We’ve been on a homemade condiment kick, and we’re trying to do EVERYTHING homemade.
Our main reason being that we want to ensure that we know exactly what we feed our toddler, as far as possible.
So, something that tends to get looked over when it comes to healthy eating is condiments, but there’s no reason to go without these yummy sauces that bring that extra level of deliciousness to your plate.
The big ones: homemade ketchup and homemade mayonnaise. While we’ve made plenty of variations of homemade ketchup, we’re not quite happy with our recipe yet.
So, first up is our super easy foolproof homemade mayonnaise.
What is great about making your own mayonnaise is that it takes no time at all. Serious. You put a few ingredients into you blender and slowly add oil. That’s literally all it takes.
Not only can you have fresh mayonnaise whenever you need it, but you know exactly what ingredients are in it! And that is priceless!
How to make paleo homemade mayonnaise:
Another nice thing about making your own mayonnaise is that you can create it to be in line with whatever your dietary requirements are. Unless you’re allergic to egg, of course. Mayonnaise needs egg.
Our recipe is Paleo, Low-Carb, Keto, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, AND Whole 30 friendly. (The honey is optional, and you can sub mustard powder if you can’t have Dijon).
So this is how it goes:
Start by adding these ingredients to your blender:
- 1 whole large egg,
- 1/4 cup of Avocado Oil (or very light Olive Oil),
- 1/2 tsp salt,
- Juice of 1/2 a lemon,
- 1 tsp white vinegar,
- 1 tsp Dijon Mustard,
- 1 tsp Honey
Now blend these ingredients together for about 30 second and then slowly and steadily pour the remaining cup of oil into the blender while it’s running.
Soon, the mixture will emulsify, and by the time you’ve added all the oil – you’re left with a luscious mayonnaise. Ready for whatever you need!
What I’ve realized is, that many people might get discouraged from making homemade mayonnaise, because certain oils cause a bitter taste. I’ve found that Avocado Oil or very light Olive Oil tend to make the best homemade mayonnaise.
