      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. All ingredients need to be at room temperature for the best results


    Squeeze the juice of the lime (or lemon if you prefer) and set aside


    Place a pouring jug onto mixing bowl lid and weigh the oil then aside


    Chop the garlic, dill and parsley 2-4 sec /  speed 8


    Scrape down the sides of the thermo jug, chop again if you want the blend finer


    Add all other ingredients except the canola oil

    Mix 1 min 30 sec / speed 4


    Trickle the canola oil in at the slowest pace possible. It should take up to 6 minutes or so. The slower you can manage to drizzle, the thicker the mayonnaise will be. Do this at speed 4 until desired consistency or oil has been emuslified into the egg mixture (around 6-7 minutes)

    As a final step  - fold through half the amount of lime or lemon juice and taste. Adding additional juice as per taste using the stir mode. (less than 1)


    Transfer to a glass jar and refrigerate


    Should last for around 2-3 weeks


Accessories you need



This mayonnaise is the closest thing to our favourite store bought herb mayonnaise (without the nasties).

It has the hubby's 2 thumbs up and goes on every sandwich, roll or toasted indulgence.

It works not only as a delicious mayonnaise but as a topping for poached eggs, poached or baked salmon, trout or as a cooked prawn dipping sauce.
