Ginger Aioli

"This tempting, garlicky sauce has an Asian touch to it. I like to serve it with crab and fish cakes, and as a dip with mushrooms, baby corn, daikon radish slices, sugar snap peas, baby carrots, yellow bell pepper slices, and cherry tomatoes. For a beautiful presentation, hollow out a small purple cabbage in which to place a container of the aioli - outstanding with the colorful veggies. The sauce may be prepared a week in advance."

  • Thoroughly mix all ingredients together.
  • Chill at least an hour to blend flavors and thicken the aioli.
  • NOTE: I've had good luck freezing fresh ginger knobs.
  • They peel easily with a knife while still frozen, and grate easily with a microplane grater- just freeze small recipe size pieces individually (I put each piece in its own sandwich zip bag, then place all the bags inside a quart size freezer zip bag).
  • The 60 minutes cooking time is for chilling.

    Super easy and dee-lish - put it on scallion/soy turkey burgers and it was very nice!


An avid cook since I was a teenager, and a retired First-Grade teacher, my students and I used to cook twice a month in the classroom, coordinating what we prepared with our curriculum. I always snuck in mini- lessons on nutrition and manners at the same time. :) The children loved it, taking home recipes they made in class and asking their parents to make them again at home. THESE were no boring lessons on liquid and dry measurement! If you think about it, cooking is largely a combination of math, chemistry, and artistry. Fond memories of my students play a role in my cooking-life today. A giant, framed, black chalkboard graces one dining room wall, replete with the menu-of-the-day in manuscript handwriting and simple chalk drawings. Special joys in my life these days, (besides two outstanding grown children :), family, friends, and cooking) include gardening/landscaping, writing a book about teaching, music, discovering watercolors by local artists, and exploring my new island home, where bald eagles and Dungeness crabs are among my neighbors.
