Tofu Eggless Salad Rocks My World

I rarely get food cravings since my meals are typically planned out by the week. I crave whatever I have written in the menu for whatever day I'm on. But sometimes, I NEED a Tofu Eggless Salad Sandwich:

This is one of my favorite warm weather staples — creamy crumbled tofu mixed with Vegenaise, plenty of dill, celery, and onion. Yum yum! Perfect with a few natural potato chips and a small green salad.

Here's my recipe:

1 pound extra firm tofu, drained, pressed, and crumbled
2 stalks celery, minced
1/3 cup green olives, chopped
2 Tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 cup Vegenaise
1/4 cup pickle relish
1/2 tsp. turmeric
1/4 tsp. dill weed
1/4 tsp. sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Spread on sandwiches right away or chill in the fridge.

Makes about 8 sandwiches.

Hey Testers!!! I've posted a recipe for my Dijon Pecan Seitan over at the tester site. Check it out...

looks delicious, i feel like it would also be delicious hybridized iwht a waldorf salad...meaning added walnuts, grapes, or apples, or all three! that tester recipe sounds mouthwatering.

I would have eaten egg sandwiches in my pre-vegan days, but this sandwich sounds totally awesome!
P.S. The package is on the way and I had a little chat with the lady at the post office who told me that air-mail is actually not much faster...so I sticked with my plan to send it by "regular" mail. I hope it won't get lost!

Hmmmmm, sounds so good Bianca. I keep meaning to make some tofu egg salad. I was such a big egg salad fan before I stopped eating eggs, but they were this special once in awhile treat. Tofu egg salad is totally better though, and faster because you don't have to boil anything :)

I hated mayo and eggs before going vegan, but I think that was partly because of their ingredients (raw eggs? EW!). Now that I'm veg, vegan mayo is awesome! And I've loved all tofu egg replacements (tofu scrambles & omlets) so I'm sure I'd really dig this!

Not to mention, that tester recipe sounds divine!

I know exactly what you mean.. sometimes only tofu salad will fit the craving and yours looks and sounds delicious!

Yum, sounds great. I think plenty of dill makes anything good!

I feel the same way about tofu eggless salad! Every so often I just get an insane craving and I have to make it. Also, it requires pickles.

Sheridanna said...

Sounds good! I want to make this! Thanks!

Wow, I've got to make this for my mother. I used to love her egg salad sandwiches growing up!

Not looking at the tofu. Not looking at the tofu. Not looking at the tofu. Oh, how I miss it!!

You know, I could never get near a real egg salad sammie, even as a kid I would gag from the smell. Your sammie looks really yummy, though!

Just made it with a couple of differences. Used Dijon mustard, spring onions,twice the olives and no relish.
I also saw a recipe that suggested that you could grill the tofu before you shredded it and it gives it a bit more texture...
All good.
