Mayo is so easy to make – you’ll never want to buy processed again!! This version has the added flavours of garlic and basil, which goes well with…just about anything!! 🙂


  • 1 + 1/4 cups extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • I egg
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Handful fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tsp mustard powder
  • 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp himalayan pink salt


  • Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice into a small jug
  • Place the 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, egg, mustard powder, black pepper, garlic & basil into a blender and whizz until mixed.
  • Add the rest of the olive oil (1 cup) to the lemon juice. Put the blender on minimum and SLOWLY add the oil & lemon. Be patient & don’t add too fast or the mixture will not blend properly and will curdle.
  • When fully mixed, spoon the mayo into a jar and store in the fridge for up to one week.
