Easy Home Made Mayonnaise
August 14, 2013

Summer time for me is all about fresh salads with home made mayo being the perfect accompaniment.   Mayonnaise is surprisingly easy to make.  It just requires a blender and… a little patience.   If you haven’t tried it, give it a go.  Full of good fats with the oil and the egg, it’s also a great way to enjoy the magic of garlic.  And it tastes SO good.

Preparation:  8 minutes
Serves
:  approx. 1 cup

Easy Home Made Mayonnaise
Ingredients:

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp good quality dijon mustard (or grainy – optional)
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 clove of garlic crushed
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup of macadamia oil or grapeseed oil

Directions:

  • Add all the ingredients (except the oil) into a blender or Thermomix
  • Mix the ingredients thoroughly on a low – medium speed.
  • Very slowly and with a steady trickle, add the oil through the lid of the blender until you’ve finished pouring and the mix turns thick and creamy, (this will take between 4 – 6 minutes).

Option:  Once thickened you can add the egg white.  Mix for a few seconds.  (I usually add the egg white, it takes out the sharpness and makes it taste creamier).

Notes

  • All ingredients need to be at room temperature to get the best results, especially the egg.
  • Add in your favourite herbs for extra yumminess and goodness e.g. fresh basil, parsley or coriander chopped finely.
  • This Mayo is great in kids sandwiches, with seafood, your favourite summer salad or anything you like!
