It’s happening: Easy vegan mayo that’s perfectly creamy, thick, and tangy! You can do this.
This recipe requires just 5 minutes, 6 ingredients, and 1-bowl to prepare.
The initial version of this recipe was made with a hand mixer, but I’ve since found that it doesn’t work for everyone, especially depending on the power of your mixer! So I’ve done more testing and now have a safe and effective way to get perfect mayo every time.
The base is aquafaba – the liquid/brine leftover in a can of chickpeas – which is blended with apple cider vinegar, brown rice syrup, mustard powder, and sea salt for flavor. Next comes a neutral oil for creaminess and body, which is streamed in while mixing. For oil, we found sunflower to work best, but avocado works too (just produces slightly less thick mayo).
I hope you all LOVE this mayo! It’s:
Easy to make
This mayo is the beginning of so many wonderful things to come. It’s going to be perfect for aiolis, salad dressings, sandwiches, and more. It’s especially perfect on our Vegan BLT!
