You’ll never buy store bought mayo again. You can thank me later. 🙂
Easy ‘Boat Motor’ Mayo
what you need:
The yolks from 2 eggs
3/4 cup avocado oil
1 TBS lemon juice
1/2 TBS apple cider vinegar
1 TBS dijon mustard
pinch of fine grain sea salt
(you can add herbs, spiciness, garlic, etc to taste!)
What to do:
Place all ingredients in a tall, narrow container (one that’s wide enough at the bottom to allow complete submersion of an immersion blender but not too wide to where you need to move the blender around the container to mix. this is a no no. Re-purposed glass jars, like Newman’s Own salsa containers, work great for this!) Place an immersion blender (aka ‘Boat Motor’) in the bottom of the container and turn it to high speed. VROOOOOM. The oil will begin to thicken. Once the bottom mixture thickens and turns off-white, begin to slowly lift the immersion blender up to the top to finish mixing the rest of the oil into the mayo. This mixing should take no longer than 20 seconds.
Store in the fridge in an airtight container. Use within a week.
TO MAKE RANCH DRESSING:
add 2-4 TBSalmond milk to reach desired liquid consistency
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1 TBS. parsley
1 TBS oregano
1 tsp. salt
(For chipotle ranch, add 2-4 tsp chipotle powder to reach desired smokey hotness!)
*put the lid on the container and shake!!
TO MAKE SPICY MAYO (FOR SUSHI, etc):
I usually add all ingredients to taste for my spicy mayo, so here’s what I put in there for spicy mayo with a kick:
1/2 cup easy ‘Boat Motor’ mayo mayo
sprinkle of garlic powder
just a little soy sauce (gluten free) or coconut aminos *note, soy sauce is not 21DSD approved, but coconut aminos are*
Sriracha (a healthy portion! probably about 1 TBS per 1/2 cup of mayo) *Note, sriracha is not 21DSD approved*
Mix it all together and slather on whatever you want!
You won’t have to buy mayo from the store ever again! Just keep some avocado oil handy and voila! (side note: I’ve tried this recipe with olive oil, and please let me save you from nastiness… it’s just not the same. Avocado oil has such a light taste that can’t be replaced in this recipe. You can find Avodaco oil on Amazon, BJ’s, Trader Joe’s, Harris Teeter, and many other grocery stores.
