Turmeric Lemon Dip (Vegan Mayonnaise)

Vegan mayo 12

This dip is so easy to make; you can whizz it up in minutes! It is creamy from tofu, fresh and tangy from lemon juice, has umami saltiness from miso paste and a gingery kick from turmeric.

What is more, this dip is incredibly good for you! It is high in protein and low in fat (principally from the base, tofu), contains probiotic miso paste and turmeric adds anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.

To make this dip creamier and to boost the protein content, you can add some protein powder; vegan varieties like pea and soya bean work well, as does whey protein powder.

This dip makes a deliciously healthy substitute for mayonnaise requiring only a fraction of the amount of oil and so great for dieters and the health conscious. Being dairy-free, it is vegan too!

This dip keeps in the refrigerator for 3 days. It is a great alternative to mayonnaise and works well with crudités, in sandwiches, with cold cuts, veggie sausages and burgers, fish and an accompaniment to salads. I love this dip with my beetroot and chickpea burgers (recipes also available) and my broccoli spinach veggie balls (recipe coming soon).
