Deviled “ Egg” Salad ( Vegan)

Non vegans and sometimes even some vegans ask why on earth do vegans insist on recreating vegan versions of animal based foods. To that I say it’s because the vegan version tastes even better and it’s cruelty free. Win win.

I’ve made “ egg” salad before, but this was my best recipe I think. If you recreate please let me know what you think.

Recipe:

Can of chickpeas

1/4 of a block of tofu mashed into chunks

Black salt to taste ( for the “ egg” flavor )

2 to 3 tbsp vegan Mayo

1 tsp Dijon mustard

Few dashes black pepper

1 tsp garlic powder + extra for tofu

Few dashes of turmeric

Pinch of sea salt

Few dashes black pepper

Smoked paprika for topping ( optional )

Directions:

Mash up tofu and season with a few dashes of garlic powder and a few pinches of black salt. You don’t have to cook it but I baked it for 7 minutes to firm up a bit. Thought that would give the “ egg” salad better texture.

In a blender or food processor add in the chickpeas, Mayo, and seasonings, and mustard and blend to combine.

Then mix the tofu and the chickpea mixture.

All done ready to eat, but taste it and you can adjust seasonings to taste.

This goes great on pasta as well I used collard greens to act like I’m a full fledged healthy vegan for a day.

Enjoy!
