[Editor's Note: Did you think that choosing to eat a vegan diet means giving up creamy homemade mayonnaise? Well, technically it does, but thanks to Stephanie Weaver of The Recipe Renovator, you can still make an equally creamy and tangy sandwich spread at home. Stephanie uses agar, a seaweed-based thickener, to work her magic in this recipe. --Genie]
How to make vegan mayonnaise
Agar is made from dried seaweed, and is used as a thickener in Asian desserts, molecular gastronomy, and in petri dishes at most science laboratories. It creates and holds the oil-milk emulsion. You can flavor this mayo with lemon juice, add a little sweetener, or use it as a base for dips or salad dressings. Start to finish, this recipe takes only 10 minutes.
