I Love Orgran! – Egg Free Potato Salad Attempt


I’m heading off camping this weekend and it is a very back to basics deal where we can’t take a car so have to carry everything ourselves. For me that is a challenge for food as I can’t take too much in the way of cooking equipment and food.

I’ve got a butane burner and a little fry pan so dinner is going to be steak but I don’t want to mess around peeling and boiling potatoes so I’ve been trying to find a potato salad recipe that I can actually eat. I’m not quite up to raw eggs (and I would be dubious about how it would keep in an esky) so that rules out most mayonnaise recipes and of course premade in a jar isn’t an option. Then I thought ‘No Egg’! And sure enough Orgran and Google prevailed!

Of course I still have to moderate that recipe as it is high Sals but theoretically it can be done. Let the experiment begin!

Now the tweaks for us failsafers:-

Replace the oil with Rice Bran Oil, lemon juice with citric acid (I’m going to try 1 tsp as I’m a bit sensitive) and omit the mustard powder.

Not sure if you need help turning that into potato salad but if you do. Boil up some potatoes so they are still a little firm. Add the mayo and some parsley and/or chives and voila! Potato Salad!


Edit – Post Mayo Review

Ok it was crap! It will do in a pinch but was pretty tasteless even for me. The consistency went like mousse and it was very powdery. The big omission in this recipe is salt – it really needs it so add to your taste. Also I ended up adding 2 tsp citric acid but it didn’t help. It was edible but could have been better.
