1 tablespoon 15mlNutritional yeast flakes
1 teaspoon 5mlLecithin granules = (or 1 tbspn liquid lecithin)
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlOnion powder
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlGarlic powder

1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlSalt
1/2 cup 118mlSafflower oil
3 tablespoons 45mlWater
4 teaspoons 20mlApple cider vinegar
4 teaspoons 20mlLemon juice

Recipe Instructions

Begin by blanching the almonds. In a small saucepan, place 2 inches of water, and bring to a boil. Add the almonds and cook for 1 minute to blanch them. Remove the saucepan from the heat and set aside for 3 minutes to cool.

Remove the almonds from the water, squeeze each almond between your thumb and forefinger to remove their skins, and set them aside for 5 minutes to dry and cool.

Place the almonds in a blender or food processor and process for 1 to 2 minutes to finely grind them. Add the nutritional yeast, lecithin, onion powder, garlic powder, kelp, and salt, and process for 30 seconds to combine.

In a small measuring cup, combine the oil and water, and add the mixture to the blender in a slow stream while the machine is running. Scrape down the sides of the container, add the vinegar and lemon juice, and continue to process the mixture an additional 1 to 2 minutes or until thickened.

Transfer the mixture to an airtight container and chill for 30 minutes or more before using, to allow the flavors to blend. Use as a replacement for soy mayonnaise in recipes, also as a condiment or spread on sandwiches, a dip for raw veggies or chips, or a sauce for vegetables and grains.
