How to prepare homemade mayonnaise

We explain how to prepare homemade mayonnaise to make your dishes tastier and healthier by substituting industrial mayonnaise and we explain how to prevent it from cutting.


  • 1 egg
  • Pinch of salt
  • 10 g lemon juice
  • 200 ml olive oil


Mix everything in the blender at low power until emulsified.

How to avoid cutting?

One of the most common problems when making mayonnaise is that the mayonnaise is to cut. There are two main reasons for this:

  • Because the oil is added too quickly.
  • Because the ingredients are at different temperatures.

To avoid this, sRemove the egg from the refrigerator a while before preparing the mayonnaise. This will prevent it from being too cold.

Another trick is to add the oil little by little with a very fine trickle, without stopping to mix. In this way, the mixture will integrate little by little and will not be cut.

You can also use a clemon juice or a little cold water into the mixture. Both help the ingredients to integrate more easily.

It has been cut. Can it be fixed?

Once the mayonnaise has been cut, we always have the possibility of trying to fix it by adding a splash of cold water to the mixture and continue whisking until the water integrates with the sauce and, little by little, it takes consistency.
