Roasted Root Vegetable MayoPrincessFiona60First, this is not REAL mayonnaise as it has no eggs in it, but the technique and use are the same.
I did this the first time with carrots only, since then I've branched out to include other root vegetables, found the recipe in a local independent newspaper.
5 carrots, trimmed, rubbed with olive oil, coarse salt and fresh ground pepper
one clove of garlic, trimmed
Roast in a closed pan in a 375°F oven until tender. Allow to cool.
Using a stick blender, in a tall slender vessel add the garlic, a tablespoon of oregano, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and the carrots, mash well with blender and start adding in 1/4 cup olive oil at a time. Blend well with each addition. When you get to the 4th 1/4 cup, start dribbling it in, you want this to be thick. You may not use all of it.
This can be chilled and used like you would real mayo. The beet one is really good!3 stars
