This Vegan Aioli (garlic mayonnaisse) will blow your mind! It tastes JUST like the real thing! There’s a magic ingredient here that makes all the difference… hint, it’s SUPER common. Read on to find out how to make it!
Let’s get straight into it. The magic ingredient in this vegan aioli is chickpea water… or aquafaba. Now if you’re sitting there thinking… what?! Then just bear with me. If you’ve been throwing away the water from a can of chickpeas for years, then you’re missing out on one of the best, and most powerful egg replacers ever!
The science behind it all (geek moment) is still being researched, but the proteins found in aquafaba seem to mimic those found in egg whites, so when used in the same proportions, they have the same effect.
Homemade mayonaisse is one of the easiest things in the world to make, and this vegan aioli is a wonderful addition to a sandwich. I promise NONE of your non vegan friends would know the difference if you didn’t tell them this mayo was vegan.
