Don’t be put off by stories of how hard it is to make mayonnaise. If you use a stick blender, it’s dead easy. And you know it’s full of healthy fats and no artificial ingredients!
- 1 large egg yolk
- 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
- 1/4 teaspoon gluten free Dijon mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon salt plus more to taste
- 3/4 cup light olive oil
- Use a tall container that will fit your stick blender, making sure the blender reaches right to the bottom of the container
- Put the egg yolk, lemon juice, vinegar and mustard into the bottom of the container and give it a quick blitz to mix it all thoroughly
- Put the container on a damp tea towel – this will stop it moving around while you do the next bit
- Slowly pour the olive oil into the egg mixture, blitzing it all the time
- You need to add in a slow, steady stream – not too fast
- As you add the oil, the mixture will thicken up. Keep adding the oil until you reach the consistency you like – you may not use all the oil.
- If the mayonnaise won’t thicken, beat another egg yolk and slowly add it to the mayonnaise until it thickens.
Voila! Your very own mayonnaise!
