1 tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1/3 cup almond oil or extra-light olive oil

2 red witlof, leaves separated

2 yellow witlof, leaves separated

halved lengthways

almond oil, extra, to serve

¼ cup flaked almonds, toasted

1 Place egg yolks, lemon juice and mustard into a small food processor. Process until combined.

Continue adding hot water, a little at a time, until mayonnaise has reached a thick, pouring cream consistency.
