This does not taste exactly like egg salad, yet it offers the same satisfaction as egg salad. The taste and texture are good. What it does not have is any cholesterol or saturated fat. And no animals are harmed or slaughtered to provide any of the ingredients. All ingredients are organic.

What You Need

I pound of firm tofu - The Bridge, Nasoya, White Wave or Mori-Nu

Or your favorite brand (don't use silken tofu)

1/2 cup each finely diced red onion and celery

1/2 teaspoon. turmeric

1/2 teaspoon Herbamare seasoning

1/2 teaspoon. dry mustard

3 Tablespoons. Vegenaise Grapeseed oil mayonnaise

2 Tablespoons Cascadian Farm Dill or Sweet pickle relish

1 carrot shredded

How To Fix It

Open and drain the tofu and rinse it off. Steam it for 15 minutes. Then put on a plate and press something heavy on it to get out excess water. You can also wrap it in a paper towel and squeeze out some water too. The put in a bowl, mash with a fork. Add the other ingredients in order, mixing with a fork after each one. Or make it in the food processor. The turmeric gives it the “right” color and adds to the flavor. Chill and enjoy. Makes a good sandwich on whole grain bread.

If serving to guests serve in a bowl using olives, celery leaves, shredded carrots, cherry tomatoes or some other kind of vegetable garnish. You can sprinkle a bit of paprika on top also.

A Few Words About the Ingredients

Use regular not silken style tofu, if you can find tofu made by a local company, buy it. The Bridge is good and available at many health food stores.

I prefer the Veganaise grapeseed to the one they make with canola oil. There is a no fat eggless mayo, but it will not give it the same taste.

Herbamare is a mixture of sea salt and herbs, also can be found in health food stores and is good for seasoning many things.

After making this, taste it and add more seasoning if you wish. Enjoy!
