Would prefer recipes to make my own, but want to hear what vegans say is the best Mayonnaise substitute they use.

veganaise is a great product that's available in most health food stores.

Take a little puréed tofu, very gradually blend in oil and a bit of lemon juice. Season to taste with salt, sweetener, roasted garlic, curry powder, nutritional yeast, or whatever. (I use an immersion blender, but a small food processor or blender will do the job also).



Or, Follow Your Heart's Veganaise is very nice.

I use Spectrum eggless vegan canola mayonaise. I like it. Tastes nice and very creamy.

Same here. I'd also like to state for the record that Veganaise is at least 10 times better than typical mayonaise.

Another vote for Veganaise. My vegan chef friend just used it tonight in her cooking class. She prefers the type made from grapeseed oil to the kind made from canola oil.

yup. i can't eat mayo anymore - it's too... strong tasting? pungent? is that the right word? i can't even open the jar without grimacing in disgust from the smell. hubby prefers mayo though. i'm hoping he'll turn eventually.

My mom has indrocinated me all my entire life "dukes is the only mayonnaise" "we only eat dukes" it's actually kind of creepy how in love with that mayonnaise she is, but she loves my veganaise so I guess it must be pretty good.

Is Veganaise low in fat, or is it the same calorie/fat content of regular mayonaise?

its the same calorie/fat as regular mayo. Nayonaise is low fat but it also tastes like crap (IMHO) Its supposed to by like miracle whip, so maybe it is good to those who liked miracle whip.

I've had Nayonaise and Veganaise. Nayonaise isn't bad but I prefer Veganaise. And of course that's the one I can't buy locally.

Veganaise - 9 grams of fat / 90 calories

http://www.followyourheart.com/vegenaise_nutrition.php



Hellmann's Mayonnaise - 11 grams of fat / 100 calories

http://www.nutritional-information.info/item52521.aspx



Miracle Whip - 3.5 grams of fat / 40 calories

You can get fat-free mayo but I'm not aware of a vegan version.

Here's VegWeb's page of mayo dressings. The Cashew Mayonaise looks good; I'll have to get the ingredients for it and try it

I just bought my first jar of Vegenaise! The store also had a brand of vegan mayo called Spectrum, that I have never seen mentioned before. I almost bought that until I later found the Vegenaise in a different section and decided to go with what everyone suggests.
