Easy Vegan Tofu Mayonnaise is easy to make, oil-free, gluten-free, nut-free, and much healthier than regular mayo. Perfect for salads, sandwiches, and wraps! Just 2 minutes and 5 ingredients are required.
I have always loved mayonnaise and still do. But, trying to find a healthy one is a bit of task. So, I made my own out of cashews several years ago and quickly became one of the most popular recipes on my blog.
However, some people can’t do nuts and asked me to come up with another alternative. And, I’m happy to introduce you to my easy vegan tofu mayonnaise!
I have to say this is without a doubt my favorite vegan mayo. Silken tofu provides the base with just 4 other ingredients rounding out the recipe: lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, and garlic powder. Salt should be added per your taste.
You can use this mayo anywhere you would use regular mayo. And, you won’t feel like a big grease ball after indulging a bit. It’s fresh, clean, and ready in less than 5 minutes.
It’s time to make your own vegan mayonnaise at home and forget the store-bought brands! Yes, it is possible. Bonus? This vegan mayo recipe does not use oil, vegan egg replacements, or even cashews. You simply will not believe it.
