Servings: Makes about 1 cup of vegan mayo
- 1/2 cup unsweetened soy milk (or any plant-based milk of your choice)
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
- 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup neutral-flavored oil (such as grapeseed or avocado oil)
- In a mixing bowl or a blender, combine the unsweetened soy milk, apple cider vinegar or lemon juice, Dijon mustard, salt, and granulated sugar. Whisk or blend until well combined.
- Slowly drizzle in the oil, starting with a few drops at a time, while continuously whisking or blending the mixture. This slow addition of oil helps emulsify the vegan mayo and create a creamy consistency.
- As you continue to add the oil, gradually increase the drizzle to a thin, steady stream while whisking or blending continuously. This process should take a few minutes until all the oil is incorporated and the vegan mayo becomes thick and creamy.
- Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed, adding more salt or sugar if desired.
- Transfer the vegan mayo to a jar or airtight container and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow it to thicken further and develop its flavors.
- Use the vegan mayo as a delicious spread on sandwiches, as a base for dressings, or as a versatile condiment in your favorite recipes.
