Sir Kensington’s Classic Vegan Mayo

One Simply Terrific Thing

I wasn't looking to make a vegan mayonnaise a staple in my pantry, it happened anyway! That's how good this is.


Welcome to One Simply Terrific Thing, our ongoing series highlighting the small tools and kitchen goods that make life better!

I am not vegan, but my favorite mayonnaise is a vegan mayonnaise … which tells you something about how good I think it is!

I’m talking about Sir Kensington’s Classic Vegan Mayo. Have you ever tried it? If you don’t eat a vegan diet, you may have never bought it. I first tried it a few years ago when it was still called Sir Kensington’s Fabanaise, a play on the fact that the mayo was (and still is!) made from sunflower oil and aquafaba, the viscous liquid found in a can of chickpeas or leftover after cooking a pot of homemade chickpeas.

Aquafaba has long been known to be a great egg substitute in vegan baking, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that it works really well in mayo, too.

The thing I love about the Sir Kensington’s vegan mayo is that it … tastes like mayo, but without eggs, slightly less saturated fat, and no cholesterol. It has a great flavor and consistency, right on par with regular mayo: it’s creamy, rich-tasting, with just a little bit of tang, but without the greasy or super heavy texture you get sometimes with traditional mayonnaise.

I use it freely in any and all recipes that call for mayo: BLTs, tartar sauce, egg salad, tuna salad, you name it.

So while I wasn’t looking to make a vegan mayonnaise a staple in my pantry, it happened anyway! And now I’m not going back.
