Easiest Mayo Ever

Since learning about how awful the new (as in the last 50 years or so) veggie oils are for our poor overtaxed bodies, mayo from the store has been a rare and fleeting treat.  I have made my own with different old school oils but the process with the food processor is tedious at best and positively time restrictive at worst.

Until now!  I have recently been scouring the good food blogs for ideas for the meal planning that I have taken up.  I found a quick mayo recipe on PaleOMG that seemed plausible.  So I tried a basic version of her recipe.

It worked!!!!

It literally took 3 minutes to make the whole thing!

So then I altered it just a bit to see if it would work with other oils.  It did!!!

Now, I am only sharing it here because hers is attached to other recipes so I can never find it.  But I also wanted a less expensive version, since she swears by avocado oil.  Trust me, it is VERY pricey if you buy the good stuff.   This is also just a basic recipe that can then be altered a bazillion ways.  Seriously, go look at her blog for some really cool additions.

All you need is an immersion blender, a wide mouth quart sized jar, and a few ingredients.

Easiest Mayo Ever

1/3 cup warm coconut oil (I like the refined stuff for this, less coconut flavor.  Also, coconut oil is liquid once it hits 76 degrees so it shouldn’t have to be very warm)

1/3 cup olive oil (you could also use any other old world oil here as long as it is expeller pressed and organic) *

1 pastured egg

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp lemon juice

1 tsp any organic mustard

1/4 tsp garlic powder

pinch ground pepper

Directions:

Put all that into the mason jar.  Put the immersion blender to the bottom and blend.  Within about 30 seconds you should see the texture and color change.  It should look like a yellower version of mayo.  Mix til all the oil is emulsified, (blended in), and serve or refrigerate.

This only makes about 1 cup so it is the perfect amount for one recipe or a week’s worth of sandwiches.

*You can use more coconut oil if you want less olive oil flavor.  You want to make sure you have 2/3 cup oil total.

I may have to make this every week now.  I already made it 3 times just today.
