Welcome to this great oil-free mayonnaise alternative.
Many allergy-friendly mayonnaise substitutes use tofu as one of the main ingredients which are a soy product. Most of my kids and other people I know are allergic to soy. So, I have come up with a soy-free and oil-free mayonnaise version. This is so exciting.
Many people love using this recipe in many different ways because of the delicious taste and thicker texture.

So what makes this Farr Better Oil-Free Mayonnaise so amazing?
White Wine Vinegar
Now let’s prepare this delicious meal.
Soak The Cashews
In a small bowl or glass jar, soak cashews in water. I prefer my mayo glass jars so I can cover it with a lid. Let sit for a few hours or overnight (I prefer overnight because they become soft for blending the next day.) It will reduce blending time and make it a smooth and creamy texture.
Prep the cashews after soaking
Use a strainer to drain out old cashew water.
Rinse under lukewarm water.
Add cashews to the blender.
Add 1 cup dairy-free aquafaba
Aquafaba is a whipped up white foam type texture to add fluff to a recipe. I have a recipe using chickpea liquid.
But for my grandson who allergic to soy, we stay away from chickpeas. Instead, I tested out the liquid of white kidney beans and by golly, it worked exactly the same. Now he can eat this awesome recipe too.
Make aquafaba in a small bowl with the hand mixer. You can find the recipe and information by clicking the link in the ingredient list and photo.
Add remaining ingredients to the blender
Add 1/2 cup water to the blender
Add 1 tbsp lemon juice
Here are some Lemon Lime Citrus Squeezer options I enjoy using to maximize the juice amount. If this doesn’t work, you can purchase an allergy-friendly lemon juice product as an option.
1 tsp dijon mustard
1/2 tsp Sugar Substitutes ~ Click link or photo to see choices that accommodate your dietary restrictions.
1/4 tsp Salt Substitutions ~ Click link or photo to see choices that accommodate your dietary restrictions.
Blend all the ingredients on high for 3-5 minutes until desired creamy consistency.
I discovered that using the Immersion Blender after using the Ninja also helps make it creamier. Adding more water can help you get the consistency you desire.
Other ingredient options
To create the flavor of your choice, here are some other ingredient options; 1/2 teaspoon Tahini, 2 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar, 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
