frequently asked Questions

Is Classic Sriracha Mayo Vegan?

Classic Sriracha mayo is not vegan as it is a sauce made with mayonnaise that itself contains eggs.

However, some brands that make sriracha mayo make it vegan by using soybean oil instead of eggs.

But if you want to make it yourself, then read on this recipe and learn how to make egg-free, oil-free and vegan sriracha mayonnaise.

Is This Spicy Cashew Mayonnaise Healthy?

Yes, this spicy cashew mayo is a healthy alternative to store-bought sriracha mayo sauce.

Because we replaced the classic high-fat mayonnaise with low-fat cashew mayonnaise.

Our vegan cashew mayonnaise recipe contains no eggs or oil, just raw cashews and some spices.

Cashews have practically half the fat compared to oil, they have far less saturated fat than eggs, and they’re also a source of fiber.

This means your Sriracha Mayo contains a fraction of the fat and is a healthier choice.

What is the ratio of sriracha to mayo to make sriracha mayo?

When preparing sriracha mayo at home, use the 1:3 ratio of sriracha to mayo. That means 1 part sriracha sauce to 3 parts mayonnaise.

For example, you can make a jar of this sauce by mixing 60g (2 oz) of sriracha with 180g (6.5 oz) of vegan mayo.

How do you make sriracha mayo vegan?

You can make a vegan alternative to sriracha mayonnaise by substituting plant-based mayonnaise or cashew cream for egg mayonnaise.

Sriracha mayo is basically a mix of Thai sriracha sauce and mayonnaise.

Sriracha sauce is already vegan, so all you have to do is replace the egg-based mayo with a vegan alternative.

You can use store-bought vegan mayonnaise or you can make a healthy and low-fat vegan mayo alternative using just raw cashews.

Does Sriracha Mayo Have Dairy?

Sriracha Mayo is dairy free as it is made with only Thai Sriracha sauce and mayonnaise. This means that the classic sauce only contains eggs and no dairy products.

If you also want to make sriracha mayonnaise without eggs, you can swap out the mayonnaise for our super easy vegan cashew mayonnaise.

How Spicy is Sriracha Mayo?

Sriracha mayo is only slightly spicy and definitely milder than Sriracha sauce alone. That’s because it’s only 25% Sriracha and the rest is just mayonnaise.

Additionally, Sriracha sauce is already a mild hot sauce, ranking well below other hot sauces such as Tabasco.

So when you mix sriracha with mayo, you get a lightly flavored sauce that’s rich, sweet, garlicky, and not too spicy.

What can you make with this vegan sriracha mayonnaise?

Sriracha mayo goes well with many Thai, Chinese and Japanese dishes such as sushi, stir-fries, poke bowls, noodles and tempura.

You can try it as a filling in our vegan crunchy California rolls or drizzle it over our plant-based “ebi” mayo.

This sauce is also great for dishes like salads, burgers, tacos, fries, nuggets, and hash browns.

Try it with your favorite veggie burger or use it as a dip for tofu nuggets, Japanese pumpkin croquettes or eggplant fries.
