We vegans have an embarrassment of riches when it comes to cruelty-free mayo options. Below is a breakdown of the top creamy spreads to try on your next sammie.
VEGENAISE – Follow Your Heart has blessed us with such delectables as the VeganEgg and loads of scrumptious dressings. Vegenaise comes in soy-free, organic, reduced fat, grapeseed oil, pesto, chipotle and roasted garlic.
But the original will always be tops for us. Salty and creamy with that great mouthy mayo feeling, and a touch of sweetness. It’s perfect in recipes such as Spinach-Artichoke Dip or veganized Chick’n Salad.
MINDFUL MAYO – Earth Balance is our trusted source for Buttery Spread, boxed Mac & Cheese and Cheddar Squares (vegan cheese its).
Their mayo is offered in organic and olive oil. The original is the closest to a veganized Miracle Whip and has a light flavor. A great base for recipes such as aolis.
AVOCADO – Mashing up an avo is the healthiest option. Delicious, quick, easy and perfect for raw foodists.
JUST MAYO – Hampton Creek has risen to stardom in the vegan world and now offers cookie dough too. They offer us four flavors of Just Mayo including Chipotle, Garlic and Sriracha.
The original Just Mayo is the closest to actual dairy/egg mayo and even has a yellowish color. Tangy, creamy, thick and rich, mellow on the salt and has the mouthy texture of dairy mayo. It’s perfect for sandwiches or in vegan recipes that require mimicking egg, such as Eggless Salad and Tofu Scramble.
