Try this garlicky cayenne-spiced mayonnaise instead of traditional store-bought versions. It makes a delicious dip for steamed vegetables or a sandwich spread, or add a dollop to paella or crab cakes. Source: EatingWell Magazine, August/September 2005

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  • 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.

  • 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.


Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
