Vegan Egg Mayo

Vegan non-egg mayo sandwich

Yes, this really is my lunch for tomorrow!

Five minutes’ work for lunchtime perfection.

Try this once and you’ll be making this tasty, tofu non-egg mayo filling for your sandwiches regularly.

The quantity below is sufficient to make 3-4 decent sandwiches using typical sliced bread from the supermarket. If you’ve got some firm tofu left over after making this, try my vegan scrambled eggs. It’s super-tasty and you’ve already got most of the ingredients out of the cupboard!

Ingredients:
  • 200g firm tofu (UK: 200g is half a block of this Cauldron firm tofu, it’s easily available in supermarkets)
  • 1 Tablespoon of nutritional yeast
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • ¼ tsp Himalayan black salt (Kala Namak) – this is essential, to make it taste like egg
  • ¼ tsp paprika
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp lemon juice
  • 2 chopped spring onions
  • 2-3 Tablespoons of non-dairy mayo
  • 1 teaspoon of Dijon or wholegrain mustard
  • Handful of chopped, fresh parsley
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Optional: a pinch of cayenne pepper if you want to spice it up

Optional: half a stick of celery, sliced finely, gives extra crunch.
Method:
  1. Press the tofu between your hands to remove most of the excess liquid. Crumble the tofu into a large bowl with your hands.
  2. Add all the ingredients to the tofu and mix well. Taste and season to your preference, be liberal with the pepper as it works well in here.
  3. Keep this in the fridge until you’re ready to use it, then pile a big old heap of it on to your favourite bread, bagels, wraps, sandwich rolls etc. Top it off with some mixed salad leaves and a tiny drizzle of olive oil if you like. Enjoy.
Notes:
  • Keep it covered and your non-egg mayo will be happy in the fridge for 2-3 days.
  • Where to buy the Himalayan salt? Many of the larger UK supermarkets stock it. It’s also on Amazon of course – http://amzn.eu/cyGlgd7
