Mayonnaise isn’t exactly the best food to include in your diet on a regular basis, but at least if you’re going to enjoy it, make it from scratch at home. The difference in flavour compared to regular store-bought brands is enough reason alone, but what’s more, you’re saving yourself from consuming a ton of additives, preservatives, and extra sugar. Not to mention that container of mayo you’d pick up at the store has been sitting there for weeks, maybe longer. Why put that in your body when you can make it yourself fresh at home in just a few minutes?
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup olive oil
1. Whip the egg yolk in a medium-sized bowl.
2. Add the lemon juice, mustard powder and salt, mixing everything together well.
3. Slowly drizzle the oil in, whisking gently until all of the oil has been added. You will notice the mixture start to fluff up as you keep adding oil and whisking. Continue whisking slowly until the mixture is uniform.
