This recipe was prepared using Braun’s MultiQuick 7 Hand blender with its food processor, and its 1.5-cup chopper attachments.
- 1/4 cup fresh spinach leaves
- 2 tbsp watercress leaves
- 2 tbsp flat-leaf parsley leaves
- 2 tbsp fresh tarragon, chopped
- 1 tbsp chopped fresh chives
- 2-3 tsp lemon juice, or to taste
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 recipe homemade mayonnaise
- 4 cold egg yolks
- 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 1 tsp Dijon or mustard
- 1 ½ cups vegetable oil
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 1 tbsp lemon juice, or to taste
- Rinse the spinach, watercress and parsley under cold water and put these into a medium saucepan. With the heat turned to medium, stir the leaves around until everything has wilted, then tip them into a colander and rinse under cold water to keep the color.
- Squeeze out excess moisture very carefully, thoroughly pressing and squeezing with a wooden spoon.
- Chop the fresh tarragon and fresh chives with Braun’s MultiQuick 7 1.5 cup-chopper attachment. Then transfer the cooked leaves, chopped tarragon, chopped chives and the already prepared mayonnaise into Braun’s MultiQuick 7 food processor attachment with chopping blade. Attach to the hand blender and blend until the mixture is silky smooth. Season with lemon juice and salt and pepper.
- Place the egg yolks, vinegar, salt and pepper and the mustard into Braun’s MultiQuick 7 food processor attachment with chopping blade. Attach the Hand blender and pulse once or twice to create a smooth purée.
- While the motor is running, add the vegetable oil and olive oil through the filling tube and the mixture will change consistency as you blend emulsifying into a thick, rich sauce. If the mayonnaise is too thick, you can easily fill a teaspoon of water through the filling tube and thin down the mixture.
- Then add lemon juice and salt and pepper, to taste.
- The mayonnaise can be served at once or kept in the fridge for up to 2 days.
Note: Make sure the food processor is thoroughly cleaned and dried before making the recipe.
