How Do I Make Vegan Honey Mustard Dressing
It’s so easy to make Vegan Honey Mustard. All you need are 3 simple ingredients, a bowl, and about 2 minutes of your time.
You can use dijon or yellow mustard to make this delicious dressing, but I prefer dijon. I like that earthy bite. And, it blends so well with the sweetness of maple syrup.
All you do is add the mustard, maple syrup, and garlic powder to a bowl and stir until its smooth. I realize garlic powder may sound a little weird. But, it really does add a little something strange and delicious all at once.
Optional: If you want to get all fancy and impress your friends you can turn this into a “vinaigrette.” Just add 1 Tbsp. of rice vinegar, red wine vinegar, white vinegar, or apple cider vinegar.
That’s it! Easy, quick, and delicious Vegan Honey Mustard Dressing.
Is Honey Vegan
Because it is from an animal it would not be considered truly vegan. But, there are different thoughts and opinions among many vegans about the ethics of eating honey. The majority of those thoughts and opinions center around how it’s harvested.
There are also people who consume what is called a whole-food, plant-based diet and are not vegan. This means they consume no animal products and it’s usually primarily for health reasons. But, on occasion, some may use honey as a sugar replacement for recipes, coffee, etc.
At the end of the day, it is up to each individual to research and come to their own conclusion.
If you choose to use actual honey for this recipe it would no longer technically be considered vegan honey mustard. But, plant-based honey mustard.
Either way, it’s delicious and much better than the store-bought dressings loaded with oil and fat.
