Eggless Salad

My long search for the perfect vegan "egg" salad is over! This tofu eggless salad tastes just like the original, only it's fat-free and a whole lot healthier. Black salt is the secret ingredient here. This has quickly became a favorite in our household.

Ingredients

  • 12 Ounces extra-firm tofu
  • 1 Tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 stalk celery, minced
  • 1 1/4 Tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tablespoons dill pickle relish
  • 1/2 Teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 Teaspoon mild curry powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon black salt
  • 2 Tablespoons fat-free vegan mayo
  • Black pepper, to taste

Directions

If using firm tofu, press for at least 20 minutes. Give extra-firm tofu a good squeeze before starting. Crumble the tofu into a large mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until well combined. Let set for a few minutes (this allows the flavor to merge but also enhances the yellow coloring). Stir again. Season with additional spices, to taste.

Egg Shopping Tip

The fresher the better. Eggs in supermarkets don't even have half the flavor of fresh eggs. Try to make some time and head to the nearest farmer's market and treat yourself to some farm fresh eggs. They may be pricier but you get every cent back in flavor and a golden orange yolk.

Egg Cooking Tip

With eggs, cooking at a low temperature is almost always preferred. It allows the eggs to keep better texture. Also if you ever mix your uncooked and hard boiled eggs, do not fret. A trick to distinguish the two is a spin on the counter top. Hard boiled eggs will spin with ease while uncooked eggs won't get any momentum.
