Potato sauce with garlic is similar to aioli on the principle of cooking, although some compare it to mayonnaise. In mayonnaise, it is mustard that makes this sauce thick, and in aioli and in the potato sauce presented in the recipe, this role is assigned to garlic. Since the sauce does not contain any animal components, it may well be considered vegan, that is, it can be used in Lent. If you can not live without mayonnaise, then this sauce can be an excellent alternative at least sometimes.
