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. :)

Hi,

I recently found your site and am Thrilled with the recipes I have tried so far...my 3 year old daughter can't get enough of your lemon cookies and they turn out fabulous when pressed with cookie cutters :)

I would like to try this mayo with some veggie burgers tonight, but I am out of apple cider vinegar. Any suggestions on a good substitute or must I run out and get the real thing ?

You can try lemon juice instead - use a little less

*edit: and I realize soaking the nuts would most definitely aid in smoothness. still tasty as can be anyway!

Plus, perhaps smashing with a hammer would be an effective stress reliever lol

I love this raw mayo. I've made it a few times and eat the crap out of it! Thanks so much. I'm probably going to crush the nuts with a hammer before throwing the ingredients together to blend next time. Maybe my processor/blender doesn't blend too well or maybe I just want to smash nuts with a hammer, who knows? But I feel like the mayo would be extra smooth. I thank ye again, sweet Rawtarian!

Hello,
I've been dabbling in raw foods for 10 months now and just found your website. I'm looking forward to trying this mayo recipe tonight with your BLT recipe. One question though, you didn't specify what half teaspoon of Italian spices to use. I'm a very literal and detail-oriented and vague recipes do not go over well with me. I get flustered and second guess myself. Please help and specify. Thanks!! AnnaBee

I am a big fan of your website and am very new to Raw food, I was wondering if I can use almonds in this recipe instead.

Agreed, not over-hyped in the slightest! I made this with your onion bread recipe and wowza were the flavor combinations incredible. I love raw food, the flavors are so alive!
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.

Um, yum, that would be a good combo. Especially with some sprouts or tomatoes on top too!

Hi,

I am keen to try this recipe tonight! Just bought some organic macadamias. I've got a question - do you need to soak nuts?

Thanks heaps

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.

PS: If I am in a rush or impatient I wouldn't soak with this recipe. Just being real here!

I just made it a few minutes ago. I don't think it tastes anything like SAD mayo. Hmmmm... The end product is good but something I wouldn't want to use nuts for. Am I the only one that didn't end up with something that tasted like SAD mayo? I am honestly tired of using avos for everything to make a "spread". Help, please!

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.

Hi,
Can you tell me how long this mayo will last in the fridge? It looks wonderful and I was glad to see a non soy and healthier alternative to Veganaise. Thanks!

It certainly won't last as long as regular SAD mayo that's for sure :)

But seriously, I would give it a week or less... Probably more like 3-5 days. Hope that helps!

The store bought vegan mayonnaise i have at home was about to finish and i could not find more of it so I tried this recipe with cashews and lemon instead of the vinegar but kept the proportion same. It actually tastes like mayonnaise. (I actually compared it with the left over store bought one!!!) You're great!! :D
