Asparagus with Garlic Mayonnaise

Garlic mayonnaise, or aļoli, is a staple condiment in Provence;
in fact, throughout France mayonnaise is the
only acceptable dip for an order of frites (French fries)!
Our ridiculously-simple garlic mayonnaise is sublime on asparagus, and once you try
it we're sure you'll want to try it in other combinations.
  • 3/4 cup/375 mL mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp/10 mL Watkins Garlic Liquid Spice
  • 1 tbsp/15 mL capers, drained and chopped (optional)
  • 2 bunches of asparagus, trimmed
Mix all ingredients together, refrigerate or use right away.

Cook or steam asparagus over boiling water until bright green and tender (6-8 minutes). Cool immediately in ice water, drain and refrigerate or serve at room temperature. Makes just over 3/4 cup/180 mL

  • Serve garlic mayonnaise with grilled vegetables like zucchini, eggplant, onions or red pepper, or with grilled bread.
  • Serve with ground Watkins Sea Salt.
  • Use the mayonnaise on broiled or grilled fish.
Chipotle Mayonnaise - Substitute Watkins Chipotle Liquid Spice for Garlic. Eliminate capers and season to taste with Watkins Cilantro. For added heat, you can mix in some Watkins Salsa Seasoning Blend. Use this mayonnaise on chicken, burgers or grilled vegetables.

Soup Base Tips!
  • Use Chicken or Beef Soup Base instead of salt when boiling pasta, rice or potatoes . Match the flavour to the meat being prepared and get less sodium with more flavour than salt.
  • Onion Soup Base makes a delicious French Onion Dip that's better than the leading national brands - with less salt and easier to alter to your own taste.
  • Combine Chicken and Beef Soup Bases to make an even better gravy for pork or game dishes.
  • Mix Onion Soup Base into ground beef before forming into hamburgers, or sprinkle on a roast .
  • Quick Nacho Dip: Make thick cheese sauce as directed on the Cheese Soup Base label, adding Watkins Salsa & Sour Cream Snack & Dip Mix Seasoning!
