A delicious mayo which is somewhat less fat than the regular – and which of course can be seasoned to taste exactly as you like.
1 package silken tofu (300 gr)
2 dl oil – neutral or with a taste that you like in mayo
3 tbsp applecider vinegar
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes (Optional)
2 tsp dijon mustard
2 tsp of vegan bouillon powder (Optional)
1 pinch of salt – like Kala Namak / black himalayan salt
Maybe a little spice to taste. Some use a small pinch of curry in the basic mayo.
Place all the ingredients except the oil in a food processor and blend until they are mixed completely and the silken tofu is creamy and uniform in consistency.
Add the oil a little at a time while blending until it all is incorporated.
Season to taste – maybe you would like a little more salt, vinegar or mustard?
Now you can use your mayo as it is – or adding various flavors if you like. For instance. split into portions and try some different sesonings.
Some of our favorites are:
- chili – fresh or dried
- chipotle – either powder or canned
- smoked paprika
- finely zested lemon peel (Replace like the applecider vinegar with lemon juice)
- various herbs, eg. rams, chives, coriander, dill
When the mayo has been refrigerated a while it will set a little due to. the silken tofu.
We use the mayo everywhere we would otherwise have used an egg-based mayo, but also where we previously would use butter on bread – not with sweets, there we use different nut butters – but e.g.. as a spread under simple delicious veggies as cucumber, tomato or potato, and drizzled well with chopped herbs – yummm. Good for sandwiches and bread where you use fried tofu or vegan/vegetarian meatballs, mushrooms or seitan'meat '.
Season to taste with additional apple cider vinegar or vinegar powder, some sugar, a little salt and maybe. celeriac seeds and use it for coleslaw.
