I know what the oil industry has said about Coconut oil and it's health problems but recent research has shown that Coconut has many health benefits. I will be writing a blog about that soon on my other blogsite. Sharpshooter77.wordpress.com Here is a Gluten Free low GI mayo that will certainly help add coconut oil into your diet.
Gluten Free Mayo using Coconut Oil and Olive Oil
Servings: 1 1/2 cups
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
- 1 whole egg
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 tablespoon mustard
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
- 1/2 cup extra virgin coconut oil (melted if solid)
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
Place the eggs, mustard, lemon juice, salt, and pepper into a food processor or blender. Blend briefly for a few seconds.
I usually keep the blender/processor running on low speed. I mix my two oils together and start adding them a few drops at a time. Once you get started you can increase pouring until you slowly add to the mixture in a slow moving stream. Take your time and don't hurry this process. The mayonnaise will turn out better if you are patient.
Continue blending/processing until all the oil is used up. Make sure the oil is fully mixed before you stop the processing.
Discussion of the Ingredients:
Eggs - I use free-range eggs. Usually from our local farmer's market.
Mustard - You may want to adjust the mustard down if you are making something like Thousand Island Dressing.
Sea Salt - I am still trying to cut down on the salt used but mayo is not the same without it.
Pepper - If you do not have white pepper feel free to use the black pepper.
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil - I usually try to find the organic and make sure that I DO NOT use some form of coconut oil that is of the hydrogenated variety. If it is Extra Virgin and organic it will not be hydrogenated.
Olive Oil - Again I buy the extra virgin variety.
Comments: If you use this mayo in Chicken Salad, and other recipe's you will find that it is a great mayo. You can also use this to make a great many other salad dressings like Thousand Island Dressing, Ranch Dressing, etc. Recipe's to follow soon.
Be Blessed and have a great day.
