There are many ways to make vegan mayonnaise, and I use different methods at different times and for different purposes. This particular recipe makes for a really firm and creamy mayonnaise. Which perfectly suits a vegan burger, or chunky chips.
The making & storing of this mayonnaise
It does take a bit of time to make this vegan mayonnaise compared to other quick techniques like the one which uses aguafaba. But this is mainly because of waiting times (resting & cooling). It is worthed the wait though!
It can easily keep in the fridge for 4 weeks, as long as you keep the base mayonnaise without added herbs, or garlic. Store in a sterile well closed jar.
*There is a short step-by-step video within the recipe card.
This mayonnaise is creamy, rich, tangy and smooth as velvet. You can easily transform this base mayonnaise into a garlicky aioli, a herby spread or the most perfect tartare dip sauce. It is really the perfect thing to always have ready in your fridge to jazz up your dishes.
I normally make 1 big jar of the base mayonnaise, which I keep in my fridge for weeks, and transform to any other nice dips when needed.

Transform your vegan mayonnaise into the perfect Tartare sauce
In another recipe post you can find my easy & quick tartare sauce, which is absolutely delicious and super quick to make. That one is made with silken tofu, which creates the most smooth sauces. But if you are not a big tofu fan, and are happy to spent a bit more time, use this base mayonnaise to make your perfect vegan tartare sauce.
To make the tartare sauce with this recipe, use 4 Tablespoons of the vegan mayonnaise in this recipe, and add;
- 1 garlic clove, finely crushed
- 1 Tablespoon capers, chopped
- 1 Tablespoon cornichons / gurkens, finely chopped
- 1 small shallot, finely diced
- 1 Tablespoon fresh chives
- 1 Tablespoon parsley, or dill, or a mixture of the two
- 2 teaspoon lemon juice
- Freshly ground black pepper
Vegan mayonnaise is a must have in the fridge to accompany so many different dishes, sandwiches and wraps. Pimp up your vegetables with a vegan aioli. Add some spices and spice up your burger. Or make your own perfect vegan tartare dip sauce. Get creative, and Enjoy this creamy, rich and smooth mayonnaise.
