Easy Low-FODMAP Mayonnaise Recipe; Gluten-free, Dairy-free
April 7, 2019
I love getting back to the basics. Simple ingredients. The true taste shining through.
This recipe for low-FODMAP mayonnaise is all about that. Easy and delicious.
Using fresh, all-natural ingredients means this low-FODMAP mayonnaise tastes so much better than store-bought, and avoids added preservatives and soybean oil. Try it with extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil, for a healthy variation. You will want to eat this low-FODMAP mayo right off your spoon!
I incorporate this low-FODMAP Mayonnaise in my low-FODMAP Deviled Eggs recipe, and it adds a depth and freshness to the flavor that is absolutely amazing. Or I spread it on low-FODMAP Multigrain Sandwich Bread for the perfect low-FODMAP lunch.
Note: this low-FODMAP mayo results in a light yellow colored mayonnaise due to the egg yolk and mustard, not the white color seen in store- bought varieties.
Be healthy and happy,
