Cinco con mayo: 5 dishes with vegan mayonnaise

“When this girl at the museum asked me who I liked better, Monet or Manet, I said, ‘I like mayonnaise.’ She just stared at me, so I said it again, louder. Then she left. I guess she went to try to find some mayonnaise for me.” – Jack Handy

I positively adore reduced fat Vegenaise. I put it on everything. EVERYTHING. My secret favorite snack? Corn chips dipped in reduced-fat vegenaise.

I swear I’m not a stoner.

Cinco de Mayo is coming up, and rather than tequila shots and avocado, this beloved Mexican holiday makes me think of reduced fat Vegenaise.

You know, mayo = mayonnaise = the non-vegan version of Vegenaise.

In honor of the celebration, here are five (cinco) recipes that use vegan mayo and look really tasty.

  1. Hot artichoke dip from C’est La Vegan
  2. I Eat Trees’ 4 ingredient Mediterranean Penne
  3. Veggies on the Counter’s Tofu cakes with Curried apple
  4. The Blissful Chef’s Curried Tempeh Chicken Salad
  5. The Tolerant Vegan’s Salsa Verde Sliders with Avocado Mayo


And, hey, because I’m arrogant, I’ll include a sixth of my own: Chive-y Ranch Dip on a buffalo sub.

Not into Vegenaise? Maybe try Fat Free Vegan Kitchen’s Tofu-Cashew Mayonnaise.

    Thank you for these recipes….and Susan’s Fat Free Vegan Kitchen’s Tofu-Cashew Mayo is ALL we eat now. Takes, maybe 5 minutes to make (Vita-Mix) and is absolutely wonderful!!

    Thanks, Connie — I really need to be less lazy and make Susan’s mayo more often! I have a Vita-Mix, so I have no excuse! Fewer ingredients and less oil than Vegenaise too.
