Easy Vegan Yum Yum Sauce is simple to make in just a few minutes with just a few ingredients. It goes great on sandwiches, as a dip, with stir-fries, on rice, over vegan burgers, slathered on bread sticks or a pizza crust, and just about anything else you can think of that would benefit from a slightly spicy sauce.
Vegan Yum Yum Sauce is Delicious!
This creamy and tasty sauce is like the “real” thing you may have had in a restaurant but it’s totally plant-based. It has every bit as much yummy flavor, though!
Ingredients in Vegan Yum Yum Sauce
Vegan Mayo: There are more than a few vegan mayo brands available now. We tend to use Hellman’s Vegan Mayonaise simply because it’s readily available.
Melted Butter: Just a tablespoon, but it’s a delicious addition.
Sesame Oil: Just a teaspoon for another subtle layer of flavor.
Rice Vinegar: Rice vinegar adds a touch of acidity to the sauce.
Ketchup: Just a bit for a tomato-y touch.
Sweet Paprika: Definitely use the sweet paprika for this sauce.
Garlic Powder: Adds tasty garlic flavor.
Sugar: The sweetness of the sugar balances out all the other flavors.
Salt and Pepper to Taste: It’s a tasty thing. Add as much salt and pepper as you like, tasting as you go along until it’s just right. For you.
Optional Sriracha: Sriracha is always an option, right? If you want a little more spice here, just add a touch of sriracha.
Optional Red Pepper Flakes: Another way to up the spiciness, if desired, is to add a pinch of red pepper flakes.
