Tofu “Egg” Salad

This is a tofu classic that has often been mistaken for the real thing in my house. The mustard and turmeric give it the right color, and the other ingredients provide the traditional flavor. Adapt this recipe to include your own favorite seasonings.

Combine in a medium bowl:

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    1 tablespoon honey
    2 teaspoons unfiltered, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon turmeric (optional)
    1/2 teaspoon onion powder, or 1 – 2 tablespoons minced red or green onion
    1/2 teaspoon celery seed
    1/8 teaspoon pepper
    1/4 cup minced celery
    1/4 cup minced green pepper
    2 tablespoons minced pickles

Crumble 8 ounces firm or extra firm tofu into the bowl and mash together until the mixture is the consistency that you like your egg salad.

You can serve it immediately, but letting it chill for a few hours allows the flavors to meld better.

 

Suggestions for using Tofu “Egg” Salad:

  • Sandwich: spread mayo on whole grain bread, top with lettuce, tomato, sprouts, nondairy cheese and Mock Egg Salad
  • spread onto a toasted whole grain bagel, English muffin
  • spread onto a whole grain cracker

I've always abhorred the idea that the only way to lose weight is to starve yourself, eat foods that are foreign to you, or gulp down special weight loss potions. I've proved that it is not only possible, but it's easy and fun to lose weight The UnDiet way. The UnDiet is extremely flexible, allowing you to make deviations based on your personal taste, the choices confronting you at any given time, your mood, your cooking skills and the time you have available. A gourmet cook can be happy with The UnDiet as well as those who don't know or care what saute means. You can eat out at restaurants and parties and still not fall off The UnDiet. You can eat olive oil, butter, cream, meat, mayonnaise and still not fall off The UnDiet. You can eat until you're full and still lose weight, once you've mastered the basic principles of The UnDiet.
