Servings: Yield 1 cup (240 ml) | Time: 15 minutes active | Difficulty: Moderate
1 egg yolk (room temperature)
1/4 tsp. (1.5 g) salt
1/4 tsp. (0.5–1 g) garlic pepper
1 Tbsp. (15 ml) mustard
2 Tbsp. (30 ml) olive oil
2 Tbsp. (30 ml) vinegar
10 Tbsp. (150 ml) olive oil
1 drop essential oil of choice (we suggest basil, rosemary, lemon, or black pepper)
Add the egg yolk, salt, garlic pepper, mustard, 2 Tbsp. olive oil, and vinegar to a medium mixing bowl.
Whisk quickly, always turning the same direction.
Once the mixture thickens, add a little bit more oil, and whisk until it becomes thick again (approximately 2 Tbsp. at a time until you have added an additional 10 Tbsp.).
Add 1 drop essential oil to the mayonnaise, depending on which flavor you would prefer.
Enjoy with a toasted tomato sandwich or any other recipe calling for mayonnaise.
