    180 ml neutral tasting oil, 15 kaffir lime leaves
  • Transfer the oil and leaves to a measuring cup or beaker and puree the leaves as finely as possible with the hand blender. Then leave for another 5 minutes to infuse.
  • Strain the oil through a fine strainer (tea strainer or bouillon strainer). Press the oil well out of the leaves.

For the mayonnaise

  • Put soy milk, lemon juice, wasabi and salt in a mixing cup and blend with your hand blender. Then slowly add the oil while the hand blender is operating. Move the blender up and down as soon as it starts to thicken so that the oil mixes well. Taste briefly and add extra salt, lemon juice or wasabi if necessary.
    100 g soy milk, 1 el lemon juice, 2 g salt, 1 tl wasabi paste


If you want to make things easier for yourself, you can use a ready-made vegan mayonnaise and mix in some wasabi and homemade kaffir lime oil. You can also use the oil for all sorts of other uses: in dressings and vinaigrette, to finish a sauce, to roast vegetables with, on bread you want to toast, etc.
