Vegan Tartare Sauce in 10 minutes

If you like pickles and mayo you’ll love this dip. It combines a creamy texture with the sharp tang of vinegar and pickles. It’s really quick to make.

Tartare sauce, vegan

175g (6 oz) silken tofu
235g (8 oz) vegan mayonnaise – we use Plamil
1.5 tsp grain mustard
100g (3½ oz) capers, chopped fine
90g (3 oz) gherkins, chopped fine

1. Blend the first three ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth.
2. Stir in capers and gherkins.
2. Store in a sealed container in the fridge.


  • Serve with anything breaded (tofu, onions, mushrooms etc.) or battered (vegan ‘fish’, potato scallops etc.).
  • Use all capers, all gherkins or a mixture of both, depending on what you prefer.
  • If you like tartare sauce and you like potato salad, try this recipe for Russian salad, it has elements of both dishes and is delicious.

  1. I love capers! Some years ago I did some recipe testing and photography for Viva! for their ‘fish-free for life’ guide (
    This sauce would go brilliantly with the Faux Fish Fillets or Tofu ‘Fish’ Fingers.
