I have this habit of leaving my gym bag pockets unzipped. It’s partly because I’m lazy, but it’s also partly because I have never had anything fall out so I never had incentive to zip them up. Well, that was until two weeks ago when I lost my eyeliner. And since it was a bit pricey, I am sure you can imagine how excited I was when I found it in my yard a few days ago. Even though it was a bit weathered and the brand name had been rubbed off, it still worked great.
However, this morning upon closer inspection of the weathered brand name, I discovered that this was not actually my eyeliner. Lesson learned: zip your gym bag and don’t use eyeliner you find in your yard.
Another important lesson I learned this week is how to make amazingly creamy mayo — without the eggs or added oils! So let’s get to work!
I’ve been craving a creamy spread for sandwiches this week so I went searching for healthier mayo options. This mayo uses silken tofu and cashews for a creamy, oil-free and egg-free spread that will delight your tastebuds and amp up any cold sandwich. Add basil or your favorite herbs for an extra boost of summer delight.
- ½ block organic firm silken tofu
- ⅓ cup raw cashews
- ½ teaspoon spicy brown mustard
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- sea salt to taste
- ¼ cup loosely packed basil leaves
- Drain water from tofu and place tofu, cashews, mustard, lemon juice, garlic powder, and salt in a high-speed blender or food processor. Blend at highest speed until light and creamy. Add the basil and blend again. Seal tightly and keep refrigerated. Stir before each use.
