Roasted Garlic Mayonnaise

Try this garlicky cayenne-spiced mayonnaise instead of traditional store-bought versions. It makes a delicious dip for steamed vegetables or a sandwich spread.

Yield: about 3/4 cup
Active Time: 10
Total Time: 45


  • 1 head garlic
  • 5 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup silken tofu (4 1/2 ounces)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Place the head of garlic on a piece of foil, drizzle with 1 teaspoon oil and wrap into a package. Roast directly on the oven rack until the cloves are soft, 30 to 40 minutes.
  3. Squeeze the roasted garlic into a blender or food processor. Add the remaining 4 1/2 teaspoons oil, tofu, lemon juice, paprika, salt and cayenne. Puree until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl once or twice, if necessary. Transfer to a small bowl.
