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. :)

Thank you so much. Love this recipe. I do not like buying processed food at even the health food stores. So when I seen this had the nuts so went for it. Wonderful even my husband used it. Two thumbs up.

I am on a special diet right now and cannot have apple cider vinegar, but could have regular vinegar. Does anyone know if this would work? Just wondering....don't want to end up wasting ingredients.

LuAnn, Can you have lemon juice? I squirted a lot of lemon juice in mine and it tastes amazing. I had cut lemons for a tea and so I juiced some for the mayonnaise. I think it also makes it last a bit longer.

Hi Luann, in your case, you may be better off simply omitting the vinegar completely

I have seen a similar recipe using rice vinegar or coconut vinegar. Haven't tried it, but could try to substitute these for those who asked about replacing the apple cider vinegar.

just to mix it up I used a half cup of pine nuts, and 1 cup of cashews....yummy! :-) Can't wait to try it on my burger!

Is there a substitute for apple cider vinegar that would yield the same taste? Thanks for these recipes.

Hi Diana,

There is no easy substitution. You could do some lemon juice instead, but it is not an exact replacement

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.
