Learn how to make the best homemade Vegan Mayonnaise in less than 3 minutes with this quick and easy recipe! This dairy-free and egg-less mayo is perfect for salads, sandwiches and burger or as a sour cream dip for fries, hasselback potatoes and other snacks!
The barbecue season has begun! Therefore people start making cold pasta salads, potato salads, etc. for which mayonnaise is needed as an ingredient more often. But also as a dip for French fries and other snacks, mayo is always perfect! So you should always have this recipe on hand when you need a quick plant-based alternative.
Since traditional mayonnaise recipes are made with eggs, it is not vegan. There are also store-bought vegan alternatives available, however, they often contain additives such as preservatives or artificial flavors. That’s why I prefer to make my own homemade vegan mayonnaise! Not forget to mention that the vegan alternatives are usually quite expensive, so you can even save money with this homemade version!
