Updated: Dec 17, 2020
If you're looking for a healthy alternative to mayo, look no further. This low-iodine version is an excellent addition to your pantry. (Contributed by Christina B. of Maryland.)
Why settle for store-bought mayonnaise when you can make a healthier, tastier option from the comfort of home? Once you try this masterful mayo recipe, you'll never look back.
In Christina's own words:
"This was my Aunt Jan's recipe that she used for years with her kids. She would make a batch and put it in a store-bought mayonnaise jar and her kids never knew the difference."
2 egg whites (or 1 egg if off the low-iodine diet)
1 teaspoon dried mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar (optional)
1/4 cup oil
3 tablespoons lemon juice
Additional 1/2 cup oil
Shake of curry, turmeric, or paprika if desired to add additional flavor
Place egg whites, mustard, salt, sugar, and oil in a blender; cover and mix
Keep blender running; remove cap
Add lemon juice slowly
Next, add 1/2 cup of oil very slowly (one tablespoon at a time) and stop when mayo is at desired consistency (should be thick)
