Smoky Chipotle Mayo [vegan] by The Flexitarian

Smoky Chipotle Mayo [vegan]

This rich and smoky vegan chipotle mayo is my new favourite sauce. It goes with pretty much everything.

This mayonnaise sauce gets its hot and spicy smoky flavour from smoked paprika and chipotle

100% plant-based it is made with aquafaba (chickpea brine). Unlike conventional mayonnaise, this vegan version requires no eggs as aquafaba acts as a thickener and gives it its silky smooth consistency.

To make this smoky chipotle mayo sauce, you will need a good quality handheld immersion blender (such as this Kenwood Hand Blender) which will give you better results than an electric mixer. Using the blade (rather than the whisk attachment), all you have to do is to mix all the ingredients together, adding the oil very slowly. The more oil you add, the thicker the mayonnaise will get.

Instead of throwing it away, keep the brine from canned chickpeas. High in protein, aquafaba is such a magical ingredient that can substitute eggs in meringueschocolate mousse, cakes etc..

If you prefer a plain vegan mayo why not try my vegan aquafaba mayo below which also compliment perfectly plant-based burgers, fries, potatoes,  sandwiches etc…
