Aioli, the sister condiment to mayonnaise, is one of our favorite dishes to make in the food processor. Although Escoffier would probably still urge us to make it by hand, cutting out all the whisking helps save you time and incredibly sore forearms. Traditionally, aioli was made by grinding the garlic in a mortar and pestle and then whisking everything together. However, we just like to throw in ingredients and then slowly add in the oil. The food processor does all the hard work for us. Serve it as a dip for veggies, french fries or shellfish.
