raw substitute for vegenaise please?

LauroliLauroli Raw Newbie

I really love the taste of vegenaise but don't love the ingredients so much. . . two many unhealthy oils. Can anyone direct me to a good raw substitute?

Thanks :)


  • dafodil- is this a tried and true recipe you have used before? it sounds good in theory, but I wanna make sure before I use up my almonds!

  • LauroliLauroli Raw Newbie

    That sounds great, dafodil. I agree with iheartveggies, it's risky to use so many almonds if you haven't tried it before. Maybe substitute with cashews?

    Avocado Mayo: Blend until creamy

    1 cup pine nuts

    1 large avocado

    1 tbs. lemon juice

    2 tbs. apple cider vinegar

    1 tsp. Celtic sea salt

    6 medium pitted dates (3 packed tbs.)

    1/2 clove garlic

    I found this one on another website, it's been so long ago, I can't remember where. I used it with a mock tuna recipe and it was great.

  • I know that veganaise tastes soooo good, but I have actually started using Hummus as my sandwich spread. It is yummy!

  • LauroliLauroli Raw Newbie

    what hummus recipe do you use? that sounds like a nice substitute for sandwiches and wraps.

  • LauroliLauroli Raw Newbie

    sounds great. I would probably substitute half the pine nuts for macadamia nuts. I have a sensitivity to pine nuts if I overdo it.

    an avocado with apple cider vinegar, a little salt, and a little paprika. :)

  • Our family cannot seem to get enough of Snowdrop's Ranch dressing. Funny thing...we have not used it once yet as a dressing. We have used it as mayo in our veggie wraps and on our version of jalapeno burgers. Can't get enough.

    You can find the Ranch Dressing recipe from Snowdrop's blogsite...


    Snowdrop even gives directions on how you can make a bacon flavored ranch dressing...personally I have not tried the bacon version yet. Why mess with a good thing. At The Sunny Raw Kitchen you can see a picture of Snowdrop's Ranch Dressing. Click on blog archives for 2007 and pan down mid-way. Posted Sept. 23, 2007


    You will also get to see a picture of the "Herbed Almonnaise" that dafodil posted above at The Sunny Raw Kitchen. (under blog archives for 2008) Along with other spreads and dips like the following...Creamy Spinach Spread, Sunflower Dill Dressing, Tomato Dressing, Cheddar Cheese Spread or Dip, Zucchini Hummus, Herbed Avocado Spread, etc..

    Note - Some of the recipes can only be found in Carmella's e-book The Best Of RFC" or at Raw Freedom Community.

    Like the Zucchini hummus...



    The ranch dressing makes for a great substitute for mayo with a slight, but oh so nice kick/tang.

    I really like this one:


    (but I make it with agave instead of honey, & I only use about 1/2 Tbs)

    Too weird, I TOO am looking for a vegenaise raw recipe. *hehe*

    I found this one http://goneraw.com/recipe/cashew-mayonnaise

    but thanks for posting... I may try another.

  • Hello lauroli,

    During a search, I came across this recipe


    Also I found a recipe called mayonut, but I only see a picture, if anyone has the recipe I would love to see it!


  • magpie89magpie89 Raw Newbie

    I use such little veganaise (mayyyyyyybe 2 tablespoons a month) i just stick to veganaise.

    What kind of veganaise do u use i wonder, for it to be so unhealthy.

    I use follow your heart grape seed veganaise. you might wanna consider it.


  • germin8germin8 Raw Master

    I did end up using the Cashew Mayonnaise recipe and liked it. I did sprinkle in a tad bit of nutritional yeast.

  • LauroliLauroli Raw Newbie

    SimplyRaw~ I tried the ranch last night and it made my salad a blissful experience. I love how tangy it is! Great mayo substitute. And that Sunny Raw blog is so inspirational I might never need to buy an uncook book again!

  • So happy to hear you found it as heavenly as I did.

    It is such an "OMG" recipe!!

  • BetterBody Avocado Oil Mayonnaise is one of the best substitute For Vegenaise. There are many options available from this brand, but the most suitable mayo option for diet is the avocado oil mayonnaise.
