  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice

  • 1 tbsp lemon zest

  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/2 cup vegan butter, melted

  • 1/4 cup cornstarch

  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together the lemon juice, lemon zest, and sugar until well combined.

  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the cornstarch and salt until combined.

  4. Gradually whisk the cornstarch mixture into the lemon mixture until smooth.

  5. Place the saucepan over medium heat and cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture thickens and starts to boil, about 5-7 minutes.

  7. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let the lemon curd cool for a few minutes before transferring it to a glass jar.
