Oil-Free Vegan Mayo

Who knew that you could be a cooking oil-free vegan? Man,this has been such a fun addition to my cooking routine. I was actually dreading it, at first, when I began reading the “How Not to Die” book and cookbook.

Oil Free Vegan Mayo

I was like, “how am I going to saute foods with no cooking oil?” But, it has been no issue at all. I use my homemade veggie broth to saute with!

Store-Bought Vegan Mayo

If you’re like me, the first thing I thought about when going vegan was…MAYO! You can’t mess with my tater salad! LOL

So, I began buying store-bought vegan mayo. First couple of rounds were a fail because the mayo had soy in it. 

I finally found a soy/gluten/dairy free mayo…Just Mayo, but it has a lot of oil in it. EEK!

Homemade Mayo

Then, I was making homemade mayo with aquafaba and olive oil for a long time. Then, I learned that cooking oil is just empty calories that we really don’t need.

At this point, I knew that store-bought mayos were going to be a thing of the past for me.

Nut-Based Mayo

Since I had been making cashew sour cream all this time, I thought…”what if I mix this sour cream with whipped aquafaba to see what we get?”

What happened was pure yumminess!

Now, I know what you’re going to say. You or your child may have a nut allergy or intolerance so having cashew mayo is not going to work for you.

No worrries! I’ve got a hack for you!

To make this recipe nut-free, all you have to do is replace the cashews with sunflower seeds! YAY!

  • Click on this link to get the Cashew Sour Cream Recipe
  • After you have made the cashew sour cream, you will open the can of chickpeas up & drain all of the juice (aquafaba) from that can into a mixing bowl
  • With a hand-held mixer or stand mixer, whip the aquafaba until it has peaks, much like meringue. It will look very similar to meringue.
  • Then it is time to fold the cashew sour cream into the whipped aquafaba.
  • After it is all mixed together nicely, then add it to a clean mason jar. This should last in the fridge for 4-5 days.


Nut-Free Hack!
