Here’s an all-tofu mayonnaise, but your family may never suspect, especially if you add a tablespoon or more of prepared mayonnaise—a good idea if you’re nervous about it. This will keep, refrigerated, for up to five days.

Yield: Makes about 1 cup


  • 6 ounces soft tofu, well drained, or ½ box silken tofu
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mayonnaise (optional)
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2½ teaspoons fresh lemon juice or vinegar (red or white wine)
  • Salt and freshly ground white pepper


1. Put the tofu in a food processor with the mayonnaise, if using, and oil. Puree until smooth. Scrape down the sides.

2. Add the garlic, mustard, lemon juice, and ¼ teaspoon salt, and puree until smooth. Taste for salt and season with a little pepper. Scrape into a bowl and refrigerate until ready to use.
