Description

A much healthier alternative to regular mayo. This cashew mayo is creamy, rich, tangy, delicious and easy to make.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. mustard (yellow or dijon)
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 heaping tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup water

Instructions

  1. Soak cashews in hot water for 30 minutes. If you have a high-speed blender, like a Vitamix, soaking is optional. But, it will make the mayo that much creamier.
  2. Add cashews along with all other ingredients to blender and process until smooth and creamy.
  3. Stop and taste test: adding more apple cider vinegar for tanginess; lemon juice for acidity; salt for saltiness; and more water if you want it not so thick.
  4. Blend once more after making final adjustments. Pour into a jar or container and store in fridge until ready to use. It will keep for several days.

Equipment


Notes

Add a chipotle pepper in adobo sauce during the blending and it makes a great aioli.

If you have a nut allergy, use a 12 ounce box of firm or extra firm silken tofu.
