Pickled Veggies Ingredients

  • 3-5 large carrots, cut into oversized matchsticks (¼” x ¼” x 2”)
  • 1 small daikon radish, cut into oversized matchsticks (¼” x ¼” x 2”)
  • 3 cups water
  • 3 cups white vinegar
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 3 pinches salt
  • 1 tbsp black peppercorn
  • 2 leaves bay leaves
  • 8 sprigs fresh thyme

Pickled Veggies Instructions

Bring the water and white vinegar to a boil. Once at a boil add the sugar, salt, black peppercorns, bay leaf, and fresh thyme. Pour the liquid over the carrots and radish with enough liquid to fully cover the vegetables. Leave the carrots and radishes in the liquid, cover them, and place them in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours.

Garlic Aioli Ingredients

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 shallot, peeled
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2-3 pinches salt
  • 1-2 pinches pepper
  • 4 heads roasted garlic
  • 4 cups canola or vegetable oil
  • ½ cup water

Garlic Aioli Instructions

One day before the cook set the EGG for indirect cooking with the convEGGtor at 400°F/204°C.

Cut tops off garlic to expose the cloves. Drizzle with oil and place on the grid for 40 minutes. The garlic will be fragrant and soft to touch. Squeeze garlic cloves from their skins and place them in a covered bowl to cool in the refrigerator.

For the garlic aioli, add egg yolks, shallot, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and roasted garlic to a food processer. Blend until a semi-smooth yellow mixture. Add canola oil very slowly to the mixture while the food processer runs. When the mixture begins to thicken, add a ⅛ cup of water. This allows the aioli to take more oil. Continue adding oil and small amounts of water, alternating, but always finishing with oil.
