Please share your favorite condiments and replacements for not so good condiments here. I'm not sure if a thread like this already exists I am new here but wanted to start one because I really need some ideas on how to swap out some bad condiments.
For example I really like miracle whip and I was getting the light miracle whip but I seen it has hydrogenated oils and lots of bad stuff so I was wondering if anyone knows a good substitute for that. Oh and also I can't stand mayo. I have heard of a vegan one called veganaisse but I haven't tried it have any of you tried it and what do you think about it? I also heard it is very expensive I found this recipe to make your own I might try but I don't have all the ingredients yet here it is if any of you want to try and post how you like it
- 1/2 cup plain soy milk
- 1 1/4 cup safflower oil
- 2 tsp white wine vinegar
- 1 tbsp superfine sugar (maybe could sub stevia for this?)
- pinch of paprika
- 1/2 tsp mustard powder
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
1. Put soy milk in a food processor and start processing. Slowly drizzle oil in while blade is running. When all oil is incorporated, stop blade and scrape down sides. Add remaining ingredients and process briefly to mix through.
If you want it a bit firmer, you can add in extra firm silken tofu. Or, if you want it lower fat you can sub in some tofu for the oil. This is more zingy like Miracle Whip, so cut down on the vinegar and sugar if you want it more like mayo.
I heard tofu and soy isn't too good for hormones though so anyone have any other non soy or tofu based recipes or products? Do you think it would be ok with unsweetened almond milk instead also?
Found another recipe thats a bit different:
Homemade Mayonnaise Recipe – Vegan Mayonnaise Recipe
Makes ¾ cup mayonnaise
½ cup soaked almonds (soak almonds for 8 hours)
½ cup purified water
Juice ½ lemon
3/4 tablespoon honey
½ tablespoon raw apple cider vinegar
1/8 teaspoon dry mustard
½ teaspoon sea salt
½ to 2/3 cup olive oil
Place all the ingredients for your homemade mayonnaise recipe in a heavy duty blender except the olive oil. Puree the ingredients until very smooth. With blender still in motion, slowly pour a thin stream of olive oil through the opening in your blender’s cover. Continue to puree until you reach the right consistency. Taste and adjust flavors to your liking.
Wonder if you could sub stevia for the honey also.
