Mayonnaise – Recipe

 

The quark-linseed oil cream makes an excellent base for a healthy mayonnaise that is every bit as good as the real thing.
This is the basic mayonnaise recipe from Dr Johanna Budwig’s Oil Protein Cookbook.

  • 3 tbsp cold-pressed linseed oil
  • 3 tbsp quark
  • 3 tbsp milk (or 6 yoghurt)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • and/or 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar,
  • tbsp made mustard smooth or seeded,
  • Pinch salt.

Blend oil and quark very thoroughly then stir in the rest of the ingredients.
Use to top raw veggies or any salad, have on top a slice of bread or as a sandwich filling, use as a dip or as a relish or chutney with a bean dish or curry, use with a baked potato or mash – brilliant with salad potatoes.

Variations
Add in individually or any combination of the following:

  • Chopped cornichon/pickled gherkins/dill pickles
  • Chopped capers,

I see there is worldwide support for the Budwig protocol through various forums. This website shares information that makes it easier to follow the Budwig Diet in the UK and keep it as close as possible to Johanna Budwig’s original diet. Linseed oil and ground linseed has certainly helped me, to take more control of my own health and seeing my health improve by doing so. This is why I feel this protocol needs to be more widely known. This Budwig diet is too good not to share. I hope it helps you as much as it has helped me. I highly recommend Flax Farm for all of the products I use for my recipes.
