Vegan Chick Fil A Sauce on a waffle fry

Vegan Chick-fil-A Sauce

Once upon a time, I was Chick-fil-A’s biggest fan. In high school, I ventured to the fast food chain every morning after cross country practice and ordered my breakfast with extra packages of Chick-fil-A sauce. My second job was at a Chick-fil-A, and while there on everything: the sandwiches, the fries, even on the salads I enjoyed that darn sauce.

Unfortunately, the Chick-fil-A sauce is made with mayo, mustard, bbq sauce, spices, oils, and other animal products that are a no go for me.  I haven’t touched that delicious, sweet, and tangy sauce in almost two years. Although I don’t frequent Chick-fil-A these days, I still indulge in the waffles fries without the (delicious and yummy) perfect matching sauce. I knew it was time to finally veganize the sauce I’ve missed so much.

The good news is, I discovered a vegan alternative sauce that’s REALLY good!

I kept this recipe oil-free by using a vegan mayonnaise recipe by Nora cooks where she uses silken tofu, but any vegan mayo will work. I do want to preface this by saying it is not the EXACT sauce. However, it is darn close to a perfect match. This sauce works well with almost anything. Fries? YES. Hash browns? YES. Gardein chick’n strips. HECK YES. Veggie burgers? YOU KNOW IT. It’s basically an all-purpose sauce, and if you’re anything like me, you’ll never get tired of it.
