Mayonnaise is a staple in most households. It is incredibly versatile, not just for sandwiches, burgers, and wraps, but it is my favorite egg replacer in baking and is a fantastic base for dressings and dips.
Traditional mayo made with eggs comes with some pretty low vibration components like saturated fat and cholesterol. Additionally, eggs are a prevalent food allergen, and unless you have chicken animal companions, the eggs you’re eating are probably routed in cruelty which also impacts the environment.
It’s a good thing that this all-American condiment is incredibly simple to make from all plants!
Tools Immersion Blender
- 1/4 cup aquafaba (the liquid/brine from cooked chickpeas)
- 1/2 tsp ground mustard
- 1/4 tsp high-quality sea salt to taste
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 3/4-1 cup sunflower oil*
*You can venture into other oils; however, you will want something neutral like sunflower or avocado unless you are going for a unique taste.
- Add aquafaba, ground mustard, sea salt, and apple cider vinegar to a tall glass jar. Blend on high with an immersion blender.
- With the immersion blender at its highest speed, slowly stream in the oil over 1-2 minutes. Doing so supports the emulsion process.
- Toward the end, move the immersion blender up and down to incorporate a little air. If it’s looking too thin, add more oil. The more oil you add, the creamier, thicker, and denser the texture will become.
- Taste and adjust flavor as needed.
- Use immediately or transfer to a sealed container in the refrigerator until cold. It will thicken even more in the fridge. You can store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks (sometimes longer). Mayo is not freezer-friendly.
No matter how you use your mayo, don’t forget to chew each bite at least 30 times!
