My Eggless “Egg” Salad is made with tofu instead of eggs for a tasty plant-based version of the traditional egg salad. Great in sandwiches, wraps, a scoop plopped on top of salad, etc.
I simply replaced eggs with tofu and continued on with my regular way of making egg salad sandwiches. The secret to getting the eggy flavor is Kala Namak black salt. It delivers an egg flavor which works well when trying to get that egg taste. Other than that I used vegan mayo and the rest of the goodies I like in egg salad. For me, pickle relish is a must!Print
