Creative Ways You Can Use
Vegan Mayo in Different Dishes
Whether you are just starting as a vegan and planning to fully commit yourself to the lifestyle, you may assume that you have to sacrifice lots of delicious foods you used to enjoy because of your limited food options. But the truth is dietary changes doesn’t stop you from indulging in tasty meals. To whip up some of the most delectable vegan recipes, you should look for substitutes.
A common ingredient used in dishes is mayonnaise, and you can use a vegan mayo as an alternative. The big difference between them is in the eggs. The vegan version uses vegetable proteins, like soy or pea. These proteins help the oil and water to combine, giving vegan mayo its smooth, creamy texture and consistency without the added cholesterol.
If you’ve meant to try vegan mayo but don’t know how to use it, you don’t have to worry. Here are some creative ways you can use this healthy ingredient:
1. Macaroni and cheese
Mac and cheese is a classic comfort food that is loved by many. To make a vegan version of this, you can consider adding a bit of vegan mayo to give your pasta a boost of flavour. It also offers a flavourful contrast to the vegan cheese and spices, like paprika, cayenne flakes, and ground black pepper.
2. Salad dressings and sandwiches
You usually create a salad dressing from scratch using vinegar, lemon juice, healthy fat oils, tahini salt pepper, and fresh herbs. If you want to make it creamier and more filling, you can add some vegan mayo. You can also use them to whip up some delicious salad sandwiches, which have refreshing, light flavours ideal for breakfast or as a light snack.
3. Lemon custard
It may seem weird at first, but you can mix one tablespoon of vegan mayo into your lemon soy yogurt cup. Your creamy dessert will have a boost of custard-like flavour. You can also try this with other yogurt flavours.
4. Toast or garlic bread
Garlic bread is a delicious accompaniment for soups, stews, and other dishes. On the other hand, toast is a yummy breakfast that can give you energy throughout the day. Use vegan mayo the next time you make garlic bread or toast to enjoy its rich, buttery flavour.
5. Baked potato
If you’re craving a classic baked potato, satisfy your tummy and taste buds by making some foil-wrapped baked golden potato. Add some fresh chopped chives and vegan mayo for more flavours that will surely leave you wanting more. You can also consider using sour cream as a condiment to complement the taste of your dish.
6. Spicy potatoes
Roasted potatoes go well with harissa. To enjoy a contrast between spicy and creamy, add a dollop of vegan mayo next to your dish. It is sure to excite and calm your taste buds at the same time.
