Healthy Inspirations Recipe of the Week – Mayonnaise

Healthy Inspirations


Makes about 3/4 cup


  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/4 tsp pepper (optional)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (optional)


  1. Break the egg into a pint wide-mouth jar. Add the salt, mustard and lemon juice (and the pepper and garlic if using). Pour the oil on top but do not stir.
  2. Immerse a stick blender to the bottom of the jar. Hold on the bottom and blend 5-6 seconds until the bottom starts to look creamy and whitish. Move the blender up and down slowly until the mayonnaise has emulsified. Alternatively, a blender will work in place of a stick mixer: blend all ingredients except the oil and gradually add the oil while blending continuously.
