The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

I don't make recipes with macadamia nuts very often because they are rather expensive, but this raw mayo is totally worth it.

It's light, fluffy, and subtly tangy. It's also very rich. Mmm!

My husband is a purist type, and he doesn't even like this raw mayonnaise recipe because it tastes "too much like mayo." But I love it for that very same reason!

I definitely recommend this mayonnaise recipe. It's a must-serve when making raw veggie burgers.

My blender is pretty crappy, and I was worried that it wouldn't blend the macadamia nuts, but they blended well.

I'll be serving this on veggie burgers, using it as a dip, a spread, etc.

My expectations of this recipe were pretty low because I have tried some recipes that have GREAT names but taste nothing like their names. For example, I recently made "seed cheese" and it tasted nothing like cheese. But behold the power of the raw mayo!

If you try this one, please let me know what you think. Let me know if I've over-hyped it. :)

Hello!

Laura- Jane - I love your work, thank you for your passion I know I speak for many when I say it is appreciated! :)

I just wanted to jump in and add a comment about the high powered blenders!

Over here in Australia a VM is about $800 by the time you cover postage so I recently purchased an Optimum Blender! Its superb. It cost about $650 including a 7 year warranty. I had no idea a high powered blender would make SUCH a difference! So anyone whos looking for a vitamix or blendtec but cant afford it or just enjoys saving money, check out the Optimum and see if its for you :)

Thanks!

Best dehydrator is 9-tray excalibur, hands down. But... it is expensive! http://tinyurl.com/ah6o3qt

You can also get a Vegikiln - they are cheaper, white, not as "reputable" but they get the job done: http://tinyurl.com/avb59e3

Overall, you should get a 8-to-10-tray, and do not get a round dehydrator.

This is really great! It made a lot- I'll try to use this with kelp noodles before it goes bad. It's a spin-off of your alfredo, which is also a staple in my raw diet. I'd probably use cashews next time, just because macadamia nuts are really expensive here (this just cost me over $12 to make). Thanks!

I would like to try this specifically using the Mac Nuts, because of their fatty-acid profile. My question is, why the Italian seasonings? I have loved the taste of Store-bought mayo my whole life, but don't think it had Italian seasonings. Also, do you think I could substitute lemon juice for apple cider vinegar, and maybe add a little turmeric? Thanks!

I think I was going through my Italian seasoning phase when I made Better Than Mayo :) You might try the substitutions, noting that turmeric will give it a yellow colour. You may want to try the recipe as is, except use macadamias instead of cashews...it's really yummy.

We have a nutribullet. It makes excellent greens/fruit/boost smoothies. It homogenizes VERY well. It's a true nutrition extractor! I've used it to make the Alfredo sauce, a raw lasagna, and a cheesecake. It did an excellent job with all of those. It's capacity is limited compared to a vitamix or blendtec, etc., so if I could afford a vitamix from Costco for $375 I'd get one in addition. The $99 nutribullet is a good choice for starting out with green smoothies and small projects especially if your budget is

Glad you enjoyed my Better Than Mayo recipe from Uncooking With RawRose. A few years ago I had trouble finding good macadamia nuts, and also wanted to reduce the amount of olive oil. Here's my revised recipe which is really great ...if I do say so myself :)
Blend:
1 1/2 cups raw cashews
3/4 cup water
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons Italian spices
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
dash of cayenne

Enjoy!!

Just made this with half and half cashews and macs......plus the juice of half a lemon and more water. It's delicious and I don't think my husband even noticed it wasn't real mayo!
The rest is now dehydrating into what I reckon will be some yummy crackers!
Thank you so much for the super recipe

They are very rich and creamy and will be superb crumbled over a salad. A little goes a long way as they are so rich and I felt they even have a cheesey flavour!
Left them out on the side when they came out of dehydrator and in a couple of hours they were moist again with our NZ humidity so are back in the warmth to dry out again!

Hi Sharai, It is a lot for one person, I agree! It keeps in the fridge tightly sealed for about 4 days. If you have a dehydrator you can dehydrate as crackers, or leftovers can be frozen. For example, you might want to split the finished product in half - freeze half of it and use the rest in the fridge.

Hi Rawtarian! So glad to see that you and other people are enjoying my recipe. It's still one of my favourites. In the more recent editions of my book (Uncooking With RawRose) I modified the recipe a bit:
- use 1 1/2 cups raw cashews instead of macadamia nuts (because macs are often rancid)
- use 1 tablespoon olive oil instead of 3 tablespoons (because already enough fats)
- use 1 1/2 teaspoons Italian spices instead of 1 teaspoon
The other ingredients are still 3/4 cup water, 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon sea salt and a dash of cayenne. Enjoy!!!

DELICIOUS!!!! I made this just now to go with the raw veggie burgers that are currently in my dehydrator. I was spooning this out of the blender, so, so, so good!!!! I can see myself using this as a veggie dip, raw pasta sauce (like alfredo), and tons more. Will definitely taste delish on the veggie burger. I had another raw "white sauce" recipe I was using, but I like this one better. I used 1 c. cashews and 1/2 c. macadamia nuts. I just got some in a bulk sale, otherwise I usually don't have them. It tastes amazing. I will definitely be making this again, and again, and again!! Thank you :)

This is GREAT! I'm returning to raw again after a 3-year hiatus and the hardest thing for me to give up has been sandwiches. And mayo on those sandwiches. I love mayo, strange as it may seem. Since I live alone, I halved the recipe (you don't mention how long it will last), and added freshly squeezed juice of half a lemon and about 1/2 tsp of agave (I too prefer the Hellman's kind of sweet mayo). Another thing I did to smooth out the texture was to grind the macadamia nuts first in my min-prep Cuisinart until they almost turned to butter. It's so creamy now, and so pretty with the little green specks of herbs. I love it so much I licked the spatula when I was cleaning my Vitamix! Thanks for posting. I love your recipes.

Ok, for the mayo, the only adjustment I made was adding half a cup of pine nuts and that was because I had soaked too much for another recipe and needed to use them. For the Italian seasoning, I didn't have any and used a couple shakes each of oregano, thyme, basil, and rosemary.

Ideally you could soak for a minimum of an hour and then rinse clean.

You don't have to soak them if you have a high-speed blender, but it is a good idea for this recipe.

Hi Erica,

That's too bad that this recipe didn't work out well for you. Did you use a high-speed blender?

Also, do you have a food processor? If you soak your nuts and use good equipment your spreads should come out tasting or having the texture of nuts at all.

I've been searching for a good raw mayo recipe for ages. This one is PERFECT. I did add a couple of drops of stevia because I'm more of a Hellman's girl (sweet) rather than Miracle Whip (too tangy for me). Anyway, this is going to be my staple mayo recipe for sure, thanks so much!

Hello,
I have been thinking of buying BlendTech. What do you think of that choice?
Apparently the newer one with 4 inch blade is pretty good.

I actually chose the Blendtech over Vitamix after much research and seeing both in use. The deciding factor for me was the Wild Side pitcher with the Blendtech. You can fill this thing to the very top and never, ever have to tap down. You fill it, push the pre-programmed button, and walk away. It has something to do with the angle of the sides or, I don't know exactly what, but that was a really big thing for me.

Hi Felina,

Both Vitamix and Blendtec are great blenders. I'm happy that you're pleased with yours. Happy blending!

Yep, BlendTec and Vitamix are the big two blenders. I have a Vitamix, but I am certain the Blendtec will be great for you. Good luck!

My guess is that it will work out fine with cashews. I frequently swap the two nuts in recipes depending on what I have on hand and price. Did you try the recipe with cashews, VeganShine? If so, what did you think?

I am going to try this recipe today but my store does not carry any macadamias so I will try all cashews. Hope it turns out ok. I am a vegan (10 years) and just learning about raw dishes. I am going to try the lemon cookies and alfredo sauce too. Thanks for posting these recipes.

I don't think you over-hyped this. It is terrific! I actually used 1 cup of macadamias and 1/2 cup of cashews and it worked great.

Thanks!

Fran,

Ooh, you have a Vitamix (lucky gal)! I think it's kind of funny that you chose to get a better blender first, and I chose to get a dehydrator first.

I've got a date in my head that if I make it to six months raw I have totally earned a Vitamix. Most people would get one earlier, but I am very thrifty. :) Do you have a timeline for getting your Excalibur, I wonder?

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your story!

Hi Laura-Jane,
I finally purchased a Vitamix a few weeks ago. I was so thrilled with my
"new green smoothies" ! So much better than the old blender.
Next on my list is dehydrater. Excalibur. Finger crossed. I
will then try your mayo on veggie burger.
Kindly,
Fran

Hi Jo, I just got my Vitamix about a week ago. Got it through Costco.ca. No shipping cost and it was $499 plus HST.
YES, WORTH EVERY SINGLE PENNY!!! :)

You can call the company and get a refurbished one for about $100 cheaper and they still have the warranty.

YES, A VM IS WORTH THE MONEY.  Honestly. Here's the deets on mine http://www.therawtarian.com/vitamix-free-shipping

Yes, they do cost like $500 but they are WORTH IT because the texture you get will be so silky smooth you can never go back to normal blender after having one

PS: YOu do NOT need to buy an expensive dehydrator or even an expensive food processor. Just get cheap ones and SPEND ALL YOUR MONEY ON THE VM

I promise

Hello!

Laura- Jane - I love your work, thank you for your passion I know I speak for many when I say it is appreciated! :)

I just wanted to jump in and add a comment about the high powered blenders!

Over here in Australia a VM is about $800 by the time you cover postage so I recently purchased an Optimum Blender! Its superb. It cost about $650 including a 7 year warranty. I had no idea a high powered blender would make SUCH a difference! So anyone whos looking for a vitamix or blendtec but cant afford it or just enjoys saving money, check out the Optimum and see if its for you :)

Thanks!

Hi Holley, thank you so much for weighing in. Australians will appreciate your insights! Don't think we have an Optimum here in Canada. Yikes, $800!!
