Ingredients & Substitutions: What Is In Vegan Mayocue Dip

Next up, you’ll need 2 tablespoons of vegan BBQ sauce. This is where the smoky and tangy flavors come from. Choose your favorite brand or make your own if you’re feeling adventurous!

To give the mayo a little kick, we’ll add 1/2 teaspoon of smoked paprika. This is a spice that adds a smoky and slightly sweet flavor to dishes.

For a savory flavor, we’ll add 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder. These spices are staples in many kitchens and will add depth to the mayo.

Finally, if you want to give your vegan BBQ mayo a little tanginess, you can add 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. This is an optional ingredient, but it adds a nice touch to the overall flavor.

Mix all these ingredients together and you’ll have a delicious and flavorful vegan mayocue dip that will take your BBQ dishes to the next level!

Helpful Tools

When it comes to making this vegan BBQ mayo, there are a few helpful tools that can make the process even easier.

Firstly, a small mixing bowl is essential. This will give you enough space to combine all the ingredients together and ensure that they’re well mixed.

A spoon or spatula is also necessary to mix the ingredients. Make sure you use a sturdy one that can handle the thickness of the mayo and sauce.

If you’re using fresh garlic instead of garlic powder, a garlic press can come in handy. This will help you crush the garlic cloves into a fine paste without making a mess.

Lastly, a measuring spoon is essential for ensuring that you add the right amount of each ingredient. This will help you get the perfect balance of smoky, tangy, and savory flavors in your vegan dip.
