Eggless Egg Salad

If you're hankering for an eggy fix I've got you covered - this creamy, gooey, crunchy dish is a great light meal, accompaniment or breakfast that tastes so egg-like others won't believe it's vegan. How you serve it is up to you - spread it over hot buttered toast, or add it to a wrap or sandwich. For a lighter touch - serve in lettuce cups. Whatever you do, don't forget to add the kala namak! (found at your local spice shop)

  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Small Mixing Bowl


  • 500 gram Firm Tofu
  • 1/2 cup Celery chopped
  • 1/4 cup Red Onion diced
  • 2 Gherkins sliced
  • 1 Tbsp Fresh Parsley chopped

Dressing Ingredients

  • 1 Ripe Avocado cut into cubes
  • 1 tsp Yellow Mustard
  • 1 tsp Turmeric
  • 1/2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Water

  • Place the tofu in a large bowl and mash with a fork or crumble with your hands until there are no large lumps.
  • Add celery, red onion, gherkin and parsley.
  • In a separate smaller bowl, make the dressing by adding all the dressing ingredients and stir until smooth. You might have to mash to get the avocado creamy.
  • Pour the dressing over the tofu mixture and stir until everything is combined - you don't want to see any remaining white pieces of tofu.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste if needed.
