Easy Mayonnaise

Preparation time, 5 mins.

Ingredients Yields 1 cup

  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 250 ml sunflower oil


Ensure all ingredients are at room temperature before you start. Add all ingredients to a tall beaker, starting with the egg and ending with the oil.
Place the handheld blender on the bottom of your container, making sure to cover the egg with it. Start mixing on medium to high speed until the bottom part starts to emulsify and you can spot yellowish streaks of mayonnaise slowly making their way to the top. Now – very slowly – start moving the blender upwards until all of the oil is incorporated and you have a smoothly textured mayonnaise. That’s it. Enjoy immediately or keep cool and well covered in the fridge for another day.

Apparently you should not substitute olive oil in this recipe as it is very likely to turn bitter. Might be nice to try making a garlic aoli in with this method...
