to be honest, mayo is something that i can live without.. i don’t particularly like the taste.. but i did find some interesting recipes that use mayo like this Classic Waldorf Salad and of course, i do love the occasional egg or tuna mayo sandwich.. plus, it makes a good “binding agent”. im also very intrigued by the many uses of silken tofu!
so when i saw this recipe, i knew i had to try it for project chilli choc coz this project is after all about finding healthy alternatives.. so here is my tofu mayo recipe:
250 g silken tofu
2 tsp honey mustard (or any other mustard will do)
1 tsp olive oil
ground black pepper, salt, lime juice (to taste)
Blitz all ingredients in a blender and voila! Tofu mayo!!
i dont have pictures but hey it looks like mayo! taste wise.. well, it tastes like tofu!! but i mixed it with hard boiled egg for my egg sandwich and it was pretty yummy. today, i mixed it in with my tuna for lunch and i’ll update on the taste later 🙂 I might try the waldorf salad this weekend or perhaps boil some potatoes and mix it in for a potato salad!
the verdict: it’s nothing to shout from the rooftop about but it’s a good recipe to keep at the back of the mind (or in this case, blog) just in case a recipe calls for mayo.
