    This mayonnaise is vegan and made from bean water (aquafaba) - the liquid from tinned beans. I used black bean aquafaba which gives the mayonnaise a pinkish mauve colour which I rather like (for a white mayonnaise you can use chick pea water). The white miso adds a savoury tang to the mayonnaise...
