Vegan Garlic Aioli Recipe

If you have ever wondered why so many RAW Vegan’s have smiles on their faces, it’s because they enjoy some of the most amazing flavours that nature can throw at them.

Take this Garlic Cashew Mayo/Aioli for example – once you pre-soak the cashews for 2-4 hours, you have the basis of a creamy, garlic aioli or mayonnaise – and because of the lemon juice and olive oil, it keeps well in the refrigerator.  Once you try this, you’ll never choose store-bought mayo again.
