  • ¾ cup vegan mayo of choice I used my cashew vegan mayo recipe
  • 1 teaspoon organic tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce or Tamari
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


  • Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender
  • Blend until smooth
  • Taste to adjust spice level and personal preference for salt


  • Yum Yum sauce will last 5-7 days in the refrigerator.
  • Soak cashews overnight to soften or boil for 10 minutes, drain and cool before blending for a quicker option. 
  • Blend the sauce ingredients and allow the sauce to thicken in the refrigerator before using. 
  • Add to yum yum noodles, dip grilled, or raw vegetables. Or try dipping french fries or polenta fries.
  • Use silken tofu or white beans instead of cashews for a nut-free option. 
  • Or, choose a store-bought vegan mayo of choice instead of making your own.
