Tofu "Egg" Salad

By • September 21, 2010 • 11 Comments



Author Notes: Trying to eat lean (especially after the chicken wing contest). Cooking with tofu is great because it can take on just about any flavor/seasoning. nannydeb

Serves 2

  • 1 block "lite" firm tofu (mine was 12.3 ounces)
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon celery and celery leaves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon onion, minced
  • squeeze lemon juice
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 4 slices whole wheat bread
  1. Heat a 12 inch skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Crumble the tofu into the skillet with your fingers.
  3. Add the nutritional yeast and turmeric and cook for 10-15 minutes or until some of the water has cooked out. There are many ways of extracting the excess water, but this is easy enough. Set aside to cool. Drain of any excess liquid.
  4. Combine the cooled tofu mixture, Dijon mustard, celerey/celery leaves, onion, lemon juice, salt & pepper.
  5. Divide the tofu mixture into two sandwiches and serve.

Looks like the Eggless Egg Salad that Trader Joe's use to carry, that I totally loved. I'm very excited about making this recipe.

How interesting! I make a version of this all the time (with the turmeric and mustard and mayo), but I have never cooked it or added nutritional yeast (which I use quite a bit in nut creams). I bet those are great modifications.

Today I am eating this on salad greens with some Bubbies bread and butters thrown in - yum!

I just ate this for lunch. I didn't even let it cool down much, had it warm on wheat - it is SO GOOD! I may never eat eggy egg salad again! ps I added extra onions because that's how I roll

Been dabbling with going vegan. This sounds really appealing. Have all the ingredients except the tofu, wouldn't you know it!

What does the nutritional yeast do in this recipe? I've never used it before. Thanks.

Nutritional yeast adds a rich flavor. I also put it on popcorn and in soups. My sister uses it to make a sauce for potatoes too that's very tasty.
