Thanks french momma - I made Axa's recipe and it came out really well when I used the soy milk it calls for (had an earlier disaster when I tried to use another plant milk) - only problem is that I'm not a huge fan of soy (purely for taste reasons). So I'll try this. A friend of mine brought me some Vegenaise with grapeseed oil - I LOVE the taste of that, so maybe I'll try to sub some grapeseed oil for the olive. Be well.
Anita, I HATE olive oil, so I use grapeseed oil in everything! It is a very light tasting oil, so it doesn't overpower the other flavors like olive oil does. I want to try to make vegenaise too now...thanks for the recipes, girls! :)
Can anyone convert the ml in Axa's recipe to teaspoons and tablespoons? I'm not sure I could make this since those of us here in America don't follow the same measurement system as the rest of the world. :/
The rest of the recipe is in tsp and tbsp so you should be fine. I use American measurements for all my recipes - I changed when I moved to the States and haven't reverted back because I prefer cups. More and more people in the UK are using cups thanks to people like Nigella Lawson who actively encourage it. In fact, there are a lot of cups on the market now here so it must be getting popular. If I were going to make this recipe I would just round it up or down, i.e. use a cup of sunflower oil and 1/2 cup soya milk.
I used the Plamil egg free mayo last night for my veggie burger and wedges meal and omg it was amazing. My Husband couldn't get over it. We bought the garlic flavoured one - yum!
Hi Aine, what you say about UK is here in the Netherlands also true. I was so excited to find a set of cups in my local supermarket! :))) Made my life with Veganomicon and weblogs, much easier!! I prefer it actually to ml/l also... easier!
The soy-less mayo turned out really good! I am so happy, because it is one condiment we use frequently in various things. Not quite as thick though, so next time I will play around with adding something to thicken it.
hi peasandlove - I quite like olive oil in salads and for grilling etc., but it does TOTALLY overpower mayo for ordinary uses - I bought some rapeseed(canola) and hemp oils when I was first getting into this whole plant-based thing, and then realised that I wasn't at all keen on them - I always thin them out with grapeseed even though I know I should be sneaking more nutrients in with the stronger tasting oils
Aine - I'm going to look out for the Plamil
Axa - thanks for starting this thread
so wonderful to be having a unconfrontational conversation for a change!!!
