Before I jump right into the recipe, I want to clear some things up for those looking at this recipe with question marks in their eyes, like what is a truffle and what do truffles taste like?!
What is a truffle? A truffle, at least the ones used in this recipe, are not the delicious chocolate treats you may already associate with the name. Instead, these truffles are actually subterranean fungus found on trees. Black truffles grow on oak and hazelnut trees in France.
What do truffles taste like? Not chocolate! 😉 Black truffles taste a bit garlicky, which is why they work so well in this aioli sauce, and a bit earthy or musky. A unique, delicious flavor that makes them a great accent to many dishes. In fact, black truffles have become my secret ingredient in many recipes!
Black truffles do tend to be expensive, which is why they’re often shaved on top of dishes in fancy restaurants but if you want to cook with them at home, you can also find truffle butter, truffle salt, truffle oil and, as used in this recipe, truffle pate.
Now, back to the recipe….
Aioli sauce is one of my favorite dipping sauces for french fries. It’s also delicious on certain sandwiches or with garlic potatoes. This Truffle Aioli Sauce is my twist on a traditional aioli sauce and the black truffle pate truly makes it a stand-out condiment!
While many truffle aioli recipes use truffle oil, this recipe uses black truffle pate. If you don’t have time to order and can’t find truffle pate, you can substitute 2 tablespoons truffle oil.
Make sure to fold in truffle pate by hand instead of throwing it in the food processor. You’ll end up with a muddy gray sauce instead of a delightfully speckled sauce.

Tools for making Truffle Aioli Sauce:
Mini Food Processor– I use this thing daily! It is by far my most used kitchen appliance, it is small and I throw all the parts into the dishwasher, well except the base and cord, of course!
In a small food processor, pulse garlic cloves until finely minced.
Add mayonnaise and salt. Blend until smooth.
By hand, fold in black truffle pate.
