Vegan Mayonnaise

The secret to getting a really creamy homemade vegan mayonnaise is to add the oil very, very slowly—literally just a few drops at a time—and use the highest available speed on your food processor.

Serves: 16


  • 1 block (12 oz.) silken tofu
  • 1 1⁄2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 1⁄2 tsp. white vinegar
  • 1⁄3 cup canola oil


  • Process all ingredients, except oil, in a food processor until smooth. On high speed, slowly incorporate the oil just a few drops at a time until smooth and creamy.
  • Chill for at least 1 hour before serving to allow flavors to blend. Mayonnaise will also thicken as it sits.
