Servings 1


  • 1 egg  large or extra-large
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 cup light tasting olive or avocado oil


  • Add all ingredients except oil to your food processor. Process until creamy (about 10 seconds).
  • With the food processor running, add a few drops of oil into the egg mixture. Every few seconds add a few more drops. Continue until the mixture starts to thicken.
  • Now you can do a slow drizzle. Stop pouring every once in a while to check that the oil gets fully incorporated.
  • Store leftovers in a covered container in the fridge for up to 1-2 weeks. Serve & enjoy!
