LCHF – Condiment – Yoghurtnaise (Alternative Mayonnaise)
Mayonnaise – some people can’t stand it, other people smother their food with it.
I was one of those people who enjoy it on food like salad and fish fingers/cakes. When one starts on a LCHF
diet lifestyle you start to look at what different ingredients are in food. Mayonnaise is one of those foods that contains sugars and other goodies that might not be what you are supposed to be having – so I thought about what other alternatives there may be… and I started to experiment…
I introduce to you my version of mayonnaise – I call it Yoghurtnaise…
Now as you have probably gathered by the name the main ingredient is Yoghurt. I only use Greek Style Plain Yoghurt (Double Cream or High Fat). Now depending on which brand you use will determine the taste, in terms of bitterness. Check out the “Yoghurt Shoot Out” post coming soon!
- Greek Style Yoghurt (about 4x Tablespoons)
- Lemon Juice (about 2x Teaspoons)
- Mustard Power (1/2 Teaspoon)
- Mixed Herbs (to flavor / optional)
- Salt (to flavor)
- Cayenne Pepper (optional)
Dish Yoghurt into bowl and add Lemon Juice and Mustard Power. Mix well. I then added the salt, about 1/4 teaspoon, and mixed well again. For added flavor I like adding some Mixed herbs (for flavor) and Cayenne pepper (for bite).
I am sure that if I could get Onion Powder somewhere it would go well with it – but I cannot seem to find it in any retail shop…
Anyway experiment and see what other alternatives you can make 🙂 and do share!
