What is vegan mayo made of?
At the root of most vegan mayonnaises, there’s generally plant-based milk which is often unsweetened soy. When combined with the remaining ingredients, this acts as the emulsifier, binding the mayo together – much like an egg does in non-vegan mayo.
After this, oil, neutral-tasting vinegar and salt are added, perhaps with the addition of mustard, herbs, spices, garlic or maple syrup for seasoning.
If you’re now hungry for something loaded with vegan mayo, then check out this tasty recipe from Aliza for vegan garlic mayo and mushroom wraps – your lunches will never be the same again.
