easy peasy homemade roast garlic mayo
- 2 bulbs garlic
- 1 cup light olive oil
- ½ teaspoon dijon mustard
- 3 free-range egg yolks
- 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons water
- ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
- ½ teaspoon salt
Although the garlic is not actually ‘roasted’ in this recipe, that great roast garlic flavor is still achieved.
- Place the garlic and oil in a small saucepan and cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes. Cover the saucepan and reduce to a low heat for another 15 minutes.
- Take off heat and carefully open lid and turn garlic, then cover again off the heat for another 20 minutes. Remove lid and allow to cool.
- Once the garlic has cooled down remove it carefully from the saucepan squeezing each bulb a little to allow the oil to drip back into the saucepan. Slice the bulbs half way between the top and bottom and squeeze the cooked cloves into a food processor bowl. Take care to discard any bits of skin. Process until smooth.
- Add the egg yolks, mustard and vinegar and process until combined. Transfer the oil from the saucepan into a poring jug and slowly add to the food processor in a thin stream. Once combined add the water, salt and pepper. If it is a little thick for your liking just add a little more water until your desired consistency is achieved. Likewise you can adjust the seasoning to your taste.
