How to make mayonnaise
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 1-2 garlic cloves
  • Juice of 1 lemon or lime
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 egg (room temp)
  • salt & pepper
  • 2-3 anchovies
  • ¼ cup olive oil/macadamia/avocado
  1. In a food processor or stick blender blitz the garlic, lemon juice, mustard, egg, salt and pepper, anchovies and about ¼ cup of the oil. Blitz until well combined.
  2. Then with the processor/stick blender going SLOWLY pour in the rest of the oil in a constant but gentle trickle. Keep going until the oil isn’t absorbed anymore – if it won’t ‘blend’ in anymore, just stop adding the oil.
  3. Taste and season again if needed.
  4. Refrigerate.
