Super easy, delicious and simple, this mayo can be flavored to suit.
1 cup
  • 4 oz of silken tofu
  • 2 teaspoons of fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons of dijon mustard
  • 1 cup olive oil (a blend of coconut, avocado and macadamia oil works well also)
  • salt to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  1. Combine the tofu, lemon juice and mustard in a blender. Mix until the tofu is smooth. A stick blender will also work well for this.
  2. While the blender is going, slowly drizzle the olive oil little by little into the blender. The mayo will emulsify and thicken.
  3. Once all the oil is added and emulsified, add salt to taste and blend again.
  4. Now, the mayo can be flavored to taste or kept plain. For garlic mayo, add two cloves of crushed garlic and blend. Alternatively roasted garlic can also be used for a sweeter flavor. Other popular flavors include wasabi, herbs, sesame, blue cheese, honey, peppercorn, chipotle, curry, smoked paprika, caper and sun dried tomato.
  5. Serve! The garlic mayo will keep for two weeks a sealed jar in the refrigerator, longer if plain.  Enjoy!
