Chickpea Patties and Quick n’ Cheap Vegan Mayo

Before I went vegan, I had mayo with everything. Loved it dolloped over pizza, but i have to say im too much of a cheapskate to buy gars of vegan mayo, so I like to make my own and as lovely as cashew mayo is its not as cheap as this mayo, its super tasty in a sammich with these patties.


Makes 4 patties.

1 tin of chickpeas, mashed
3 tbsp tomato paste
1 shallot, finley diced
2 tbsp tamari/soy sauce
1 tsp oregano
1 tbsp paprika
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp olive oil
1 clove of garlic, minced
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
3 tbsp bread crumbs

Mix everything together with a fork, adding the bread crumbs last. Split the mix into four and roll each bit into a ball then flatten into a patty shape. Preheat a frying pan with some vegetable oil to a medium/high heat, add the patties one or two at a time and fry until golden on each side. Serve in bums with lettuce and tomato and a dollop of vegan mayo.


1/2 cup vegetable/canola oil
1/4 cup soy milk
pinch o’ salt
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
2 tsp minced chilli (optional)

blend everything together in a food processor untill smooth, thick and glossy. This is great with sweet potato chips.

  1. Alexander, not only do those chickpea patties look fantastic, but I had no idea you could make vegan mayo without tofu. I’m a secret mayo fiend. I love mayo on everything too. Try not to consume too many oils, but vegenaise (vegan mayo brand here) is delicious and irresistible. I can’t wait to try this.

  2. Thanks for sharing your mayo recipe! I personally find mayo to be revolting but it is sometimes necessary in recipes, like one I would like to try for crab-cakes, but I never have it on hand because it grosses me out so much. I’m a pescatarian so don’t really NEED the vegan option, but knowing I can make it at home is awesome.

    I really like your blog! 🙂
