Vegan coleslaw

Veganaise, where have you been all of my life?


I used to use plain goat’s milk yogurt instead of you –which I still enjoy- but nothing can replicate a true mayonnaise-y taste minus the raw eggs… except you, Veganaise.

veganaise (2)

I usually stay away from soy products, but this one doesn’t hurt my stomach….and it tastes just like mayonnaise.

That is all that needs to be said.

veganaise (3) 

(I actually ate some plain out of the jar, which I admitted to the Pilot and he laughed at me)

I’ve had this coleslaw almost every day for the past week:

-1 T Veganaise

-1/2 T almond milk

-1 t Dijon mustard

-1/2 t raw honey

-sea salt, pepper, cayenne, garlic powder

Mix :


add broccoli slaw or coleslaw mix:


and feast!! Hopefully it will rock your world as much as it has mine.

I’m going to go make some right about now….

See ya in the morning with a reader’s request! <3



What’s your current condiment love??

    I’ve been so curious about Veganaise because I love mayo… well, the way it tastes anyway. Will need to go pick this up 🙂

  2. Christie Lombardo on May 4, 2011 at 10:11 pm

    Trader Joes Spicy Garlic Mustard!

  3. Allison @ Food For Healing on May 4, 2011 at 10:13 pm

    i have never tried veganaise, but i use regular mayo so ya know.
    I really dont use very many condiments to be honest. But i have a feeling my next new “thing” will be the cinnamon raisin swirl peanut butter i picked up today!

  4. Becky @ on May 4, 2011 at 10:13 pm

    Currently I don’t eat anything that uses condiments, only spices.

    But I used to love using salsa to spice up a boring meal, it’s so good with anything from rice to chicken to veggies and salad. So good.

    And of course mustard. If anything needs mustard I always load up. Maybe I’m weird.

    Less healthy but total favorite, SOUR CREAM. I could eat it by the spoonful. Yep, I’m weird!

  5. Vanessa @ Swift as Shadows on May 4, 2011 at 10:16 pm

    I’m in LOVE with Trader Joe’s Goddess dressing (I think it’s a dupe for the Annie’s kind). It’s especially good on fresh spinach. =)

  6. Angela on May 4, 2011 at 10:24 pm

    Never seen Grapeseed kind….hmm something new to try!

  7. aneessa on May 4, 2011 at 10:30 pm

    oooo i’m all about condiments! Dipping and spreading are my favorite 🙂 Currently I’m really enjoying Trader Joe’s Sweet Chilli Sauce. It’s a sweet and tangy flavor to welcome in the hot summer days (which I hope are on their way soon!)

  8. Kelly @ Laughter, Strength, and Food on May 4, 2011 at 10:32 pm

    I am all about BBQ sauce right now. I’m not sure where the obsession came from, but I use it for everything!

  9. Astrid on May 4, 2011 at 10:39 pm

    just had a sandwich with hummus and dijon mustard, so good together!

  10. Stephanie @ StephSnacks on May 4, 2011 at 10:41 pm

    Honey counts right? 😛 Doesn’t Starbucks have little packets of honey??

  11. Claire on May 4, 2011 at 11:06 pm

    Obsessed with Mama Pea’s white bean guacamole! I’ve been using it to make egg and tuna salads, used with black beans in tacos/taco salads, on sandwiches, with scrambled eggs, with a spoon…

  12. Erin on May 4, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    All condiments really!
    I just wanted to say I really love that you’ve been adding some fun, new foods in your diet. You seem more relaxed and still super duper healthy. It’s awesome! I used to eat ridiculously strictly, and then I sort of went bananas the other way, and just now seem to be finding a happy place. All this to say, I really admire that you stay so healthy and still relaxed about your food.
    Sorry, that was a little off topic from veganaise.

  13. mi-an on May 4, 2011 at 11:47 pm

    dude i hecka LOVE vegenaise too!!! it’s even better than mayonaise!!!
    when i went to buenos aires last month, they had this thing called salsa golf: mixture of ketchup, mustard and mayo. soo good!! i bought some to bring back home! 🙂 next i’ll make my own salsa golf using vegenaise.

  14. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on May 5, 2011 at 12:10 am

    Girl I have been posting about my love of Vegenaise for 2 years! My vegan slaw dressing, there was a time when I relinked it daily til I figured out not everyone may care that I eat vegenaise, daily, in the form of all kinds of sauces, dressings, and dips I make…but they usually all start with vegenaise. I LOVE THE STUFF! haha!

    I also used to eat miracle whip with a spoon so go figure 🙂

    Love your recipe, pretty much anything with honey + vegenaise is off to a great start!

  15. Courtney (greeneyedrunner) on May 5, 2011 at 2:16 am

    Salsa…can’t stay away.

  16. Cait @ Beyond Bananas on May 5, 2011 at 5:48 am

    How awesome. My two condiment loves.. are mustard and hot sauce. Love them.. not sure what i would do without them!

  17. ellalinea on May 5, 2011 at 5:49 am

    I’ve never tried veganaise before.. Curious now :))

    My favorites are sweet n sour thai chili and hummus! 🙂

  18. Erin @ The Grass Skirt on May 5, 2011 at 7:26 am

    Vegenaise is my favorite too! We’d be lost without it in my household. My husband really loves it and is constantly telling everyone that it tastes better than traditional mayo.

  19. Katie G. on May 5, 2011 at 7:31 am

    I’m not a mayo fan, never have been. But I am a HUGE salsa fan…right now I am obsessed with Costco’s Cowboy Caviar….it’s basically a bean salsa with lots of cilantro, lime, and good stuff. It’s hearty enough to put in a wrap and eat plain or enjoy with chips or as a meal topping. Love this stuff!

  20. Holly @ The Runny Egg on May 5, 2011 at 7:44 am

    I’m not a big mayo fan — I just don’t need to use it too often and regular mayo sits ok with me. I am actually in love with marinara sauce as a condiment — I dump it on everything.

  21. SJ on May 5, 2011 at 7:48 am

    my favourite is always Tahini 🙂

  22. Errign on May 5, 2011 at 8:13 am

    I am a fan of BBQ sauce, TJ Champagne Vinaigrette, and Gulden’s spicy brown mustard. Never was a mayo fan..Glad you’re loving the Veganaise though!

  23. jenna on May 5, 2011 at 8:15 am

    hmmm..i’ve always wondered about this…….are you sure it tastes good? lol i’m sorry i just get scared of vegan products that claim to be just like the ‘real’ thing. 🙂 i hope you had a great day at work!

    • Fitnessista on May 5, 2011 at 9:48 am

      i wouldn’t eat it with a spoon if it didn’t taste good 😉

  24. Elizabeth @ RunWithSneakers on May 5, 2011 at 8:25 am

    I love Veganaise too! My favorite condiment is spicy brown mustard. Mustard + Veganaise is fantastic.

  25. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on May 5, 2011 at 8:25 am

    I always use yogurt in place of mayo, but sometimes I still crave that mayoish flavour. I want to try veganaise now!

    I love Stonewall Kitchen’s maple champagne mustard!

  26. Katherine on May 5, 2011 at 8:36 am

    My fiance and I just bought a tiny jar of Turkish fig spread from a gourmet store by our apartment. It cost like $10 for the mini jar but it’s SO good and we have been putting it on everything!

  27. Megan on May 5, 2011 at 8:47 am

    It’s good to hear you liked this- We tried a different brand of soy mayo, and we REALLY didn’t like it. Does this one taste like real mayo, or like Miracle Whip? We’re real mayo fans 😉

  28. Claire @ Live and Love to Eat on May 5, 2011 at 8:50 am

    I’ve yet to purchase this product but now I might have to try it!

  29. Kristin (Cook, Bake and Nibble) on May 5, 2011 at 8:57 am

    I *really* try and stay away from fake foods, but I love veganaise fom time to time as well! My favorite condiment, though not really a condiment, I suppose- its nutritional yeast. I use it on evvverything- because I need my B12, right? 😉 I’m also loving some maple dijon mustard I aquired. Yum!


  30. chelsey @ clean eating chelsey on May 5, 2011 at 9:12 am

    I was only a miracle whip (yuck!) kind of girl growing up.

  31. Evan Thomas on May 5, 2011 at 9:21 am

    I love the Nasoya brand fake mayonnaise. It has some dijon mustard mixed into it and is heavenly. I try not to eat it often or I’ll end up eating it off a spoon.

    • jen on May 5, 2011 at 6:36 pm

      yes the Nasoya Nayonaise Dijon Style is soo good, love it. If you send them an email for coupons they send some good ones. I love it on my veggie burgers!

  32. Stephanie @ Vegetarian Bakeaholic on May 5, 2011 at 9:24 am

    I’ve been really curious to try veganaise. I have problems with mayo being SO caloric. And I can’t find low-fat mayo that doesn’t have weird stuff in it to compensate for the low-fatness. So veganaise it is.

  33. LisaG on May 5, 2011 at 9:33 am

    I love veganaise; tastes like the real deal. And I was always a fan of Hellman’s. I’m still loving the Herdez salsa you got me addicted to. I bought some other fresh brand at the Publix deli; also tasty. Also don’t know if it’s considered a condiment really, but the So Delicious brand Coconut Creamer I’ve been using in my coffee tastes better than regular Half& Half.

  34. Gina on May 5, 2011 at 9:34 am

    Last night I made some spicy vegan mayo using Nasoya vegan mayo and sriracha sauce. It was perfect with sweet potato fries!!

  35. Samantha on May 5, 2011 at 10:20 am

    Never been a mayo fan, but I just went through a jar of almond butter in 4 days.

    • Fitnessista on May 6, 2011 at 1:03 am

      atta girl 😉

  36. Genevieve on May 5, 2011 at 11:06 am

    Ok so here is my question about Vegananise…Does it taste like Hellmans’s(Best Foods for you west coasters) or Miracle Whip?? because there is a HUGE difference between those two. I loathe Miracle Whip but love Hellman’s and want to make sure before I drop 7 bucks on this stuff I won’t be tossing it. Anyone have an answer???

    • Fitnessista on May 6, 2011 at 1:02 am

      i wouldn’t be the one to know. i haven’t head real mayo in years… and now veganaise came along 🙂

  37. Mary (What's Cookin' with Mary) on May 5, 2011 at 11:32 am

    Ever since seeing Vegenaise on Averie’s blog I’ve been in love. I don’t use mayo very often, so the small jar lasts us forver… I reaaaaally love how it tastes like real mayo.

  38. JavaChick on May 5, 2011 at 12:17 pm

    I don’t like real mayo (i.e. I don’t like Hellman’s) – I’ve wondered about Veganaise; if it really tastes like mayo I might not like that either. If I use anything mayo-like, it’s usually Miracle Whip, but I rarely do. I eat a lot of hummus, guacamole & salsa though. I use them on top of salads. 🙂

  39. Katherine: Unemployed on May 5, 2011 at 3:06 pm

    I can never get enough mustard but have not had good experiences with the veganaise. maybe it’s just the methods it’s been used?

    • jen on May 5, 2011 at 6:38 pm

      try Nasoya Nayonaise Dijon Style, its like a mayo-mustard really good and vegan!

  40. bonnie on May 5, 2011 at 4:37 pm

    yum! i wish they had this in the grocery stores by me. i’m dying to try this

  41. Lindsay on May 5, 2011 at 5:29 pm

    I just recently discovered Vegenaise as well! That stuff is bomb! Your cole slaw recipe looks delicious. I think I might have to try it with some of the red cabbage that I have laying around! 🙂

  42. rae on May 5, 2011 at 5:48 pm

    what is broccoli slaw and how do you make it?

    • Fitnessista on May 6, 2011 at 12:56 am

      you buy it! it’s broccoli stalks shaved into “slaw”

  43. Natalie on May 5, 2011 at 6:22 pm

    Does TJ’s peanut butter cream cheese count as a condiment? Because I have put it on a CRAZY amount of items lately (apples, pretzels, bagels, pita, tortilla, mmmmmmm)

  44. Gina @ Walk to the Mailbox on May 5, 2011 at 8:11 pm

    Trader Joe’s Salsa Verde! Obsessed!

  45. Lauren@hungryspinner on May 6, 2011 at 7:31 am

    I love salsa or hot sauce right now… Im in a SpIcY mood i guess 🙂

  46. Caity @ Moi Contre La Vie on May 9, 2011 at 2:09 pm

    Just bought my first jar, thanks for the inspiration, I’m excited to try it!

  47. Christie on May 11, 2011 at 9:55 pm

    New to your blog – it’s great!! Just wanted to suggest apple cider vinegar in place of the mustard in your slaw and throw in some raisins. Heaven!!

    • Fitnessista on May 11, 2011 at 9:59 pm

      YUM! ok 🙂
