Aquafaba Ranch and Tartar Sauce

2 Dec

So apparently I’m a little late to this party, because people have been making mayo with aquafaba since April. Can you believe it’s only been in the past year that aquafaba has been discovered? It seems like I read about it everywhere now!

While I’m a big fan of Just Mayo by Hampton Creek, I also love to be able to make things from scratch. Tonight we’re having a fish fry with Sophie’s Kitchen Vegan Shrimp and Gardein Fishless Filets, so tartar sauce was a must. The ranch? Well, I’m saving it for pizza Friday. I know I’m not the only person who dips pizza in ranch, so stop giving me that weird look.

Ingredients:
3 tbsp aquafaba
1 tbsp raw apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp ground mustard (natural emulsifier, don’t omit!)
1/4 tsp black salt (for eggy flavor)
1/4 tsp salt
3/4-1 cup neutral oil

Directions:
1. Combine first 6 ingredients in a tall container and stir to blend. Using an immersion blender, pulse aquafaba until beginning to froth.  Continue blending with the immersion blender on low, slowly drizzle oil in until desired consistency is obtained.

    I haven’t begun to experiment with aquafaba in savoury recipes at all yet. How was the mayo compared to commercial versions?… Your tartar sauce sounds great (and so easy)! I love that stuff on fries 🙂

      I felt it was a little thinner, but the taste was great!! I think if I had added more oil it would have been just as thick at vegenaise or just mayo.
