I’ve been obsessed with Vegenaise for a while now, I can’t get over how good it tastes and how similar it is to real mayonnaise. It is seriously the greatest thing ever, and I was gonna move!

That means the place I move to won’t have this brand, and I had to figure out to continue having it, so I decided to try and make it, since I had the pea protein and I am so excited I did cos this turned out amazing!

The only thing is, the pea protein should actually be dissolved very well before blending, otherwise you may taste a little of the “powder” taste. I found that just blending the protein powder and water wasn’t really enough.

So if you can, dissolve the protein powder in the water first by heating the water and pea protein together and mix it up well before putting it in the blender.

Vegan Mayonnaise with Grapeseed Oil inspired by Vegenaise

1/2 cup filtered water
3 tablespoons pea protein
2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon ground mustard
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon Himalayan/sea salt
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 1/4 cup grapeseed oil

Combine the pea protein and water together in a high speed blender, blend until the water and protein has dissolved. Alternatively, try heating the water and protein up until it dissolves. If the water and pea protein liquid is still in a bowl, add it back into the blender.

Add the pure maple syrup, mustard, onion powder, salt, apple cider vinegar and lemon juice. Blend on full speed until everything has come together and dissolved.

Start adding a little oil at a time (split into 8-10 times) and blend. Be sure you don’t do it too much if you’re using a high speed blender like Vitamix as it may overheat, and if so, you’ll find that it almost becomes a soup with the oil and liquid separate.

Keep blending in small segments and stopping for a minute or so to allow the liquid to cool, until all the oil is used up. By then, the mixture should have thickened quite a bit.

Pour the mayo into a glass container and seal the lid, then refrigerate for a few hours to allow it to thicken further.
