I have an almost embarrassing love affair with mayonnaise. I have loved it ever since I was a kid. If left to my own devices as a child I would always eat a heaping mound of mayonnaise smeared on a piece of white bread. While my dietary choices have drastically changed, my love of mayo remains unwavering. One of my favorite things about mayonnaise is that you can use it to add creaminess to dishes without adding extra dairy.
It’s amazing to me how many years I bought store bought mayonnaise when it is so easy to make your own mayonnaise at home. Not to mention, it is so much better for you. Most of the mayos in the store have a lot of nasty things added to them.
2 Min May
- 1 Lemon
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp mustard powder
- 1 cup avocado oil
- In a tall, wide mouth mason jar add the lemon juice first, then the egg, seasonings, and finally the oil. Let the ingredients rest for 20 seconds or so.
- Put the immersion blender all the way at the bottom of the mason jar. Turn it on high speed and leave it at the bottom of the jar for about 20 seconds. The mayonnaise will immediately begin to set up and fill the jar.
- After the mayonnaise is almost all the way set, slowly pull the immersion blender towards the top of the jar without taking the blades out of the mayonnaise. Then, slowly push it back towards the bottom of the jar. Repeat this step a couple of times until all of the ingredients are well well incorporated.
- Taste and add more salt, if desired.
