3/4cup(180 ml) light tasting oil(such as canola, vegetable, grape seed, safflower, or avocado.)
Combine aquafaba, lemon juice, mustard, and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk/blend until well combined, about 30 seconds. Note: I recommend using a hand blender (immersion blender) or a small food processor. You can make this by hand with a clean bowl and a whisk; it’ll just take a little bit longer.
With a hand blender or food processor running, gradually add the oil in a very slow, thin stream, constantly whisking/blending until the mayonnaise is thick, the whole process will take about 8 minutes. Note: Adding the oil slowly makes for a creamier mayonnaise, and if you pour it too fast, the mayo won’t thicken.
Cover and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Store: Keep this eggless mayo stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.Recipe Tips:
Neutral Flavored Oil. Use an oil that is light in flavor. I recommend canola, grape seed, safflower, or avocado.
Add the Oil Slowly. Adding the oil slowly is really important. If you dump it all in at once, you will end up with mayonnaise soup!
Give it time. The emulsification process takes time; it takes me approx. 8 minutes, so don't rush it and be patient. It will come together!
Variations:Here are some of my favorite flavor combinations:
Roasted Garlic – Add 1 tablespoon of roasted garlic paste. This is the one I use.
Sriracha or Chipotle – Blend in 2 tablespoons of sriracha sauce or 1 chipotle in adobo sauce.
Herb – Blend in 2 tablespoons of your favorite chopped herb, like chives, dill, basil, thyme, or parsley.
Curry – Blend in 1 tablespoon of yellow curry powder, or you may add Thai curry paste.
Sundried Tomato – Add 1 tbsp of well-chopped sundried tomatoes.
