HOMEMADE MAYO IN 5 MIN
There’s no need to buy mayonnaise when you can make it in 5 minutes with a hand stick blender.
Most conventional mayos are made from unhealthy, genetically modified canola oil that has been extracted by rendering or using chemicals. Often sugars and preservatives have also been added to conventional mayos.
I used to make mayo with extra virgin olive oil but some people find the flavour too strong. If that’s the case for you, you can make go on some kind of compromise by substituting half of the extra virgin olive oil with organic cold-pressed canola oil that comes in a dark glass bottle.
This way you can make a healthy homemade mayo that you can enjoy and with half extra virgin olive oil you ensure a more nutrient-dense mayo than if you only use organic cold-pressed canola oil.
2 Whole eggs (or 1 whole egg plus 1 egg yolk)
1 tsp Mustard
1/2 tsp Unrefined salt
1 tbsp Apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp Lemon juice
125 ml Extra virgin olive oil
125 ml Unrefined cold/pressed canola oil
Use organic ingredients.
Add all ingredients except the oils into a tall narrow bowl or glass that fits your hand stick blender and mix it until well combined.
At highest speed pour in the oils but it doesn’t have to be as slow as for traditionally mayo making. It should take more than 5 min total.
You’ll probably find it a little more yellow with slightly thinner consistency than conventional mayos.
Pour in a glass jar with lid and store in the fridge for about a week.
