Almondaise - The Vegan Alternative to Mayonnaise.

This recipe is a definite favorite! Its hearty flavor compliments everything from salads to bean dishes. It’s delicious to use as an alternative to mayonnaise in sandwiches and wraps.




In a blender:

1 ½ c. toasted almonds

1 c. water

2-4 garlic cloves, raw or roasted

Blend on high for 90 seconds or until smooth.


2 T lemon juice

1 t salt

Turn blender on low power and stream in slowly:

1-2 c olive oil or grapeseed oil

Mixture will thicken and almost solidify but be careful not to over-emulsify or it might get too thin. 

You'll never think of mayonnaise again...

We’re nuts about almonds!

        And surely in salads, too. And on rice as a side dish... and on cooked veggies... oh, the list could go on!
