  • 1/2 cup macadamias
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil


  • Place the macadamias and water in a high-speed blender and blend for 2-3 minutes until thoroughly combined. Add the mustard, lemon juice and salt and blend to combine. With the motor running, add the oil in a thin, steady stream until the mixture thickens. Initially it won’t be as thick as a traditional mayonnaise, but will thicken further with refrigeration. Season to taste with extra lemon juice and salt if desired.
  • Serve with sweet potato chips, sprinkled with coriander and chilli flakes.
