This 5-minute plant-based mayonnaise is a homemade, vegan and oil-free version of store-bought mayo. Tastes just like real mayo!
Why I love this Oil-Free Vegan Mayonnaise
Dietary needs — this vegan mayo is dairy-free, plant-based, oil-free, gluten-free, and sugar-free
Quick and easy — it literally takes 5 minutes to make this mayo. Just throw everything into a food processor and blend!
Oil-free sub for store-bought mayo — store-bought vegan mayos don't have eggs, but they often replace the eggs with oils that aren't so good for you. This plant-based mayo recipe is thick and creamy without any oil.
Silken Tofu: tofu is the base of the mayo - it's what makes it creamy. Silken tofu is ideal because it is already semi-creamy
Tahini: tahini adds a bit of nuttiness. You could sub another nut or seed butter or omit the tahini altogether if you don't have any
White Wine Vinegar: vinegar is important to create that classic mayo tang. If you don't have white wine vinegar, use apple cider vinegar or even lemon juice
Maple Syrup: for a fruit-sweetened version you can use date syrup, but this will make the mayo a pinkish color
Mustard: Dijon is ideal, but yellow mustard would work too
Liquid Aminos or Tamari: this is for the salty flavor. Liquid aminos are my go-to sauce, but tamari is another great gluten-free option. Or, if you don't need a gluten-free option, you can use soy sauce
Spices: onion powder & garlic powder
