but under the new system it is 0 Smart Points.

  3. Could this recipe use egg whites instead of egg beaters?
