Ingredients List

Serves 1
  • 100 g silken tofu
  • tbsp mustard
  • 0.5 medium lemon (extract juice from)
  • 1 dl flaxseed oil


  1. Blend the silken tofu, mustard and lemon juice together until smooth.
  2. Add the flaxseed oil and continue to blend until desired consistency.
  • Add some chopped garlic to the mix and blend with the tofu for an aioli equivalent.
  • Try adding some other spices, like curry or paprika.
  • This mayonnaise works very well as a dip for raw or cooked vegetables, or as a binder in making potato cakes.
  • Keeps for several days covered in the refrigerator. 
  • If you don’t like the taste of flaxseed oil, substitute for extra virgin olive oil.
