Vegenaise is a vegan egg-free “mayonnaise”.  Vegenaise comes in four varieties: original, grapeseed oil, organic and expeller-pressed. They are all very similar in taste, though I usually use the original.  Incidentally, using an egg-free mayonnaise is an easy way to reduce your cholesterol, since traditional mayonnaise is made from eggs.
