Recipe's preparation

  1. Add garlic and leaves if using, chop 3sec/sp7, scrape down using spatula.
    Insert butterfly and add one whole egg plus two egg yolks, salt to taste and juice of one lemon. Salt may need to be adjusted at the end.
    Place MC on and turn to speed 3.5, meanwhile add enough oil to lid to fill it, and keep adding as it reduces until the mayonnaise is to the consistency required. The oil will seep through the mc into the bowl at just the right speed to emulsify your mayo.
    Note- the MC will float as you add the oil, I just leave it. I also use a spatula to use up all the oil on the lid as the mayo starts to thicken.
    Check consistency after you’ve filled the lid 3-4 times, if you want it thicker add more oil.

    Optional-With butterfly still going on sp3.5 add in one or two of the egg whites, this will make your mayo a little runnier and lighter in colour but it’ll use up your whites and increase the volume of your mayo.

    Store in airtight jar and refrigerate until needed.


Accessories you need



Using a ‘Light in Taste’ olive oil is imperative to the flavour of this mayo, EVOO will be way too strong, you could also use avocado oil or if you like the flavour of macadamia oil this could work to although it can seem strong to some.
Flavour your mayo as you wish using herbs and spices, or just make plain without any herbs or garlic.
The perfect mayo is a good blend of sour and salty so adjust as needed till it tastes just right!
