Eggless Mayonnaise Recipe | Homemade Low Fat, Gluten Free Mayonnaise

Eggless Mayonnaise Recipe

I had always bought store bought Mayonnaise to be used as a spread for sandwiches for my kids. Though it is very easy to make at home, I never felt comfortable storing them as they are made of raw eggs, there is always the scare of salmonella infection. Also I cannot finish them all within a day or two either, but recently when I wanted to use it as a dressing in Salads, I had to go for an eggless one as I do not eat eggs.  If you are on a diet and looking for a healthy, low fat Mayonnaise recipe, this is the perfect spread for you. The most important thing is that it stays good for 10 days when kept refrigerated so there is no wastage as well.

    Thank you for this recipe. My son (who is allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, and eggs) just turned 19 yesterday and he’s really been wanting me to make an eggless mayo (we had gotten some store bought when he was little but we since moved and couldn’t find it again). We both just made this today. I didn’t have mustard powder so my son crushed a little mustard seed (it looks like mustard seed in your photo), and that worked fine. I also used 1 Tbsp olive oil with 1 Tbsp Italian dressing. Ours got quite thick, so maybe next time I’ll try 3 Tbsp cornstarch instead of 4 (not sure if that will help or not). I ended up adding some more Italian dressing and squirting some prepared mustard in it too. It’s quite good. Son had it on a bun with ham and cheese for lunch. It was super easy to make and it seems easier to make than some other recipes we saw that needed odd ingredients we don’t normally have on hand, like flax seed. Thanks again!
