A quick and easy 2 minute Mayonnaise recipe.. Lets get going !!!!
- 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1 tsp kosher/rock salt (or 1/2 tsp table salt)
- 1 whole egg / Egg Yolk as you prefer
- 1 cup (125ml) light olive oil
- seasonings like black pepper
Take a blender jar. Start with a whole egg and blend it for about 20 seconds. Using the egg yolk will give Mayo a thicker consistency. Add lemon juice and salt (I prefer rock salt) and blend the mixture for another 20 seconds. Then comes the oil. I would suggest using a light one with no strong flavour. Do not use extra virgin olive oil. You need a healthy option that’s light in flavour, so light olive oil works well. Also a very good option is avocado oil. While blending, remember to slowly add in the oil, in drops. This is really important. If you were to put it all together, you’d have a mayonnaise disaster.
Your mayo is done when all the ingredients are incorporated well and the final consistency is thick and creamy.
Taste your mayo and adjust salt, add seasonings or herbs as per your taste.
