Can be either an appetizer or vegetable side dish--the number of servings varies depending on which. Adjust the amount of garlic to your taste. Make aioli just before serving; discard any left-over sauce, it will not keep.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Steam the cauliflower al dente.
  2. Whisk the garlic into the egg yolks.
  3. Whisk in the oil very gradually.
  4. Put the aioli (garlic-egg yolk sauce) into a small bowl standing on a flat plate.
  5. Arrange florets around bowl.

Thank you for a new and very easy way to fix cauliflower. I didn't have any "farm fresh" eggs though, so used mayo instead of the olive oil and eggs and I also added some lemon juice to taste. We loved it! I will try it with the fresh eggs and olive oil, but still think I will add the lemon juice, it really seemed to go well with the cauliflower. I even had some of the sauce on my salmon and it was really good with that! I will try adding a dash of Tabasco too next time.
