Soy & Egg Free Mayonaise [Mayo]
« on: March 05, 2010, 07:19:02 AM »

  Also, has anyone found a good egg and soy free mayo?  I found a recipe here http://thepioneerwoman.com/tasty-kitchen/recipes/special-dietary-needs/vegetarian/marcona-almond-mayonnaise/  but have not felt well enough to make it (I am still in the trenches of morning sickness).

Bump!  The recipe linked to above calls for marcona almonds..... Anyone know if regular almonds would work as well? Or, better yet, have a tried and true vegan, soy free mayo? I use it to make dressings and such and we really miss it.

Best Vegan Mayonnaise: Avocado and Basil Mayo Recipe

For most of us, there's no denying that mayonnaise makes everything better. And if you make healthy, homemade mayonnaise using extra-virgin olive oil, organic eggs, and other simple ingredients, you can continue making everything better with mayonnaise without compromising your health.

If eggs aren't your thing, a great alternative to egg-based mayonnaise is the following vegan mayo made with avocados and basil.

Avocados are abundant in healthy fat (mostly monounsaturated), fiber, potassium, and folate. Avocados are one of nature's best sources of lutein, a natural antioxidant that is needed for healthy eyes and skin.

Basil is rich in volatile oils that have natural anti-inflammatory properties. Basil is also an excellent dietary source of vitamin K, fiber, iron, calcium, beta-carotene, and magnesium, making it one of the most nutrient-rich herbs that you can eat.

Bottom line: When combined in the following vegan mayo recipe, avocados and basil provide loads of flavor and nutrient-density; enjoy this avocado-basil mayo recipe - it's the best vegan mayo we've ever tried.

Avocado and Basil Mayonnaise Recipe

Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

2 ripe avocados, halved, pitted, scooped out of skins, and cubed
Large handful of fresh basil leaves
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons fresh lemon or lime juice
1 garlic clove, peeled and minced
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Directions:

1. Combine basil, garlic, and a pinch of sea salt in a small food processor and blend until ingredients form a paste.

2. Add avocados and process until smooth. Blend in the oil and lemon or lime juice, and then season with sea salt and pepper.

Use this delicious avocado and basil mayonnaise in place of regular mayonnaise - it's particularly tasty in whole grain sandwiches with tomato and a fried egg. It also makes a wonderful dip for baked crackers.

I use this recipe for my son who has multiple food allergies.   Not a dead ringer for conventional mayo but it works for him just fine.
