Chef Arlyn Llewellyn spreads roasted garlic aioli on many sandwiches at Function Brewing because it’s easy to customize.
When she made a batch for Earth Eats recently, the plan was to pair it with a spicy veggie burger. So, she includes some chipotles in adobo in the aioli to mirror the southwest flavors in that burger. If she's making a banh mi, though, a healthy dollop of Sriracha makes the ingredient list instead.
You'll notice that this recipe includes no salt. That's where the miso comes in. "It brings all the salt but then also that complexity that miso’s so good at," says Llewellyn.
