While at the Viva La Vegan market in Santa Monica, I picked up a bottle of So Good Spicy Red Pepper Miso Mayo “Drizzle/Spread/Dip.” It ended up being one of my favorite purchases from the trip.
It’s great on burgers, wraps, and salads. My favorite use so far was as a spread on a wrap with Tofurky slices, tomato, lettuce, and avocado. I was never a fan of mayonnaise in my pre-vegan days, which is why I don’t buy Vegenaise. However, this doesn’t taste like a mayo at all. The spicy red pepper is a great, interesting addition to something that can otherwise get boring lunch after lunch.
I will definitely be buying it again, probably from Whole Foods since their website says that it’s available in their stores nationwide. I go into Whole Foods about once a month because they are way overpriced, so a spread is the perfect product for me to buy there. I understand that they carry items that you can’t really get elsewhere, but I don’t like having to stop at three or four different stores on one shopping trip, so when I go to Whole Foods, I am usually tricked into buying things that I could get elsewhere to avoid additional stops. Their specialty items I am willing to pay more for, but produce and other basics, no way.
The good news is, for those of you who live in a veritable food desert, Miso Mayo can be ordered on their website. It’s $4.95 per bottle plus shipping at a whopping $8.95, but it’s worth having on hand.
