Creamy Cashew Mayonnaise from Rainbow Recipes pge 95

Aileen Sforcina, author of the above book, has been kind enough to grant permission to post this recipe.

This is a deliciously creamy mayonnaise.  The tang is achieved by the use of lemon juice rather than vinegar which is an irritating substance. This recipe can be used to replace traditional egg/milk/vinegar based mayonnaise preparations.

Ingredients

1 cup raw cashew nut pieces
1 cup water
Juice of 1 lemon or to taste
1 or 2 cloves garlic (optional)
1 tspn salt or to taste

Method

Place all ingredients into TM bowl and pulverise for 60 seconds on speed 9.

Serving suggestions - Serve as for mayonnaise with salads.
                              Delicious served with potato salad or coleslaw.
                              Serve on hot jacket potatoes.

This keeps for about 5 days in the fridge, longer if you omit the garlic. It is a thin mayonnaise but by simply cooking it, you can make it thicker to the consistency of philly cream cheese. Add fresh chives and you have cashew sour cream with chives. Good on jacket potatoes, as a dip with raw vegies or with crackers or any bread.

BigTcup: Would also be great on coleslaw or broccoli salad. I didn't have any lemon so I used a dash of white vinegar.

Vivaroo: Made a half batch and it was delicious on coleslaw.  I'm sure using only cashews is the best.

Chookie:Has only 1/4 the calories of egg mayo,  and tastes great .

I made this yesterday as dressing for potato salad - it was a hit! Would also be great on coleslaw or broccoli salad. I didn't have any lemon so I used a dash of white vinegar.

Has anyone tried this by substituting half the nuts with something a bit cheaper like sunflower seeds?  I'm also thinking maybe some ground up chia seeds might help thicken it too, but I'm out of everything so can't experiment today.

Sorry, Vivaroo, I can't help you with your query, but will look forward to any feed-back you get. 

This is now my mayonnaise of choice, it goes so well with everything I have tried it on to date and is so quick and easy to make.

Finally tried this mayo last night.  Made a half batch and it was delicious on coleslaw.  I'm sure using only cashews is the best, I haven't tried adding other seeds yet. Another alternative FatFree Vegan Kitchen has a recipe using half silken tofu and half cashew nuts.
