Our answer

Nigella's Golden Garlic Mayonnaise (from AT MY TABLE) is quick and easy to make as it uses a stick blender. The golden hue comes from the addition of saffron threads, which also add flavour.

The recipe uses rapeseed oil for preference. This should be cold-pressed rapeseed oil, rather than the expeller-pressed type usually labelled as vegetable oil (or Canola oil). Usually for mayonnaise a mild-flavoured oil is used (such as grapeseed), but here the peppery flavour of the rapeseed oil balances the flavour of the saffron. Regular olive oil is the best alternative to the rapeseed oil.
