Vegan Mayo Recipe
- ¼ cup aquafaba
- 1 tablespoon agave nectar or other sweetener of choice
- 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon mustard
- 1 cup canola oil or other neutral oil
- Add aquafaba, agave, apple cider vinegar, salt, and dijon mustard to a tall glass. Using an immersion blender, blend on high. While blending, slowly pour oil in, moving the immersion blender up and down to help mixture become thick and creamy.
- Continue pouring in remaining oil and blending until vegan mayo forms! This generally takes about 1-2 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning, if needed. Store in an airtight container or jar in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
