Macadamia 'vegannaise'


Servings: 4

You don’t need to be vegan to enjoy the wonderful flavours of this simple but healthy twist on a classic mayonnaise. The macadamias make a deliciously creamy and versatile condiment in just minutes.


  • ½ cup macadamias
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (or to taste)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • ½ cup Macadamia Oil


  1. Place the macadamias and water in a high-speed blender and blend for 2-3 minutes until thoroughly combined.
  2. Add the mustard, lemon juice and salt and blend to combine. With the motor running, add the oil in a thin, steady stream until the mixture thickens. Initially it won’t be as thick as a traditional mayonnaise, but will thicken further with refrigeration.
  3. Season to taste with extra lemon juice and salt if desired.
  4. Serve with sweet potato chips, sprinkled with coriander and chilli flakes.
