Vegan Tofu Egg Salad Recipe

Tofu Egg Salad Sandwich On Rye Bread


This recipe is made without eggs.  It’s ready in minutes.  Go for it!


1 Package Extra Firm Tofu

1/2 Cup Vegan Mayonnaise

1/4 Teaspoon Lemon Juice, or Apple Cider Vinegar, or Distilled Vinegar

1/2 Teaspoon Tumeric

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

1/2 Cup Diced Raw Scallions

1/2 Cup Dice Raw Celery

Garlic Granules

Black Pepper


Prepare in advance: Well-drained tofu, diced celery, diced scallions.

Note: Tofu holds alot of water.  If you don’t drain it, you’ll wind up with a very soggy tofu egg salad. It may take one hour or more to drain off all the water.

Mash tofu with a fork, or pastry blender.  Add the lemon juice (or vinegar).  Toss in the tumeric and salt.  Blend well.   Add the scallions, celery. and mayonnaise.  Keep blending until the mixture looks like egg salad.  Add black pepper, and garlic granules to taste.

Note: don’t go overboard on the tumeric.  Too much will turn tofu bright orange.
