This vegan mayonnaise is super-easy to make, plus you can add lots of different flavours to it, such as herbs and spices, if you wish. This recipe makes a 250ml jar, and lasts for a good week in the fridge, too. You can save your chickpeas for hummus or any other recipe – they last about 3–4 days in the fridge.

Ingredients:3½ tbsp aquafaba (liquid from tinned chickpeas)
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
120ml organic rapeseed oil (organic is usually a lot yellower)
60ml olive oil
1 tsp Dijon mustard
a pinch of salt and freshly cracked black pepper
- Put the aquafaba, lemon juice and apple cider vinegar in a bowl and whisk with an electric whisk until combined.
- Whisking continuously, gradually begin to add the rapeseed oil until the mixture emulsifies and starts coming together as a mayonnaise.
- Continue whisking and slowly adding the olive oil until it's all incorporated. Season with mustard, salt and pepper to taste.
