{Recipe} Vegan Mayo

The other day I really wanted a sandwich. I had all these great Italian meats and some delicious bread on hand, but when I went to put it all together I realized I was missing something key: mayonnaise.


A quick glance in the fridge told me I was also out of eggs, so my usual mayo recipe was out. Don’t you hate when the holidays totally kill your fridge like that? So like a good girl I dug through my pantry and quickly threw together my go-to vegan mayo.


That’s when I realized – I’ve never shared this recipe with anyone! It’s actually the secret ingredient in another super secret sauce I make (which is still super secret 😉 ), so I’ve guarded it pretty closely…until now. Luck you, huh?


I stock up on shelf stable tofu (the kind that come in boxes and can live in the pantry instead of the refrigerator), so I always have the ingredients on hand to make this whenever a mayo emergency hits.

Good thing, too, because it saved lunch on that day. 🙂

Mayo emergencies. They’re real.

Vegan Mayo
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: vegan, condiment
Serves: apx 2 cups
  • 1 12oz block of silken tofu
  • 2 Tbs apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp salt (Kosher)
  • 4-6 Tbs olive oil or neutral flavored oil
  1. Place tofu, vinegar, onion and garlic powders and salt into a blender and combine on low speed.
  2. While the blender is still going, drizzle in the oil.
  3. Continue to blend until smooth.
I recommend using regular olive oil, not extra virgin if you want a more neutral flavor.



Do you have any secret go-to condiment recipes? Am I the only weird one?

  2. Wow! I scream out loud as I read this… Everybody totally needs this vegan mayo recipe. This is such a brilliant idea and I can enjoy my meal with less guilt 🙂

    • Haha, right? I add it to things and I think, “it’s just extra protein” because it really is!

  3. The secret ingredient is revealed! Muahahaha

  4. Thanks for the recipe, it’s quite different. One of my favourite Mayo Recipes contains condensed milk, vinegar, mustard powder and salt. It’s easy to prepare as there is no need for a blender and it tastes great.

    • I’ve never encountered mayo made with condensed milk! I’ll have to give it a try sometime.
