Lemony Chive Paleo Mayo

Lemony Chive Paleo Mayo | stupideasypaleo.com When it comes to mayo, I make no pretense for having the master, doesn’t fail basic recipe (that honor goes to the stellar Mel of The Clothes Make the Girl and Well Fed 2). I’ve only had this method go kaput once because yours truly was too impatient to wait for the ingredients to get all nice and cozy warm at room temperature before I tried to make the mayo emulsion. Oops. Have some patience, and it will all turn out okay. You can also use a stick (immersion) blender but I don’t own one because I’m the clumsiest person on the planet and well, yeah, exposed blades and I don’t mix!

All I did here was use Mel’s basic mayo recipe (here’s a video) and add a few simple ingredients to jazz it up. This went perfect as an accompaniment with my Grain-Free Paleo Zucchini Fritters.

  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

What’s your favorite mayo flavor?

Umami Mayo

Umami Mayo | stupideasypaleo.com Umami basically describes the savory taste present in foods like soy sauce (ick), mushrooms and even some veggies. This recipe is very simple to make: start with a batch of fresh olive oil mayo and then season it with coconut aminos and fish sauce to give it that umami flavor. Nice!

I follow Melissa Joulwan’s basic olive oil mayo recipe because well, she rules and so does her mayo recipe. You can find it here: The Secret to Homemade Mayo? Patience.

Prep time: 5 min     Wait time:  30-60 min    Makes: 1/4 cup

Ingredients for Umami Mayo

Directions for Umami Mayo

  1. Stir the plain olive oil mayo, coconut aminos and fish sauce together in a small bowl. Will keep in the fridge until the expiration date of the egg you used to make your mayo.
  2. Goes well with burgers, my Paleo Banh Mi Sliders or Paleo Fresh Spring Rolls.

Paleo Chipotle Lime Mayo

Chipotle Lime Mayo | stupideasypaelo.com Homemade olive oil mayo rocks my socks off. Nuf said.

I base my recipe on this one from Melissa Joulwan of The Clothes Make the Girl and add my own twist. I only used one chipotle…feel free to add another one but beware: chipotles are HOT. Taste after you add one and decide if it needs another. That being said, one gives my taste buds the perfect amount of smoky heat. YUM.

You can also omit the lime for straight up chipotle mayo.

Prep time: 10 min     Cook time: 0 min    Makes: 1 cup

Ingredients for Chipotle Lime Mayo

  • 1 cup olive oil mayo
  • 1 chipotle pepper
  • 1 tsp of adobo sauce from the chipotle pepper can
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice

Directions for Chipotle Lime Mayo

  1. In a food processor or blender, combine all the ingredients and blitz until smooth.
  2. I put mine in a fun squeeze bottle because it just looks cooler when I serve it up on my food.
  3. Goes well on pretty much everything, like these BLT Bites. Bacon and chipotle are like soul mates.
