Delicious, Quick and Easy Egg and Dairy-free Vegan Mayonnaise! 

It takes 5 minutes or so - all you need is a food processor or blender to make your own vegetarian and vegan mayo. 

Silken tofu is sold in large branches of most supermarkets, or find it in health food shops and Oriental grocers. Brands to look out for include Mori-nu; Blue Dragon; Clearspring -  sold in long-life cartons - or Taifun's fresh silken tofu.  

Serves: 
Makes approximately 375g
Time: 
5-10 minutes
Gluten free
No nuts
No sesame
Reduced fat
Reduced sugar
Ingredients: 
1 box firm silken tofu  OR 350g/12oz fresh silken tofu
3 tbsp lemon juice OR cider vinegar
½ tsp salt
½ tsp sugar OR 2 tsp agave syrup
1 tsp Dijon mustard
60ml/4tbsp plain oil, such as rapeseed
Method: 

 1. Drain the tofu in a sieve or colander then blend it until it is completely smooth. Halfway through blending, use a spatula to scrape down the sides and integrate any lumps. Blend again, making sure the tofu has lost its grainy texture and is smooth and shiny. 

 2. Add the lemon juice/cider vinegar, salt, sweetener and mustard. Blend again. 

3. Drizzle in the oil slowly and blend. If using a food processor you can do this while the motor is running. If using a goblet or hand blender you will need to stop it then drizzle in a bit of oil and repeat until the oil is completely integrated. Taste and add more salt/sweetener/mustard if desired - then blend again.

4. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. It will keep for several days. Mix it up with a spoon if it starts to separate.
