Commercial mayonnaise is cheap, but have you ever tasted the real thing? It's not hard to make in the food processor.


Serves: 12 

  • 1 egg
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • juice of 1/2 large lemon (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard or dry mustard
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:5min  ›  Ready in:5min 

  1. Combine the egg, garlic, lemon juice and mustard in the container of a blender or food processor.
  2. Blend until smooth, then blend on low speed while pouring in the oil in a fine stream as the mixture emulsifies and thickens.
