Add oil to a tall jar. Add garlic, lemon juice, egg, salt and pepper. Insert the immersion blender and blend, without moving the blender, for two minutes. When the mixture begins to thicken, move the immersion blender up and down until mayonnaise is emulsified.

And you can add a roasted eggplant for Babaganoush or a roasted red pepper for roasted red pepper mayo.
