Ingredients

Vegan Egg Salad

  • 8 oz extra firm sprouted tofu
  • 2 tablespoons fresh Italian parsley, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons vegan mayonaise
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon green onion, minced
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Everything else

  • 4 slices of whole grain bread
  • a small handful of mixed greens
  • cherry tomatoes
  • vegan mayonnaise
  • dijon mustard, optional

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl crumble tofu to a consistency similar to scrambled eggs. Add the remaining egg salad ingredients and mix to combine. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • To make sandwiches, toast two pieces of bread. Spread vegan mayonnaise and dijon mustard on the toasted bread. Layer with greens and tomatoes and then top with about 1/2 cup of egg salad. Serve immediately.

Notes

Serving and Storing - This salad should be served chilled. It’s best when it has at least 4 hours to chill before serving. Once you are ready to serve, taste and adjust seasonings. Serve it on bread or a bed of lettuce. Leftover salad can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
Recipe Tips
  1. Use a water-packed firm or extra firm variety. Avoid high-protein super firm tofu. They are so firm that you will not get the desired egg-like texture.
  2. Break apart the tofu by hand. This helps break the tofu into a uniform egg-like consistency.
  3. For a more eggy flavor, add a pinch of black salt to the tofu.
Variations  - For a soy-free option, sub tofu for chickpeas. To do that, drain and rinse them thoroughly. Transfer them in a bowl and mash them until only a few large pieces remain and add your remaining ingredients.
