🥘Ingredient Notes

  • Aquafaba – is the brine of cooked chickpeas or beans. I always use canned chickpea water, as it’s fool-proof. This is used as the vegan egg replacer. Here’s a list of aquafaba recipes ranging from pastas to desserts.
  • Oil – use a neutral oil such as canola, vegetable or sunflower. These are lighter oils and whip up wonderfully.
  • Lemon – acidity is needed to help the ingredients bind together and stabilise.
  • Mustard – I used whole seed french mustard as I love a bit of texture in my mayo. You can also use dijon or whatever mustard you please. Mustard is used for the taste.

🔪Step by Step Guide

Here’s how to make eggless mayonnaise in two easy steps;

Step 1 Add in aquafaba, lemon juice, salt and mustard. Whip together for approximately 1 min, until creamy.

Step 2 Add in oil via a very thin consistent stream, whilst continuously blending. Do this until all the oil is used and mayonnaise is achieved. 

I highly recommend watching this quick video to see how this mayonnaise comes together so easily.

💡What to serve with?

Dip air fryer corn ribs into this creamy eggless mayonnaise. It really does taste so good.

Or try mixing this mayonnaise with ketchup to make fry sauce. Generally this is 2:1 ratio (mayo:ketchup)

💭Pro Tips

  • Do not skimp on any of the steps. It is crucial to follow each step to achieve a thick and creamy vegan mayo.
  • Store this mayonnaise in an air-tight jar in the fridge for no more than approx. 10 days. This will vary due to different environmental conditions and usage.

Variations

The base ingredients for this vegan mayonnaise is aquafaba, oil and lemon. You can add flavourings as you desire. Some good options are;

  • Freshly chopped herbs, such as dill or rosemary. I like to add these in the beginning (only a small tsp). For garlic, I much prefer to make the best traditional Lebanese garlic sauce toum recipe.
  • Spices such as paprika, chilli flakes, or turmeric. Again add this as the beginning.
  • N.B., If you do opt to add optionals, this may change the colour of your mayo.

FAQ

Can I use vinegar instead of lemon?

Yes, vinegar can replace the lemon in the exact amount. Try ACV.

How to make mayo thick?

Do not pour all the oil in at one time. It is KEY to drizzle it in through a fine line pour to allow the emulsification happen. If you have a buildup of oil on top whilst mixing, stop pouring for 20 sec and allow it to blend in.

Does it matter what type of aquafaba I use?

Yes. Chickpea brine from other bean brine will yield a different colour and perhaps flavouring. I have used kidney bean brine and it was a ‘pinkish’ colour. I always use organic chickpea water when making this vegan mayonnaise.

My mayo is more yellow, is that ok?

Yes. The colouring will differ due to the ingredients you used. For example – dijon mustard vs whole grain mustard. Even down to different brands of products, will yield a different result.
