Easy Paleo Mayonnaise
Mayonnaise is one of those food items that I crave, but unfortunately store-bought mayo is usually made with canola oil and is not a healthy option for Paleo eaters! I was so worried about how long it would take or failing miserably that it was months before I even attempted to make mayonnaise! One day I decided to try it, assuming I would fail, and to my surprise it was so easy I could not believe I waited so long to try it! I found a recipe online and converted it to a Paleo version the best I could.
1 Egg yolk at room temperature
1 Tablespoon water
1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
Juice from half a lemon
1 cup of Avocado oil (or Olive Oil)
Add all ingredients to a cylindrical container. Insert a stick blender into the mixture and on low-speed begin to blend. Do not remove, move or speed up blender. Just be patient and allow the mixture to fully emulsify. I found the video below to be very helpful when I first attempted to make Paleo mayonnaise. This mayonnaise is also Whole30 and 21-Day Sugar Detoxcompliant.
Once the mayonnaise stabilizes you can add any combination of herbs, garlic and other flavors to make flavored mayonnaise. My first mayonnaise was flavored with buffalo seasoning from The Pampered Chef, which we put on everything! I have also done garlic powder or a taco seasoning which is wonderful on lettuce wraps!
