3- Minute Mayo
Food made at home is so much better in taste and usually is healthier, leaving out unnecessary chemicals and preservatives. However, making fresh, homemade items can be difficult and time-consuming. But when I find an easy and yummy recipe, I’m all over it! This mayo recipe originally came from a spiral-bound manual I picked up from a nutritionist many years ago. I came across it a few months ago and tried this mayo recipe, with a few minor adjustments, and I haven’t had store-bought mayo since.
The short ingredient list is below and I created a short video making a batch in my kitchen. It literally takes less than 3-minutes and what mayo I can’t fit into the glass container I use for a nice veggie or turkey sandwich! Also, the mayo is awesome in homemade salad dressings! (I’ll do a blog on that soon. I don’t buy salad dressings anymore either. It’s so much easier, healthier, and tastier to make my own).
Watch me make the mayo in this 3-minute video:
INGREDIENTS FOR 3-MINUTE MAYO
- 1 egg, room temperature (preferably organic)
- Juice from 1/2 lemon
- 1 cup of a healthy, light-tasting oil such as safflower or avocado. Olive oil is too strong in my opinion and doesn’t taste well in mayo. I prefer to use safflower oil.
- A pinch of salt (preferably sea salt)
- OPTIONAL: 1 tsp of dijon mustard or other spicy mustard. I use JoAn’s Mustard (seriously yummy. I use this in my salad dressings as well)
IMPORTANT: You will need to use an immersion blender!
Put all ingredients in a container with tall sides and use the immersion blender to mix until you reach a nice thick consistency for spreading. Refrigerate immediately and use within 7-10 days.
