I used to love visiting the US to eat the really amazing vegan food that you can buy in most supermarkets. Israel has a higher percentage of vegans than there are in the US, but there are still a bunch of things missing. Good mayonnaise is one of those things. Soy mayonnaise is sold in Israel, but they are not like the vegenaise that you can buy in the US. They’re also really expensive.
Now there is no reason to go to the US any more, because I now make mayonnaise at home. It is crazy easy and comes out really yummy.
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
You can use different types of milk for this recipe. For Passover, I make my own almond milk, and it works well. If you are using Israeli soy milk, it's a bit sweet, so leave out the extra agave syrup.
- unsweetened vegan milk - 1/2 cup
- oil - 1 cup
- vinegar - 1 tablespoon
- agave syrup - 1 tablespoon
- lemon juice - 1 teaspoon
- salt - to taste
- Blend milk, oil, agave and vinegar together until thick
- Mix in lemon juice and salt
- That's it!
See how crazy easy it is? The first time I made it, it was amazing. I kept on going around the house showing everyone my creation. I even made everyone taste it. I know, mayonnaise isn’t exactly chocolate chip cookie dough. I’ve started using it in everything. I make vegan deli rolls and potato salad and things like that. It’s really great.
I’m totally going to try that!!
Thanks as always 🙂
It’s crazy easy, right? Enjoy!
Which “milk” did you use? soy, rice, almond? If you can use any of them, what is the difference in taste in the mayo? Thanks so much 🙂
Hi Maxine! During the year I use soy milk. For Passover, I use almond milk that I make myself. I haven’t tried other milks, but it should work more or less the same. If you do use a different milk, let me know how it comes out! Best, Rena
