Day 93: Vegan - aise

While I don't recommend this recipe as a meal unto itself, I do find it helpful in making a lot of meals! I LOVE veganaise but dang its expensive! This whips up in a jiffy and is much more affordable. It also makes a great salad dressing.


½ cup of rice milk, plain and preferably unsweetened
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons of canola oil
2 tb of apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon of agave
1 teaspoon of kosher salt
1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
zest from 1/8 of an organic lemon
1 teaspoon of mustard
1/2 c cashews

Blend everything in the food processor but the oil. Gradually add the oil at a slow trickle while blending. Once all the oil is incorporated blend for a few more minutes till it starts to thicken a bit then pour into a container ( I use a squeezable ketchup container) and put in the fridge. Let sit over night and it will thicken. I find I can only make one batch at a time or it doesn't thicken properly. Have fun with this! Try add ins such as herbs or seasoning salt.
