Tofu Eggless Salad

love tofu. It’s just so versatile, and the fact that you can do an abundance of things with it, including easily turn it into a mock egg salad, is pretty awesome if you ask me!

This is a very basic recipe which you can add whatever you want to (similar to my Chickpea No-Tuna Salad). Although it’s not necessary, I really like the addition of Kala namak – if you don’t have this in your kitchen, I definitely recommend you get it! Kala namak (also called Himalayan black salt) is a salt that contains sulfur, which gives it a distinct “eggy” smell and flavor.

I love this salad on sandwiches, bagels and wraps, and it’s also great on crackers as a nice snack. When I put it on a sandwich or bagel I’ll usually add lettuce, tomatoes and vegan bacon (anytime I can add bacon to a sandwich I’ll do it!).

Recipe Notes

You can add veggies to this as well; I like the addition of green onions and sometimes celery which adds a nice crunch. Red or green bell peppers would be great in this too.
