Steps to follow to make this recipe: 1
Cook the carrot for approximately 20 minutes or until its texture is tender. Another method is to steam them, much better because this way you avoid excess moisture in the vegetable. Too much moisture can harm the outcome of the carrot sauce.
Drain the carrots parboiled for a few minutes. Wait until all the water comes out, this is important to control the consistency of the vegan mayonnaise.
Cut the vegetable sliced or small pieces to facilitate the crushing process. If you use a hand blender that has a plastic part, as in this case, you must wait until the carrot is almost cold or the plastic will melt. On the other hand, if you use a potato chip, blender or other food processor, it is advisable to crush the vegetable while it is between hot-lukewarm. This will facilitate the preparation of the puree for our vegan carrot mayonnaise.
Place the chopped carrots in the blender container. Process until a smooth and even paste. It is important not to leave lumps to get the right consistency for vegan sauce.

Trick: If you place the raw garlic it is recommended to remove the grain that is in the center.
Pour the tahine, garlic, lemon juice, and salt into the blender. Mixture until all the ingredients are integrated.
Add the oil little by little, until achieving a homogeneous consistency. Remember, here I suggest 100 milliliters as a base but you can add more oil until you get the texture of your preference.

If you decide to use the minimum, that is, 100 milliliters, you will have a consistency more similar to a dip but the carrot mayonnaise without eggs will be healthier and equally delicious.

Keys to a perfect carrot vegan:
A fundamental step in traditional vegan and mayonnaise is the moment when you mix the oil with all the ingredients. That right moment is crucial to the proper consistency of the sauce. It is recommended to add the oil little by little, to obtain the expected results.
If you can't find tahine or find it a bit cumbersome, buy sesame seeds and prepare it at home. Tahine is a paste made with sesame seeds (known in some places as sesame) that is added to a large number of sauces and dishes from the Middle East, including some from the Mediterranean and the Balkan area. Hummus, baba ganush, halva, croquettes, faláfel, salads, shawarma, pita bread and Moorish skewers represent some of the ways to apply this tasty paste. To prepare it you only need: olive oil, toasted sesame seeds and a pinch of salt. You process everything and ready … very easy! Remember that for our carrot sauce you only need 2 tablespoons of tahine.
