Friends, the motivation behind this blog post is the search for real, tasty, easy, doable, budget friendly and authentic vegan recipes.
Vegan products are not easy to find on the store shelves in India ( Stores basically cater to metro cities at present)
Apart from that, they are quite pricy for the quantity. Also, with homemade products, one at least knows what goes into them.
Over the months and many experiments later, I have figured out a few vegan recipes that fit the above criteria.
The quest for homemade, easy, simple, budget friendly and tasty Vegan Mayonnaise led me to experiment with a few easily available ingredients in my kitchen.
Here, I would like to share my Vegan Mayonnaise recipe with all of you….

Vegan means no dairy, and soy,oats milk does not suit everyone. Almond and Cashew milk is pricy. Also, you might be on a budget or out of stock.
One staple in our homes is potato. Money saver, popular, tasty, versatile, blends with everything.
Though, many years ago, I had heard someone mention potato mayonnaise as a substitute for the regular non-vegetarian mayonnaise. At that point in time, it was not a priority with me, but it reminded embedded in my memory.
Years later, now forced due to circumstances, my interest has turned into experimenting with vegan recipes.
This led me to experiment with the versatile Potato. Truly, the Potato is King as I found out when the creamy, smooth Potato Mayo was gobbled up by my family.
Frankly, potato was all I remembered from my conversation years back. Now, I had to rustle up a mayo by hit and trial.
This labour of love is a hit in my household. Armed with just a large boiled potato, my brain went into overdrive and the experiment led to the most delicious Potato vegan mayo.
So, all those mayo lovers, don’t loose heart, vegan Potato mayo will not disappoint you.
Have it any which way, toast, any bread, roti, crackers, soup sticks….
