  1. Prepare your food processor with the blade attachment.
  2. Crack your egg in the food processor, then add your Dijon mustard and your garlic clove.
  3. Put the lid on, and start blitzing.
  4. As the mixture is processing, slowly add your oil. Don't add the oil too fast or else the mayonnaise can split.
  5. Once you have added about half of your oil, take the lid off and scrape down the sides. Put the lid back on and continue to add the other half of your oil while blitzing.
  6. When you have added all of the oil, the mayonnaise should be nice and thick.
  7. Add your lemon juice, then season with salt and pepper (be careful not to add too much salt). Blitz one more time to finish the aioli.

Recipe Notes

  • Light flavoured oils are the way to go when making mayonnaise. Strong oils like extra virgin olive oil can make your mayo taste bitter. 
  • You can use the whole egg when making the aioli in a food processor. However, if you don't have a food processor and you're going to make your aioli by hand, just use the egg yolk. 
  • Don't add your oil too fast as your mayo can split.  
  • You only need 1 egg or egg yolk, it takes a huge amount of oil just to outweigh one yolk so don't worry about using more than 1 unless you want to enrich your aioli.
