HOMEMADE MAYONNAISE(Basic+variations)


This recipe is a no fail recipe ,so go ahead and get your hand blender or beater,and within minutes you would have a thick,creamy and tasty mayo.

I love the inclusion of mint mayonnaise in sandwiches like cucumber ,tomato ,egg…,, and the addition of mayonnaise in non vegan

food will complement with any combination.

Mayonnaise can be flavoured into herbal,spicy,nutty and countless variations . Using a little bit of imagination and innovation will

create a blast of flavours .

So no more buying mayonnaise,you can create your own flavours in the comfort of your home .

Using mustard and pepper powder is purely your choice . I’m giving you the recipe with 1 egg which will produce a teacup of

mayonnaise.You could use a little maths to increase the quantity 😊.
