Rouille Recipe | PBS Food

Creamy, mildly spicy and redolent of garlic, Rouille is the perfect French sauce to top off a slice of bread. (Recipe Credit: Marc Matsumoto of Fresh Tastes.)

Occasion: ,


  • 0.9 ounces day-old baguette (crust removed, and torn into small pieces)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable stock
  • 0.3 ounces garlic (2 medium cloves)
  • 1 pasteurized egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup good olive oil
  • Cayenne pepper (to taste)


  1. Put the pieces of baguette in a bowl and pour the vegetable stock over it. Let the stock get fully absorbed by the bread before proceeding.
  2. Add the garlic, egg yolk, paprika and salt to the bowl. Use a hand blender to puree the mixture until smooth.
  3. Use a whisk to whisk in the olive to the Rouille a little bit at a time. Add cayenne pepper as desired and adjust salt to taste.
