Easy Homemade Whole Egg Mayonnaise #Whole30 #Recipe

Since going paleo, we do our best to avoid canola oil, soybean oil, high fructose corn syrup, and other refined sugars. To that end, I’ve been experimenting with making my own condiments. I make a pretty good ketchup, and I’ve been working on perfecting my homemade barbecue sauce. But I’d never even considered homemade mayonnaise until recently.

I like egg salad, but not the store-bought mayonnaise or dressing used in it. So I decided to try making my own. I’m not sure why, but I was kind of intimidated by the idea of making my own mayo. Once I actually tried it though, I couldn’t believe how easy and how delicious it was! If you’ve never had homemade mayonnaise, do yourself a favour and try this. This stuff is the essence of mayonnaise – it’s seriously so much better than store-bought!

Super Easy, Super Tasty Homemade Whole Egg Mayonnaise #Recipe #paleo #Whole30

Lots of mayo recipes only call for the yolk, but including the egg white gives it a lighter, fluffier taste that I prefer. Crack one whole egg into your blender. Add two teaspoons of fresh lemon juice, one teaspoon of white wine vinegar, half a teaspoon of mustard powder, half a teaspoon of sea salt, and a quarter of a teaspoon of garlic powder. Blend well.

Next, take three quarters of a cup of avocado oil (olive oil tastes too strong for this) and s-l-o-w-l-y drizzle a thin stream into the blender while it’s still going. Just keep blending while you slowly add the oil until the mixture emulsifies and thickens into recognizable mayo. I’ve made this using a stick blender too. Either way works.

Once you’ve got your mayo, feel free to jazz it up with different seasonings. I like to add a half teaspoon of chipotle chili powder to make a chipotle mayo that tastes awesome with veggie sticks or sweet potato fries. Or add two tablespoons finely minced pickled gherkins, one tablespoon lemon juice, and half a teaspoon of dried dill for a quick paleo tartar sauce.

Homemade mayonnaise should keep for at least a week in the fridge.

A note about food safety: This recipe contains raw egg. According to the Center for Disease Control, about 1 in 20,000 eggs is contaminated with salmonella. Older adults, young children, pregnant women, and people in poor health are at increased risk for serious illness. If you have any concerns about raw egg, there are many simple tutorials available online on how to pasteurize eggs at home.
