Black salt will trick your tastebuds in this eggless egg salad! If you’re not a sandwich fan, stuff the salad in tomatoes or celery boats.
12.3 oz box Mori Nu organic firm silken tofu, drained
1/4 cup vegan mayonnaise
1 scallion, finely minced
1 stalk celery, finely minced
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1/2 tablespoon turmeric*
1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon kala namak*
opt: 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1. Using a fork, coarsely mash tofu into a bowl.
2. Add the remaining ingredients and fold until combined.
3. For optimum flavor, cover and refrigerate for @2 hours.
4. Taste and adjust seasonings before serving.
Makes 4 sandwiches
Notes: Turmeric will turn the egg salad into a deeper yellow color over time. Don’t be tempted to add more turmeric because it might make the egg salad taste bitter. Kala Namek is sulfuric-tasting Indian volcanic rock salt, aka black salt. It’s available at Indian markets and online.
