Homemade Mayonnaise Roundup

Homemade Mayonnaise Link Roundup

Homemade Mayonnaise RoundupI just learned a brand new tip for making mayonnaise!! I was using my stick blender and the mayonnaise came out soupy. Again. It thickens slightly after chilling, so I wasn't too worried about it, but my brain started whirring and I was thinking about how there are egg whites in the recipe I use, and how the whites are almost certainly being whipped to some extent and then I wondered if my stick blender was on low or high speed. It turns out that it was on low speed… so I turned it to high and started to pulse the soupy mayonnaise and voilà! What was soupy turned thick and creamy!

Today I have a roundup of mayonnaise recipes. Please note that I have not vetted each and every recipe for its GAPS legal status, so please double check ingredients. All of these recipes are; however, from real food bloggers so you should find them all using healthy real food ingredients.

Enjoy!

Chipotle Lime Mayonnaise with Butter Fried Chicken

Chipotle Lime Mayonnaise

Chipotle Lime Mayonnaise with Butter Fried ChickenMayonnaise is a magical food. I say that because I absolutely love how eggs [affiliate link] and oil and an acid mix together and become something so creamy and delicious.

My husband found a chipotle mayonnaise on sale at the store which was free after using a coupon but of course it contained icky things like soybean oil and other weird stuff. It was because of that mayonnaise however, that I decided to try making my own. It has become our new favorite mayonnaise.

Chipotle Lime Mayonnaise

Place all ingredients except for the chipotle powder into a tall jar in the order listed.

Using a stick blender, slowly pulse repeatedly until ingredients begin to emulsify. When the mixture is mostly white and creamy you can move the stick blender around a little faster.

After the mayonnaise is done, you can add extra lime juice if you wish a tarter flavor to your mayonnaise. Adding more lime juice will make the mayonnaise thinner.

You'll need to add chipotle powder to your personal liking. The mayonnaise reduces the heat significantly, so you may be able to add more than you normally would.

What I like to do is to remove a portion of the mayonnaise that I know we'll use for the meal, and flavor it and leave the rest plain. So I might take 1/2 cup of mayonnaise and add 1 teaspoon chipotle powder, taste and see how I like it.

This is my favorite stick blender. It's a Kitchenaid, and this is my Amazon affiliate link: Kitchenaid 2-Speed Hand Blender with blender cup

Chicken Salad Coconut Flour Tortilla Wrap

Chicken Salad Wraps Gluten Free Grain Free

 

Chicken Salad Coconut Flour Tortilla Wrap

We're always making loads of meat stock on GAPS, and that means lots of leftover cooked meat. We also add egg yolks into our soup to make it more nourishing, and that means lots of leftover egg whites. This recipe will help you to use some of the boiled chicken and also some of those egg whites.

Chicken Salad

  • 1-1/2 cups boiled chicken, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, coarsely diced
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 2 small ribs celery, coarsely diced
  • Homemade Mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 10 black olives, sliced (optional)
  • 1 avocado, diced (optional)

Add all ingredients together and mix in enough mayonnaise so the chicken is creamy.

At this point, you can eat the Chicken Salad like Tunafish Salad. We often eat this by the bowl, or on a bed of lettuce. If you want to go all out, try making the “tortillas”! 🙂

Coconut Flour Tortillas or Crepes

Next up, the tortillas. Okay, I have to admit growing up in Arizona in a neighborhood where Mexican grandmothers made flour tortillas from scratch every day… these are more like crepes… and you cannot fold them up exactly like flour tortillas, but hey, I can't have gluten and these are pretty darned close!

The recipe is simple, and as I mentioned, will help you use up those extra egg whites. The recipe is from Tropical Traditions. You'll need two egg whites for each tortilla. Here are the ingredients:

I omitted the baking powder, because it is not recommended on GAPS, and they came out perfectly fine. They are supposed to be completely flat anyway.

I've tried making the tortillas with coconut milk and with water. The ones with coconut milk for me were a bit thicker, while the ones made with water were thinner and smaller.

Just mix all the ingredients together. I just used my Magic Bullet and I used my cast iron round griddle which I used to make flour tortillas on for 20 years. Heat the griddle and grease it well with butter or coconut oil.

Pour the batter onto the griddle and smooth it around with the back of a spoon until it is smoothed thinly across the griddle in a round shape.

I found a stainless steel pie spatula (as opposed to plastic) worked out really great when it came time to flip as I was able to slip the thin spatula under the tortilla and flip it over.

Be sure to wait until the edges are browned before flipping or the tortilla will break apart on you. If it breaks apart, chances are you didn't wake for it to cook long enough.

You only need to cook it for a few seconds once you flip it over.

My husband thought these were pretty good. He agreed, not exactly flour tortillas… but a close enough substitute.
