This is a real treat of a mayonnaise and super-easy to make into the bargain. You can add any flavour to it once it has been made. It lasts for a good week in the fridge, too. You can save your chickpeas for hummus or any of the other recipes in this book – it lasts about 3 or 4 days in the fridge. You can add lots of different flavours to the mayonnaise, such as chopped herbs, spices and more.

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
