Making mayo is a must if you don’t want to consume nasty rancid oils found in commercial mayo. The ingredients are never pure and most of the time they don’t taste good.
This is a quick and easy classic mayo recipe that should leave you satisfied. AND it’s actually healthy for you! Wait….this mayo is healthy??? Yes! It’s actually very nutrient dense. The Egg yolks and oil make some of the finest ingredients on the earth to put in your body.
About the ingredients
Let me do a small plug here. Eggs, if you don’t have an allergy, are one of the most nutritionally dense foods that you can eat. When eating egg yolks slightly pasteurized you are getting vitamin D, omega 3 fatty acids and B12. How’s that for a super food!
Then, by mixing these beautiful egg yolks with cold pressed olive oil you are making a food that is filled with antioxidants, is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral. This is a great way to add more healthy fat to your diet! Seriously, this mayo is like a superfood!!
One tip: You’ll most likely want to at least slightly pasteurize your eggs. If you don’t, you may be in store for some food poisoning. A lot of people say it’s safe but I’m not willing to risk it! You can see the recipe at the bottom of the post on how to do this.
I hope you enjoy this easy mayo recipe! Let me know what you think in the comments section below!
