Low Fat Mayonaise

What you need: 

1/4 cup cashews
1 cup water
2 tablespoons corn starch
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
dash paprika
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons rice syrup
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil (olive oil doesn't work as well)

What you do: 

1. Blend together cashews, water, and corn starch, until smooth. Pour into pan and heat until very thick.
2. Place pan into ice bath to cool. Place plastic wrap right on the top of the mixture after slightly cooled.
3. When thouroughly cooled, return to blender and add remaining ingredients.
This sounds like a bit of work but is well worth it and tastes as close to Vegenaise as I've been able to come to it.

Hi, i sorta just made this recipe.. well, what i should say is that what i made is loosely based around this recipe.. i didnt have alot of the ingredients, i had some things i wanted to use up, and i added a few things that i saw included in some other vegan mayo recipes..

basically i doubled the cashews, subbed soymilk for water, added sesame seeds and yellow mustard, fresh instead of powdered garlic, lime instead of lemon juice, white instead of apple cider vinegar, sugar instead of rice syrup, and added coconut oil.. sorry that is a massive amount of substitutions, but it turned out wonderful..

i choose this recipe cuz it is lower in fat that the others and it has the cornstarch in it to thicken it up, cuz everytime i make just oil based vegan mayo it stays really soupy.. anyways thanks for the idea, and some day i will get around to making this actual recipe when i have the necessary ingredients.. ;)

what i did:

1/2 cup cashews
1/2 cup soymilk
2 tablespoon sesame seeds
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoon corn starch
2 cloves garlic

combined and added to heated, thickened, blended first batch of ingredients:
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 tablespoon yellow mustard
2 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon raw sugar
1 tablespoon white vinegar

slowly added at the end:
2 tablespoons each raw coconut oil, veggie oil
2 tablespoon soymilk
