Learn how to make vegan aioli in 1 minute with this quick and easy eggless recipe! This garlic mayonnaise is perfect as a dip for French fries and other snacks or as a spread or topping for burgers, oven-roasted vegetables or Spanish patatas bravas!
The Best Vegan Aioli Recipe
Aioli or allioli is a popular garlic dip that originated in the Mediterranean cuisine. It’s not only popular with grilled food, but with all kinds of dishes! Just like guacamole or hummus, aioli is a great addition to an appetizer platter with white bread, flatbread and olives. But you can also use it as an ingredient in a variety of salads and serve it with your favorite finger food snacks.
Since the original aioli recipe is not vegan and in many purchased products are often additives such as preservatives or artificial flavors, I prefer to make the garlic dip with vegan mayonnaise at home! So I can always enjoy the delicious garlic cream fresh and also save packaging waste!
Ingredients for this Garlic Dip
To make this recipe, all you need are a few simple ingredients that you may already have at home anyway. These are:
- Vegan yogurt: I like to use the “Alpro Skyr Style” plant-based quark alternative, as it has a wonderfully creamy and thick consistency. However, you can choose any variety you like.
- Vegan Mayonnaise: I always make my easy homemade mayo recipe, but feel free to use a store-bought one.
- Garlic cloves: For that classic aioli flavor.
- Lime: the juice of it.
- Salt and pepper: to taste.

Vegan garlic dip variations
If you want a different flavor, you can add some fresh herbs like parsley, chives or dill or other spices like curry, paprika or chili powder. Ajvar or tomato paste are also a tasty addition. If you like the dip a little sweeter, feel free to add some agave syrup or another sweetener. There are many possible variations here – so get creative!
How can I store homemade aioli?
Since homemade vegan aioli contains no eggs or dairy, it has a longer shelf life than the traditional version. It’s best to put it in a clean screw-top jar and store it in the refrigerator. There it keeps up to 1 week and even becomes more flavorful the longer it sits!

What to eat with vegan aioli?
Generally, aioli goes well with Spanish and provincial French cuisine. However, anywhere you might use mayonnaise, you could probably use aioli. Here are some ideas:
- As a dip for oven-roasted vegetables, French fries, polenta fries, patatas bravas, vegan nuggets, cauliflower wings, vegan burrito samosas or quesadillas.
- As a sandwich or burger spread or instead of mayo in my vegan egg salad wraps or chickpea tuna salad.
- Serve a dollop on top of stuffed sweet potato skins, hasselback potatoes, roasted brussels sprouts, crispy cauliflower or aloo paratha.
