I have never had the stuff before. I normally make sub sandwiches and just use oil and vinegar. But I went out to the health food store and saw Smart Bacon, then I was craving a BLT (I very rarely eat fake meat. The majority of my diet is raw, and I almost never eat anything processed) I used to use mayo but I don't eat that anymore so I thought I'd try veganaise and I have to say that made the tastiest BLT I think I have ever had in my life. (of course the lack of 'death on a sandwich' probably is what made it taste better. LOL) Man, didn't know what I was missing. Thanks to this site I tried it, everyone on here seems to like it.

I've never lied mayonnaise. It's too globby. However, I do use Nayonaise or Veganaise in vegetable bread pudding and it works quite well there!

I like it too. In fact, I have also made a BLT with SmartBacon and Veganaise. It was pretty good. I've even got my omni BF eating veganaise instead of real mayo.



P.S. What is vegetable bread pudding? Sounds interesting.

Vegetable bread pudding??? You wouldn't happen to have a recipe you'd be willing to share, would you??

I never like mayonnaise either. I've tried nayonnaise (sp?) and wasn't too found of it.



Then my wife started getting free artichokes from the Co-op awhile back and I got hooked on Veganaise. (For those who eat the artichokes dipped in Veganaise or previously mayonnaise).

I believe everything.

It's a recipe from Nava Atlas' The Vegetarian Family Cookbook.

http://vegkitchen.com/recipes/contem....htm#vegetable

That's a link to her website with the recipe on it. It's really quite tasty. It's a great way to use up random bits of veggies you have around. The only major changes I make are no onion, cause onion makes me ill (I just put in more other veggies), and I use leftover loaves of italian bread or baguette, a little stale, rather than sliced wheat bread, because the texture is better that way. I save my bits of stale bread and put them in the freezer for when I'm ready to make this Actually this past week I bought a HUGE stale Spelt boule at the co-op for half off and cut it up and put it in the freezer for the next (few) time(s) I make this recipe.

Can veganaise usually be found at a supermarket, or is it usually only in health food stores?

I've only found it in health food stores around here (Idaho and Washington in the US).



But then I don't really shop in supermarkets unless traveling and forced to...

I believe everything.

The only place I have seen it other then health food stores is Publix. It's only in Florida though I think. I love that store. It's much closer then the health food store so my major shopping goes on there. They have all your regular grocery stuff but also lots of veg options and the only regular store that I can find 8th Continent soy milk (the only brand my toddler will drink) But other then that I don't think I've ever seen it at a regular grocery store.

Any grocery store that has a "natural" department will probably carry it (like Kroger, Publix or Ralph's).



My favorite way to use it is this... mash up a bunch of chickpeas with a pastry blender and add some diced pickles and a couple tablespoons of vegenaise. Some ground pepper and a pinch of cayenne make it super good.

I've seen it at Fred Meyers and Safeway in [Western] WA. In their HFD (health food department) cold case.



I don't think they have it at Albertsons or QFC, but then again, I don't shop there with any regularity so I might have missed it.

That pasty blender looks cool. I ususally use a fork and it takes a while. One time I used a potato masher, and it mashed them too much.



I will have to invest in yet another fabulous kitchen to!





On the vegenaise topic, I had lettuce wraps with mashed chickpeas, vegenaise and green onions.
