Roasted Vegetables with Aioli Recipe

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Pinch cayenne
  • Salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds baking potatoes, peeled and cut into approximately 4-by-1/2-inch sticks
  • 5 carrots, cut into approximately 2 1/2-by-1/2-inch sticks
  • 2 red bell peppers, cut into 1/2-inch-thick strips
  • 1 pound asparagus, tough ends snapped off
  • 3 hard-cooked eggs, peeled and quartered
  1. Heat the oven to 450 degrees F. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, garlic, 2 tablespoons of the oil, the lemon juice, cayenne, and a pinch of salt. Mix well and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Put the potatoes and carrots on a large baking sheet and toss them with 2 tablespoons of the oil and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Spread the vegetables out in a single layer and roast them in the oven for 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, put the bell-pepper strips on a second large baking sheet and toss them with 1 teaspoon of the oil and 1/8 teaspoon salt. After 15 minutes, take the first pan out of the oven and turn the vegetables with a spatula. Put both pans in the oven and roast for 5 minutes. Toss the asparagus with the remaining 2 teaspoons of oil and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Put the asparagus on the pan with the peppers. Roast until all the vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes longer. Serve the roasted vegetables and hard-cooked eggs with the aioli.
