Have you looked at the ingredients on a bottle of shop-bought mayonnaise? It’s not pleasant. This is fairly typical…
SAD Mayonnaise Ingredients:
Sunflower oil (antioxidant , water, cane sugar, whole egg, white vinegar, malt vinegar (barley & wheat), salt, vegetable gums (405, 415), food acid (citric), natural colour (carrot extract), flavour.
But did you know how easy it is to make your own?
Paleo Mayonnaise Recipe
- 3 egg yolks (at room temperature)
- 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 200ml extra light olive oil
- Pinch sea salt
In a blender combine the egg yolks, vinegar and mustard and blend until the mixture begins to thicken.
Slowly add in the oil, until the mixture is light and creamy. Don’t rush this step; if the mixture separates you’ll have to start again!
Add in the salt, and season to your liking.
