Tofu Eggless Salad

Tofu Eggless Salad

This tofu eggless salad is going to make your taste buds sing! Yum, yum yum.  Rich and silky, zippy from the pickles and dijon, with a little cheesy vibe thanks to the nutritional yeast. This is a crowd pleasing dish that I often bring to a bbq or picnic and get more requests for recipes than anything else - so here ya go!

 

Serving Suggestion:

At a BBQ or group setting I would serve it with crackers.  If you are having it for lunch I would suggest scooping some onto a sheet of seaweed and rolling it into a wrap. Second favorite option is on a few brown rice/quinoa crackers (basically the hip/healthy/thin version of a rice cracker).  The above 2 are both gluten free and a perfect meal during a prep period for a cleanse.  If you are all cool with gluten, it would be fantastic in a toasted sandwich.

Optionally to top with avocado and sunflower sprouts or add a little romaine.

 

Ingredients:

leaf4

2 blocks of firm tofu

leaf4

1 cup of veganaise

leaf4

1/4 cup onion finely diced

leaf4

1/2 cup shredded carrot

leaf4

2-6 chopped dill pickles, depending on taste.

leaf4

1/4 cup nutritional yeast

leaf4

1.5 tbsp dijon mustard

leaf4

1/2 tsp salt

leaf4

1/2 tsp pepper

 

Drain the tofu. If you have time place the tofu between a few sheets of paper towel and put something heavy on top. Set aside for 30 minutes while you get the rest of the ingredients ready.  This will help take a lot of the moisture out of the tofu.  Crumble the tofu into a large bowl. Add all other ingredients and mix it up.  Serve with a smile :)
