Today we are making an EASY Vegan Mayonnaise that is incredibly delicious, rich, and creamy.  Once you have made vegan mayonnaise from scratch, you’ll probably never buy store-bought again.


  • 3/4 cup silken tofu
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon shredded horseradish (or 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard)
  • 1/3 cup safflower oil (or neutral tasting oil)


  • In a substantial blender add tofu, lemon juice, salt, onion powder and horseradish.
  • Blend until smooth. Keep blending on high for a couple of minutes.
  • Reduce the speed of the blender to low and add oil slowly. This is a crucial step. Make sure the oil is at room temperature.
  • Next turn the blender on high and blend for a minutes or so. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.


An important trick to making great vegan mayo is to start with the ingredients at room temperature.  You may cool it in the fridge as soon as it is made, but it does not do well in the freezer.
