Easy Oil Free Vegan Mayo

At the beginning of our health journey we found that there was so much wrong with the food we were eating that we just eliminated everything. As we continue, we are slowly finding things that are still in alignment with our values as it relates to food. Sandwiches was one of the things we eliminated, which was pretty upsetting at first since they are so easy to put together and perfect for busy day lunches. Now, with this oil free vegan mayo recipe we are able to enjoy them again.

What is a sandwich without it? Really. I love mayo, almost as much as I love ranch dressing. I tried making mayo with nuts and it seems that I could never get the flavor right. We did eventually start buying the Follow Your Heart Vegenaise which is vegan but still has a ton of oils.

Then I saw a youtube video of a girl using tofu instead of nuts. I’m not a big tofu eater but I do enjoy it from time to time. It is a whole soy product and the processing method has gone back many many years. I do however feel it should be eaten in moderation. So I thought that I could play around with it and see if I could use this as a healthier alternative to the vegan mayo. And you can see that it worked!

This oil free vegan mayo recipe is seriously delicious, taste just like mayonnaise. It’s low fat and high in protein. Now I can put as much as I want and not have an ounce of guilt. Who doesn’t love that?! Serious you have to give it a try, it will be totally worth it.

Since discovering this, I haven’t used the store bought mayo. It so simple to make too, literally just throw everything in your blender and blend until smooth and creamy. It stores up to 3 weeks in the fridge, maybe longer, I’m not sure since it’s gone before then.

More About Tofu…

Tofu is made from soy beans and is naturally gluten free and low in calories. It contains no cholesterol and is good source of protein. Why? It contains all nine essential amino acids which is hard to find with most plant food. It is also an excellent source of iron and calcium and the minerals manganese, selenium and phosphorous. In addition, tofu is a good source of magnesium, copper, zinc and vitamin B1. Tofu does contains phytoestrogens, which have a similar structure to the female hormone oestrogen and therefore mimic the action of oestrogen produced by the body. I recommend to eat in moderation.

When buying tofu make sure to get organic and look at the ingredient label. You never know what they might hide in there, all that should be in it it soy beans anything else in my opinion is unnecessary. I will usually make 14 ounce at a time (one package), unless I make a dish that requires a lot more like potato salad.

  • Hi, I just made vegan no oil mayo for the first time from the Forks Over Knives cookbook. When I finished, wasnt quite pleased with the result. Searching on the net, found your recipe and made some minor adjustments to the FOK recipe by adding the lemon juice, almond milk and 2 tablespoons agave nectar. Outstanding ! Thanks !

    • I would say at least a week but possible more. Sorry for the uncertainty we just eat it too fast to really find out :)

    • If you can’t find a medium firm/firm tofu and only have soft or silken to choose from, I would go with soft. Silken is the softest of the two. Enjoy!
