Tofu Mayonnaise…

I originally posted this in September of 2006, but for some reason when I  transferred my blog over from the old blog to the new blog, this post didn’t make it….not quite sure why, BUT I’m glad I had told a friend about this recipe and told her I’d send her the link otherwise I may have never known that it didn’t make the transfer.   The old blog is still available for me to access….at least until the weekend 🙂 

9/21/06      This morning when I was making my hubby’s lunch I realized that I was almost out of mayonnaise and have been wanting to try something out… I made tofu mayonnaise.

Here’s what I did, and it turned out very good!  The best part is, I have these items on hand all the time.  If you wanted it thicker, you can stream in more oil and let it emulsify more.

10 ounces (almost a full box) soft silken tofu
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 Tbsp. cider vinegar
1 Tbsp. dijon mustard
1/4-1/3 cup grapeseed oil

In my food processor, I blended everything but the grapeseed oil until everything was well blended.  Then I started adding the oil in slowly in a steady stream until the mayo started to thicken up.

It tastes REALLY good!   Most recipes that I found had lemon juice, and I don’t have any lemon juice, so I tried this one.  Less expensive than Veganaise and regular mayo…. and it’s made with things that I keep on hand :)

    I’m not a fan of tofu at all, but this sounds good. I may just have to set aside my preconceived notions of tofu LOL

  2. Lori, I have to say that I have tried many different recipes for mayo that used tofu. I have not been a fan of any of them. I am going to try this today though, because I am in a place now where we really need to start watching our spending. vegenaise around here is about $8 for a quart! I’ve already made a batch of the homemade laundry detergent, thanks to you posting about it on FB the other day! I had pinned a recipe months ago, and never did it! LOL Thank you! Love your blog! I’m going to peruse it for bread recipes!

    • Jeannette you will have to let me know what you think! If the tofu is too prominent you can add more spices or fresh herbs. I don’t know of anything else besides tofu that you could substitute for the egg yolks in making a mayo. I’m pretty sure Veganaise is made from tofu….. but $8 a quart, WOW!
