This recipe fills a pint mason jar about 3/4 full. Glad the slow addition of oil made the recipe better for you.

The next time I make it I might a pinch of both onion and garlic powder. I tried a 1/4 tsp of garlic powder one time and the flavor of garlic was too noticeable. Maybe a pinch will be good.

Hey, I tried your suggestion about adding the olive oil very slowly. It definitely turned out more like real mayo -- nice and thick! My recipe was slightly different. I used a whole egg, mustard, 1 cup of olive oil, and then added the lemon juice at the end as recommended. It makes a cup of mayo for me. I am still not convinced I would use it on a sandwich, but I made a whole batch of wicked good curried chicken salad with it, enough to last a week, and I still have half a batch of mayo left!

I make my own mayo in a blender. You control the ingredients and it costs pennies to make. Takes less than a minute.

1 whole egg
1/4 cup oil
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbs sugar (I prefer agave)

Blend well

Slowly add another 1/2 cup oil,
then
1 Tbs lemon juice

Slowly add another 1/2 cup oil

The trick to thick mayo is to add the additional oils very slowly.

Also, feel free to try different dry seasonings like paprika, onion powder, cayenne.

I'm sorry your mayo didn't come out - thanks for the laughs though :)

I like to use greek yogurt and/or mustard as mayo substitutes.

Sorry to hear that your mayo recipe failed! I don't eat grains or bread, so my mayo always goes in things like chicken salad... I can see how homemade isn't so good for sandwiches and stuff! As for your recipe, if I were making it, I would just omit the mayonnaise. That's usually my approach. I'm not the world's best chef, though, so my advice might not be worth much! emoticon

Here's the recipe I was trying to "clean" up but keep low fat and low cal. Feel free to share your thoughts:

One Dish Chicken and Rice Casserole:
Ingredients
10 3/4 oz Campbell's Healthy Request 98% Fat-Free Cream Of Chicken Soup
1/2 cup fat-free skim milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/3 cup mayonnaise (I used Hellman's Light Mayonnaise)
2 cups chopped cooked chicken
1/2 cup chopped onions
1 cup Broccoli Florets or chopped broccoli, Frozen (original recipe called for 1 cup frozen peas)
1/2 cup chopped green or red bell pepper (the original recipe called for 1/4 cup & I used green)
2 cup cooked brown rice (the original recipe called for white rice)
1 cup shredded reduced fat Sargento shredded cheddar cheese, divided

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350F. Blend soup, milk, salt, pepper and mayonnaise in a medium bowl. Combine chicken, onion, broccoli, bell pepper and rice in a large bowl; mix gently. Gently fold soup mixture into chicken mixture to combine. Fold in half the Cheddar. Spray a medium casserole dish with cooking spray. Spoon in chicken mixture. Sprinkle top of casserole with remaining Cheddar. Bake uncovered until top is golden brown, about 25 minutes.

*If you make ahead: Prepare the casserole 1 day ahead, cover loosely and refrigerate until ready to bake. Let stand at room temperature while oven heat, then bake at 350 F for 30 minutes.

Thank you everyone for your suggestions. I forgot about the low fat Greek yogurt. Has anyone tried substituing that for mayo?

Lilyputin, thanks for trying out that recipe. Sorry to hear that it was a disappointment.

I am alive and well. So I braved my blender again and made a new batch, using garlic powder. ICK! The texture and the look of it is fine. It feels really oily in my mouth and is just not what mayo tastes like. My family will never eat it. I put it in the fridge and will try it in a pasta salad I'm making this afternoon, but I'm not sure any amount of spices and ingredients will make it good.

I made mayo just now and it tastes terrible! Is it possible for the garlic to be bad? The cloves were dry on the outside but had a spongy layer before I got to the solid core. Eww! Should I try again or am I wasting good olive oil?

Oh no! I googled garlic and what if I have botulism! Then I googled botulism. Oh dear oh dear...

I use Hellmans with Canola oil - it doesn't have HFCS. :)

emoticon for that one. I never would have thought to look in Spark Recipes for a mayo recipe. I am going to have to try that one too, hope it is easy.

I found a Spark recipe called "Olive Oil Mayonaise." I think I will try it today.

I haven't found a truly "clean" mayo yet. But you can make it easily with a blender, an egg, some oil, and some lemon juice. Some recipes use a whole egg, some use just yolks or whites, so I'm sure you can find one that fits your needs. It'll be thinner than the stuff you get in store, but that's because it doesn't have all those unpronounceable "thickeners"!

Hi Ya'll,

swap your mayo for plain low fat or greek yoghurt.

Hi! I'm fairly new to the team. I signed up long time ago, but have't posted. I haven't completely 100% coverted to clean eating, although I have been reading labels and watching what I eat.

Anyway, is there a clean mayo? I sometimes use reduced fat or low fat Hellmann's mayo in a chicken rice casserole recipe, but I know it contains HFCS and other ingredients. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
Marguerite
