Does anyone have a mayo recipe that is quick and easy? I'd really like to get maybe a couple recipes for a little variation. :cool:

Soak 1/2 cup almonds overnight. Drain water and place almonds in blender with 1/2 cup distilled water, add 3 dates, 1 tsp. agar agar or arrowroot powder; 1 tsp. celtic sea salt, 1 tsp. onion flakes. Blend for 2 min. Then add 1/2 cup olive oil and blend until creamy.
I know there's another cashew mayo recipe floating around here also...hopefully someone will post that for you too. ;)

Here are a couple more that were posted here:
1. From the KFC Coleslaw recipe -
Blend until smooth:
§½ c almonds, soaked and peeled
§1/4 cup water
§½ lemon, juiced
§1 small garlic clove
§½ tsp salt
Add in a steady stream, until emulsified:
§1½ c olive oi
2. Posted by Rawveganmom -
1 cup almond milk
1 cup extra virgin cold pressed sunflower oil
1 tablespoon onion powder
Add everything to blender except oil & blend while slowly adding the oil. Chill in fridge to thicken up.
(Note: She also listed where she finds her cold pressed sunflower oil: http://www.purelyorganic.com/Merchant/index.htm
I haven't tried any of these so I can't vouch for how good they are, but here you go! :) (Eep, I think some have already been posted)

I just tried one that is good but perhaps not totally raw because it contains Xanthan gum. I didn't follow the recipe exactly and sort of did it to taste.
I used 1/2 olive oil, 1/2 water, a good couple of squirts of lemon juice, tiny drizzle of cider vinegar, and a pinch each of salt, dry mustard, paprika, onion powder, arrowroot (about 1 1/2 t.) and about 1/2 t. Xanthan gum. I presume the Xanthan gum not to be raw, but am not really sure. Would work without it but might be too runny. The taste is really good though.

juliebove, you could try VERY finely ground psyllium husk to thicken yours if you're interested in a substitute.
RP, yours sounds great, yummy, nice and easy too, thanks for posting! Do you think it would work with an alternate to cashew? I would try mac nuts but we can't get decent fresh ones here.
Katrina, I also sometimes put a fleck of ground mustard, or a little paprika sometimes to change the flavor slightly of mayo, if you're looking for some variations. Or you can just put a little dijon in if you're not picky about raw condiments and seasonings. There's also herbing them up, say fresh tarragon, or sundried tomato-basil, chili powder-lime juice, etc...

I use this one. It actually tastes like real mayo (most of the time). It a;so has the tangy zip of miracle whip.
I never measure
cpev olive oil
an scopr of avocado thickens it, but it thickens a bit in the fridge if you don't want the avo. It's whiter without it. Yummy.
