After going vegan I so missed those creamy, umami filled sauces that fast food restaurants would slather all over a burger or animal-style fries. I figured it couldn’t be that hard to recreate with my favorite vegan mayo from Follow Your Heart. The umami seasoning mixed with the habanero sauce punch created the perfect addition to any savory dish. I started calling it my “killer” sauce because it simply went with everything and always blew people away. Of course, the spice level is up to you; heavier on the hot sauce means a spicier batch while heavy on the mayo makes it extra thick and creamy. Enjoy it with sweet potato fries, vegan hot dogs, sandwiches, burgers, and more!
