Vegan Smoked Mayonnaise Potato Salad

Mayonnaise is one of those things that is so versatile in everyday life with a little flavour tweak here and there and the possibilities are endless we all know them, sandwiches, dips and a base for salad dressings are just a few.

This potato salad has a base of vegan mayonnaise made with the smoked rape seed oil made by Fussels* a company making lovely single estate cold pressed oils in Somerset.

Vegan Smoked Mayonnaise

1 Tbsp Vinegar
1/2 Tsp Mustard powder
1/2 Tsp Salt
3 Tbsp Aqua faba (chick pea liquid)
1/4 Smoked Rapeseed Oil
1/4 to 1/2 Cup of Rapeseed Oil

In a food processor add the vinegar mustard salt and Aqua faba blend until slightly frothed, slowly add the oil through the feeder tube, slowly is the key, you should get a lovely thick mayonnaise, really gorgeous colour as a result of the Fussels* oil

The smoked oil is quiet a strong flavour so play around with the balance of the plain and smoked oil to achieve the amount of smokiness that works for you.

Vegan Potato Salad

1Lb New potatoes
2 Spring Onions
1 Stick Celery
4 Tbsp Vegan Smoked Mayonnaise
1 Tbsp Vegan sour cream
1/2 Tsp wHole grain mustard
Sea Salt to taste

No brainier here just cook the potatoes chop the celery and Spring onion, combine the rest of the ingredients to make the dressing and mix with the potatoes, spring onion and celery.

You could use other oils for this but rapeseed is particularly good as the flavour is not as strong as olive and adds a great yellow colour to the mayonnaise, we used the tofutti sour cream available in your favourite health food store.
