Black Garlic Mayo: The Two Ingredient Spread That Will Change Your…Sandwich

Black Garlic Mayo | Umami Girl

Hello, my name is Carolyn, and I have never heard of food styling. Luckily this two-ingredient spread made from mayo and black garlic will wend its way into your heart on its own, even if the photo is all, “Brown schmear, don’t care.” Black garlic mayo is BOMB. Umami bomb, to be precise. It’s the easiest thing on earth and adds crazy flavor to your face. Try it on the best summer tomato sandwich you’ve ever had, or on virtually anything else that could use a savory kick.

Black garlic is just regular garlic that’s been painstakingly fermented into a super-savory, slightly sweet, sticky mess of crazy-ass garlic. It’s yummy. I recommend just kinda rolling with it and not asking too many questions.

That’s what I’m doing with this spread and also with my summer at the moment. So.

Talk to you soon.
