Mayonnaise has at all times been one among my favourite condiments. But whereas the store-bought stuff is a handy and low cost possibility, it’s typically crammed with unhealthy components like vegetable oil and preservatives. My do-it-yourself mayo however is filled with protein and good fat, and it tastes scrumptious!
This mayonnaise recipe is straightforward to make and goes nice with tuna or rooster salad. Though there at the moment are, fortunately, some nice retailer purchased mayo choices (particularly this avocado oil primarily based mayo), I nonetheless desire the do-it-yourself model when I’ve time to make it.
The Issue With Mayo
I hope by now we are able to agree that inflammatory vegetable oils should not have any place in anybody’s food plan. Seed oils like canola oil and grapeseed oil are well-liked neutral-flavored oils for mayo and different condiments. They’re mass-produced and low cost to make use of, however they arrive with unfavorable well being penalties.
Healthy components apart, do-it-yourself mayo simply tastes higher in my view. Anytime we use clear, entire components recipes have a lot extra taste. And it’s straightforward sufficient to make mayo there’s actually no excuse to not! It goes nice with egg salad, potato salad, or as the bottom for aioli.
How to Make Mayonnaise
There are a couple of methods to getting your do-it-yourself mayo to work, nevertheless it’s actually easy when you get the hold of it. You could make this with a daily blender or an immersion blender (stick blender). It’s actually vital that every one the components are at room temperature for this recipe. Having a chilly egg or components which are too scorching could cause the mayo to separate or not emulsify.

If the oil goes in too quick it breaks the emulsion and the mayo gained’t thicken. If you comply with the following pointers the recipe is foolproof, even when it’s your first time making your personal mayo!
Some mayo recipes use an entire egg, however this one simply makes use of the yolks and omits the egg whites. If you’re on the lookout for a method to make use of up among the leftover egg whites, do this egg white face masks or coconut macaroon recipe.
Homemade Mayo Ingredients
It’s fairly easy with eggs, lemon, oil, sea salt, and seasoning. Since this recipe makes use of uncooked eggs (as a substitute of pasteurized eggs), there’s a threat of salmonella if the eggs aren’t from a wholesome supply. I at all times use eggs from wholesome, free-range hens in my recipes, particularly after they’re uncooked.
You can use any oils for this, although I desire coconut, olive, walnut, or different wholesome oils. MCT oil may also be used rather than coconut oil in the event you don’t just like the coconut oil taste. If you don’t like a coconut taste and like a extra conventional “mayo taste” you need to use gentle olive oil (not further virgin olive oil).
Keep this recipe in thoughts for the following time you do a Whole 30 or comparable actual meals food plan. It’s an awesome supply of wholesome fat! Use it as the bottom for salad dressing or your subsequent veggie dip.
