Eggless egg salad sandwich

I had a craving for something cool, light, and refreshing but something with substance! Sometimes I forget just how versatile tofu can be. You can fry it, bake it, even whip it up to make creamy desserts! Or, in this case, just crumble it!

What you need:
  • 1 package firm tofu
  • Vegan mayo (I used Canola spread - worked just fine!)
  • Veggies:
    • 2-5 green onions
    • 2 stalks celery
    • Green pepper x 1
    • Red pepper (this combines super well with the turmeric) x 1
  • Spices:
    • Turmeric 1 tsp
    • Garlic powder (or you can crush up some fresh cloves) 1 tsp
    • Pepper to taste
    • Salt to taste
  • Optional:
    • Fresh garlic cloves
    • Braggs liquid aminos (I used this to moisten up my stuff and add a little salty flavor)
    • Bread to make a sandwich (I toasted mine) or just use crackers
To make:
In a large bowl, crumble tofu with your hands. Drop in the spices and mayo and stir. Chop and dice your veggies and throw 'em in. Stir. Taste test. Add more mayo? Add more pepper? Spice it up with some cayenne? Plop it on some warm toast?

Super fast! No cooking involved. I had everything in my fridge minus the celery, which I wish I had for more crunch! It was full of flavor and was quite filling!



  1. Yum! :) So good served cold with sprouts and tomato on toasted bread...

  2. Hot damn this was good. I don't seem to have any turmeric, so I used a little cumin, some garlic-jalapeno mustard, and paprika instead. Also, I hate celery, but with the peppers it was plenty crunchy without any.

    Two entire peppers was looking like perhaps a little much for one package of tofu, so I used half a pepper each and I like how it turned out.
