- For the Rosemary Aioli (Yields 3 cups): In a spice grinder, add the rosemary leaves and grind to a course powder. In a blender, add the ground rosemary, egg yolks, dijon, vinegar, and water. Process until combined. With the machine running, add the oil in a slow, steady stream. Mix in the tamari, sambal and honey. Season with salt and pepper.
