SO HOW'D IT GO?

I have tried several recipes for mayo and I like this one the best. It's the closest to Veganaise. Next time I am going to try shellylovesmoo's suggestion and use Energ G just to see how it turns out. Thanks for a great recipe!

;)b awesome! i made my own mayo! yay! thanks for this recipe, what a money saver. it taste just like mayo, i tweaked it a bit though. I did 2T of apple cider vinegar instead of 3T of lemon juice and i added a splash of plain soy milk, onion and garlic powder and already prepared mustard instead of ground.

Wow. Why have I been buying veganse? This is so easy, and really tasty. I used only 3/4 cups of canola oil, the juice of one smallish lemon, and spices as written. I can't wait to play with the spice - add some garlici, dill, etc. My flax seeds showed up too - it's kinda brown, but who cares if it tastes good?! Very thick and yummy! Thanks.

Came out very good and thick. I used a hand blender and it was too thick, so I added some water. I am going to share this with my vegan cooking class in Dec. Thanks for a good recipe.

Wow! Tastes just like the real thing (from what I remember). My flax wasn't quite ground fine enough so there were flecks in it, but that's no big deal. I did cut back on the lemon juice though because after adding about a third of it, I tested it and it was just perfect at that point. I mixed it with my hand mixer using the whip attachment with no difficulty.  Definitely my go-to recipe for "mayonnaise".

The key is to add the oil as slowly as possible while blending! Taste and texture were great
