How to Make Homemade Cashew Mayonnaise


I made a version of this cashew mayonnaise before and used it more as a spread than a dressing. Now, I have tweaked the recipe to make it creamier and tangier and more mayonnaise-y. I used some elements from the grapeseed mayo I made recently and now this is the perfect oil free alternative mayo.

Use in cole slaw, on tofu clubs, tofu saladchickpea salad, as a dip for baked potatoes (very Belgian and very good) or anywhere else you would use mayo.

Cashew Mayonnaise
1 cup cashews
3/4 cup water
The juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon vegan sugar
1/2 teaspoon each: garlic powder, onion powder, mustard powder
Salt, a pinch to taste

If you don’t have a Vitamix, soak the cashews overnight. Drain them and use fresh water to blend.

Place all ingredients int the Vitamix or blender, blend until smooth. Enjoy!
