Cinco Vegan Mayos for Cinco de Mayo, Vegan Tofu Mayonnaise, Vegan Tahini Mayonnaise, Vegan Avocado Mayonnaise, Vegan Flax Seed Mayonnaise, Vegan Cashew Mayonnaise, Egg-free Mayonnaise

Here at Kale Crusaders we rarely drop the "V" word. Our objective is to highlight the variety plant-based foods and the versatility of such ingredients, as well as showcase vegan recipes (or simple-to-veganize recipes) of talented food bloggers.

One awesome outcome of vegan cooking is the kitchen creativity born out of constraints: by cutting out a small number of ingredients, you avail yourself to many more that can serve a similar purpose. Let's take mayonnaise. Leaving out eggs and introduces you to five potentially new ingredients: tofu, tahini, avocado, flax seeds, and cashews.
  1. Tofu Mayonnaise by Cheryl Hurley at The Laidback Vegan
  2. Egg-free Olive Oil [Tahini] Mayo by Karina Allrich at Gluten-Free Goddess 
  3. Avocado Vegan Mayonnaise by Chantale Michaud at Eat Heal Love
  4. Egg-less [Flax Seed] Mayo by Melissa Joulwan at The Clothes Make the Girl
  5. Cashew Mayo by Kiersten Frase at Oh My Veggies
P.S. Vegans aren't the only ones expanding their creativity in the kitchen as a result of dietary limitations. The gluten-free, Paleo, low-fat, and various allergen-free crowds are also whipping up inventive dishes.

P.P.S. Happy Cinco de Mayo!
