  • ¾ cup (150g) vegan mayonnaise*
  • 3 garlic cloves (12 to 15g)
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 ½ tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Several cracks of black pepper or ¼ teaspoon white pepper


  • Use a grater or microplane to grate the garlic. Add the garlic to a small or medium bowl, along with the salt, lemon zest, lemon juice, and mustard. Allow to rest for 10 to 15 minutes to mellow out the garlic.
  • Stir this mixture into the mayo. Transfer to a jar, cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour before using.
