This is really difficult, so hold onto your pants:

Egg + salt + veggie oil = mayonnaise!

I spiffed it up a little, but if you've never had homemade mayo, you should feel obligated to try this:

-1 egg
-1 egg yolk
-1/4 tsp salt, or to taste
-about 1/2 c. vegetable oil
-1/2 a key lime, or 1/4 a regular one
-1 tsp. vinegar

Put the eggs and salt into a blender, and turn it on to medium speed. When mixed and while the blender is still going, slowly pour in all the oil in a thin stream. When finished pouring, let the blender run for another half minute to a minute. The mayo should be nice an fluffy as mayo is. Add the juice of your lime and the vinegar, blend to mix, and eat!

For using it, here's a good recipe. Remember that okara from my last post, the leftovers from making tofu? I use this to make a "tuna" salad sandwich.


-1/2 a carrot, diced
-1/2 a stalk of celery, diced
-1/2 a spring onion, sliced
-a spoonful of edamame
-1/2 c. okara
-2 Tbs. mayonnaise
-1/4 tsp. pepper
-1 garlic clove, minced
-a pinch of cumin
-1 tsp. vinegar
-1/2 tsp. Chinese chili-garlic sauce

Mix it all up! I ate mine with whole wheat sandwich bread toasted with mozzarella cheese and tomato slices (like a tuna melt :D)
