Thanks to its consistency and taste, tartar sauce is a delicious alternative to curd dip and mayonnaise, for example, but also to margarine. Of course, remoulade sauce can also be prepared purely plant-based, it tastes light and has a relatively long shelf life. In this post you will learn how to make vegan tartar sauce yourself.
Remoulade, for example, goes well as a dip with baked potato wedges, oven-cooked vegetables and vegetable patties or can aromatically replace margarine on bread, rolls or sandwiches.
Vegan tartar sauce – the recipe
Ingredients for the vegan tartar sauce:
This is how the vegan tartar sauce is prepared very quickly:
- Put soy milk, mustard, vinegar or lemon juice, cucumber water and spices and optionally the sweetener in a tall mixing bowl and mix with a hand blender.
- Add the oil slowly while mixing. Continue mixing until the mass has emulsified and becomes frothy and firm.
- Finally, fold in chopped cucumbers and herbs with a spoon.
Tip: For a green instead of the traditional yellow color, simply puree a few of the herbs.
The vegan remoulade is ready and you can use it right away! Stored in a screw-top jar in the refrigerator, it lasts for about five days.
Variants of the classic tartar sauce
Depending on the application, a wide variety of herbs can be used in tartar sauce. For example, even small chopped capers taste very good in the fluffy dip and are therefore often found in standard recipes.
The taste can also be varied with the selection of the mustard: for example with (homemade) pear mustard the remoulade gets a fruity-spicy note.
Without cucumber and cucumber water, but prepared with olive oil and herbs such as rosemary, basil and oregano, the tartar sauce tastes Mediterranean, which goes well with bread with freshly sliced tomatoes, for example.
A tartar sauce with wild herbs is also delicious: combine, for example, the mild chickweed with the spicy taste of Gundermann or the hotness of the nasturtium. The rather sweet flowers of the violet from the snack balcony complete the taste.
