Imitation Vegenaise™

I missed real mayonnaise – not sweet salad dressing – mayonnaise. That problem has now been solved.

Whilst travelling in the states, Vegenaise™ filled a hole in my heart, and sparked an insatiable lust that could never be satisfied by the stores in my home land. However, thanks to the power of ripping off other people’s ideas and copying them, I have this.

It is perfect.


2 & 1/4 cups oil (any cheap oil will do)
1 cup soymilk
2 teaspoons (adjust to taste) dijon mustard
4 teaspoons (adjust to taste) lime or lemon
1 to 1 & 1/2 teaspoon salt (adjust to taste)
1 tablespoon agave

Blend, drool, enjoy, become obsessed.

Makes two decent-sized jars worth. Just remember – don’t mess with the ratios otherwise it simply won’t work.

You can also add garlic, spring onions, chili, pepper or whatever you’d like, to make various kinds of aoili.
You can also use apple cider vinegar instead of lemon or lime, or fine sugar, rice syrup or maple syrup instead of agave. ♥

    • Potentially didn’t get the ratios correct and it was too oily rather than having the texture of mayo. This can happen. Mayo has a “magic moment” and this can also depend on the type of oil used.

    • Also, you have to follow the amounts exactly, this recipe doesn’t allow for any movement.

    I don’t do soy products. Can I substitute almond milk for the soy milk??

    • It does have a slightly different weight to it? So you may need to adjust the ratios slightly.
