Low-Fat Vegan Mayo with Omega-3s and Probiotics!
Ever since I was a child, mayonnaise was my favorite condiment. Yep, when other kids were eating ketchup with their fries, I asked for mayo. I slathered it on my sandwiches, my burgers, my salads and pretty much anything else I could get away with. I remember my mom used to call it “white death” when she was dieting, which was like always. Anyway, then I became plant-based and there went my love affair with mayonnaise. But wait… there was vegan mayonnaise! Yessireebob. I have eaten my share of Veganaise, that’s for sure. But no more. It’s just got so much oil in it, I can’t do it. What’s a mayo-loving vegan to do? Make your own!
What’s special about this mayo besides being low in fat is that it’s high in omega-3 fatty acids from all the chia seeds in it AND it even has probiotics from the miso. Can’t go wrong with this one! Does it taste exactly like store-bought mayo? It’s pretty close, but the texture is different, of course, without all that oil. A different mouth-feel for sure. But it sure is yummy! I do not miss the other mayos AT ALL. I usually make a batch of this once a week and use it in all sorts of ways. It’s a great base for dressings and it’s good as a dip or, traditionally, on sammiches. Check it out!
