I love making my own condiments using vegan mayonnaise as a base. Vegan mayonnaise, just like the regular variety, is a terrific starter for a number of spreads and dips. These two recipes are probably my most-used - a 'garlic aioli'-style garlic and chive spread and a zesty chipotle spread. Both taste great on sandwiches and AMAZING with french fries, and in this card, I'm going to show you how to make both!

Vegan Garlic & Chive Aioli

(Makes 2 cups)

1 jar (about 2 cups) of vegan mayo

1/2 tablespoon fresh lime (or lemon juice)
1 teaspoon dried garlic granules (or 1/2 teaspoon fresh minced garlic)
Pinch of sea salt
About 3 tablespoons dried or fresh chives
1 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1) Mix all ingredients into the mayonnaise until fully combined.
2) Adjust lime, garlic, and spices to taste.

Vegan Smoky Chipotle Dip

(Makes 2 cups)
1 jar (2 cups) vegan mayo

1 teaspoon lime juice
1/8 teaspoon lime zest
1 - 3 chipotle chiles in adobo, to taste
Salt and pepper, to taste

1) Add the first three ingredients to a food processor, and start blending the chilies in, one at a time.
2) Taste after each chili and stop at your desired heat level. (If you want your sauce a little chunkier, just pulse a few times instead of blending.)
3) Add salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and serve!
