Are you a mayonnaise lover, but not quite a big fan of eggs?? Or maybe it’s the unhealthy fats, oils, and artificial preservatives that you are looking to cut out of the diet?
Making your own vegan egg-free mayo is quite simple and easy. One of the best things about making food from scratch is that you know exactly what ingredients your body is absorbing.
Just think about all the healthy additions you can use while cooking, like adding fresh lemon juice and healthy oils, and going homemade is well worth the time and effort.
Is Vegan Mayonnaise Healthier Then Regular?
Yes, egg-free mayonnaise is lower in saturated fat and cholesterol than classic mayonnaise. It's a better choice for folks with high cholesterol who are monitoring their intake or have allergies to eggs. Consider eggless mayonnaise as a dietary substitution that keeps your favorite recipes a part of your diet.
This egg-free recipe is also suitable for people on low-carb or ketogenic diet-friendly, and also contains about 20% less calories than conventional.
How To Make Mayonnaise At Home - Pro Tips
Making your own mayonnaise is actually quite simple, and requires minimal prep!
- You can use an immersion blender or a food processor, whichever you have on hand. But if you are interested in making sauces at home regularly, a blender is most helpful.
- Look for cold-pressed oils, or unrefined oils as they are known to be processed in minimal heat, retaining essential nutrients.
- To thicken or fix broken mayo, try using a small amount of the thin mayonnaise and emulsify with remaining oil. Then alternate the remaining broken mixture and oil. If that still doesn’t work, add more oil until correct consistency.
- Also, be careful as homemade tends to spoil quicker than the commercial brands. Store in an airtight glass container for best preservation.
In addition, homemade vegan mayonnaise is very inexpensive, believe it or not, it costs way more in stores as well as often being hard to find.
How long will Vegan Mayo last in the Fridge?
Without all the preservatives, the only downfall is the shelf life of this mayo, as with many homemade recipes. In an airtight container, mayo is good in the fridge for up to 1 week.
Once you try this delicious homemade egg-free mayonnaise version, you’ll never want to go back to the store-bought mayo again!
