Tofu Mayo

(Comments)

I used to be a mayonnaise addict. As in I would put it on almost everything. Once I went vegan, I actually started making my own with the whole olive oil emulsification deal. That was okay for awhile, until I started noticing that the oils weren't as healthy as I thought and I banished it completely from my diet. 

Now I can have it anytime with this new recipe! Its easy, with accessible ingredients and works very well in recipes that call fro mayo. I tested it with a "crab" cake recipe and a spinach artichoke recipe and it performed beautifly (recipes will be up this month).

For those who avoid soy, I am going to try to make another recipe that doesn't require tofu, but it may take some testing and time. I have made some succesfully with nuts and seeds but I would really like to have a low fat one available to use as well. 

I'm really loving Vegan MoFo this year, having time to prepare in advance is definitely the way to go! Day 3 in the bag :D
