Vegan Mayonnaise


Certainly is not easy to prepare a vegan mayonnaise at home, this hot solution is the best I could come up with, since, so prepared it can finally reach the consistency of the classic mayonnaise. As I can’t find this kind of mayonnaise in shops very often, I can be content, it is also very quick to prepare … I did a vegan sandwich to my husband and I have to say he was amazed, as he thought it was mayonnaise made of eggs! Can be also used to prepare coleslaw, to dress salads, to make sandwiches and bruschettas…well, try it out!

150 ml of corn oil
200 gr of soy cream (not the flavored one)
3/4 tablespoons of apple vinegar
20 drops of lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon of saffron powder or a bit of turmeric
20 gr potato starch

Blend all ingredients a few seconds and put them in a pan, on a heat. Leave 20/30 ml of the mixture: here we will dissolve, in cold, 20 gr of potato starch. Heat the first mixture and after a few minutes before it starts boiling add the cold mixture, stirring well with a wooden spoon. Boil it all a few seconds until you see the oil separating from the rest and the mayonnaise forming. Let it cool and filter. Once cold, if there are any lumps you can whisk it again; then, put it in the freezer for 1 hour … when it’s pretty cool is ready for use.
As a thickener you can also use 20 gr of flour, to be whisked together with all the other ingredients and then cook until the oil separates from the rest as explained before – more or less 2 / 3 minute of boiling.

    Hi Titti!! Soy cream is the very “fat” part of soy milk…is what is called in Italian “panna di soia”

    >>Certainly is not easy to prepare a vegan mayonnaise

    Nice recipe, thanks but I don’t understand this. It takes about 5min! Just blend oil and soya milk. Add boiled potatoes and a bit of passata and few more ingredients to give taste (ie. tabasco and garlic, Marmite, mustard etc….if one wants). What’s the problem?

    I’m not kidding. I did not like to waste my time in the kitchen (I’m a fruitarian now) but it really used to take me few minutes.

    Yours is a nice alternative, though.

    Hi Gio, thanks for your comment 🙂
    You’re right, there’s nothing difficult with this recipe, but this is what we want to show the the wanna-be vegans: that they don’t have to renounce to mayonnaise, because there’s an alternative. And actually more than one! This is what Stella meant saying that it’s not easy: it is easy once you got used to “new” ingredients and tricks, in other words if you have been vegan for a while. But for the new vegans, or as I said, wanna-be vegans, might be not so easy 🙂
