Creamy, Smooth and Delicious Mayonnaise

Our next group doing the Ready...Set...Reboot Your Body has gotten underway. In our first session, when we talk about meal planning many questions came up as they usually do. Healthy eating at the beginning can look challenging especially when you eliminate processed foods from your diet. One of the biggest items missed is mayonnaise. All the ingredients are included in the program. and homemade mayonnaise is easy, keeps in the frig for several weeks and taste better (we think). Here's the recipe we prepared in our Ready...Set....Cook! Cooking Class with great success.

HOMEMADE MAYONNAISE

2 large eggs*
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice or white wine vinegar
11/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup grapeseed or mild olive oil

In food processor bowl fitted with chopping blade place eggs, lemon juice, mustard and salt; process until smooth, about 30 seconds. With processor running, add ¼ cup oil through feed tube in a very slow stream, being sure each drop is incorporated into mixture before adding next. This step should take about 1 minute. Once mixture is emulsified and homogeneous, slowly add remaining oil until thick, about 4 minutes. Add seasoning as desired. Makes 1 1/2 cups.

*Raw egg warning: Caution is suggested in consuming raw and lightly cooked eggs due to the slight risk of salmonella or other food-borne illness. Use only fresh, properly refrigerated, clean, grade A or AA eggs with intact shells.
