The three sauces we are making are: Garlic Mayo Aioli, Garlic Parsley Sauce and a Garlic Tomato Sauce. All three sauces are made with the simplest everyday ingredients and each one comes together within minutes.

I used an ordinary baguette from the grocery store to add the sauces into. But you can use any bread you like here. Either way, make sure to lightly toast the bread before adding the sauces. That way the bread doesn´t get soggy and keeps its beautiful texture.

TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: I used a handheld grater to finely grate the garlic into each sauce. But you can always just finely mince the garlic. To veganize the garlic mayo aioli, just use your favorte vegan mayonnaise.
