Vegan Aioli

I was looking for something creamy to use as a spread and a sauce. I also wanted to incorporate extra protein and potassium.

I hate those yahoo articles about weight loss and exercise. I don't hate weight loss nor exercise. I just hate the way their articles address it.

Listen to those sad articles on yahoo and spend your entire life dieting.
