Sesame Aioli

This recipe comes from one of our favourite foodie magazines. We made it for the first time this week and used it more as a dressing than an aioli. The creamy, umami flavours are super tasty for dipping, on salads and fresh vegetables or even to richen up a dish. Definitely a keeper.


  • 1 cup mayo (vegan or not)

  • 2 tbsp sesame oil (toasted if possible)

  • 4 tsp soy sauce

  • 4 tsp fresh lemon juice

  • 2 tsp toasted sesame seeds (plus a bit for garnish)

  • 1 tsp minced fresh ginger

  • 2 medium cloves garlic minced


Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir until combined and smooth. Note: Increase soya sauce and lemon juice to make aioli more liquid, similar to a dressing.
