Tofu Egg Salad

IMG_7292.jpg

i often will whip up a batch of tofu vegan egg salad sandwiches for get togethers or bbqs. It is so easy to make and often times people have no idea that it is vegan. I also like to make some on the weekends to keep in the fridge for a fast weekday lunch. I love it on crackers or even on salads. The addition of black salt will give it a more convincing egg taste but you don’t have to use it. It is a surfer salt and smells and taste of eggs. You can often find it at specialty spice shops or online.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cube extra firm organic tofu

  • 1-2 teaspoons turmeric (depending on your preference, I like more, some people like less)

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • 3 tablespoon diced pickles (plus a teaspoon of pickle juice)

  • 1/4 cup vegan mayo

  • 1 tablespoons yellow mustard

  • 1/2 teaspoon black salt (optional)

  • salt and pepper to taste

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Wrap drained tofu in a clean kitchen towel, or a few paper towels, and place a few books, heavy plate, or can on top for 5 - 15 minutes to remove excess moisture.

  2. Place tofu in a bowl, and crumble with hands or a fork.

  3. Add in the mayo,spices, pickles, and pickle juice. Mix well.

  4. Store in an airtight container in fridge for 3 - 5 days.
