a yummy mock egg salad

In attempt to watch the amount of eggs we’re eating, I started to search for a recipe that could replace the egg salad sandwich that I love so much. It’s not that I don’t like eggs or don’t want to eat them anymore, it’s the opposite in fact. I love them TOO much and so I’ve been looking to cut back where I can. I found this recipe for a mock egg salad sandwich with cashew mayo and loved it. But as you’ll learn, I often change or omit part of the recipes I use because I don’t have the right ingredients. For this one I used cashew mayo only once. It was delicious but my blender wasn’t great at making small amounts and I wasn’t eating large enough amounts to justify making it. So I use my regular mayo. Here is what I use for the egg salad:

  • 1 half block Firm Tofu
  • Mayo to taste
  • Honey Dijon Mustard to taste (lots!)
  • Turmeric (to taste or until I like the look of it)
  • Sea Salt (just a bit to taste)
  • Onion Powder (just a bit. maybe 1/4 a teaspoon?)
  • Paprika (to taste or until I like the look of it)

And it turned out delicious.

First you drain the tofu and mash it with a fork, and then add your other ingredients until you like the look and taste of it! I serve it usually with tomato, lettuce and avocado (because I put avocado on everything) on fresh baked bread. These pictures are missing avocado it seems, I must have been out that day! Hope you like it!   Р Jenna
