Hi!



I'm new in the UK (and into vegetarianism) and I'd like to know where I could find egg-free mayonnaise here. I've tried Asda, Tesco, Somerfield, Co-op... They don't have this anywhere.



Thanks for your help!

They should have it... Not that they have many vegetarian stuff, but I'm hoping they DO have egg-free mayonnaise. I simply hate eggs. lol

You can order Plamil's egg-free mayonnaise online (LINK). It's from the UK and it's delicious.

Holland & Barrett stock a couple of brands, as should most health food shops.



A lot of the bigger branches of Tesco and Sainsbury stock it. Sainsbury do their own version in their "Free From" range.



You can also make your own. Let us know if you need recipies.

Thanks for that! I'll order it if I can't find it anywhere else. Do you know if the shipping fees are expensive?

I've been to Tesco (2 different ones) and they don't have it. I'll try Holland & Barrett on Monday though. Maybe I'll be lucky! Otherwise I'll order it online.

Thanks!

The asda or tesco (both hypermarkets) near us stocks 'mayola' in the 'free from' section. If yours doesn't try a hfs, if they don't have it on display - ask. Some of the smaller chains can order it in in their normal delivery which doesn't cost you any extra in postage.

I haven't seen the brand veganaise, I think its just an american thing, but plamil do some and theres mayola and a few more. Theres a shelf at one of the health food stores in Newcastle that has a few makes with loads of different flavours.

If you have Nasoya products there you might ask about Nayonaise.

Thanks for that. I went to a very large Tesco today but couldn't find it. I'm going to go back tomorrow and ask if they have a "free from" section or not.

I'm in Glasgow and it's very hard to find vegetarian things! It's even hard to fin tofu!

Try making your own tofu.... it's easy... and tastes soo much better than pre-packaged stuff.

I haven't been, but when I was researching Glasgow (I was thinking of going to University there) I got the impression that it was very veg*n friendly. It definitely has a massive amount of vegan-friendly places to eat, although I don't know about supermarket shopping and stuff.

I don't really know about restaurants, but I know that about supermarkets, they don't have much choices.

Though the good news is that I finally got egg-free mayonnaise! It turned out that people working at Tesco told me they didn't have it without knowing it for sure. I went back today and asked if they had a "free from" section, and they weren't even sure at first... but then someone told me where it was. So silly. lol

[QUOTE=Katezinha]Oh really? Is the recipe somewhere on the board?



This is what I do.....



Soak 500g soya beans overnight (tesco do their own brand for about 99p .. otherwise, healthfood stores)



Rinse them.



take one cup of beans and blend with two cups of cold water. Add one cup of boiling water and blend again.



Pour this into a sieve lined with tea towel/muslin over a pan. reapeat until it's all used up. Squeeze all the soya milk out of the bran (which is now discarded, it's very hard to digest).



Bring to the boil.... keep an eye on it... it can boil over all of a sudden.



Once at the boil, simmer for about 15 mins.



Now, mix 1 teaspoon of niagrin (Real Foods in Edinburgh do this mail order - it's not expensive) with half a cup of water and mix well. Pour this into the pan and stir really well. Curds will start to form almost immediately. Cook for a couple of minutes.



Now pour into a box will holes in it lined with muslin over a pan (I use a small sandwich box with holes drilled in)... and cover (I cut the sandwich box lid down so it fit right inside). Weigh it down (I use a double size tin of tomatoes) and all of the curds will collect in the box and the excess liquid will drain off (discard the liquid). Once all of the liquid has drained off and the weight has pressed down for an hour or so ... et voila ... beautifull firm tasty tofu.



Once you've done it once, it's really quick.



Good luck.

I don't know if there's a Chinese population or Chinatown in Glasgow, but if there is try going to Chinese shops there for tofu. That's what I do here, and its much cheaper than getting it from the supermarket. It costs £1 for 800g, rather than £1.40 for 350g.

Tesco's healthy living salad cream is accidently vegan and so is waistline salad cream (i think) It really creeped out me and Kate because we thought it should have eggs in which other brands do, but after reading a load of the labels its not uncommon for it to be vegan.

This could be useful instead of mayonaise, and its readily available.
