Love this recipe! I used Turmeric, Onion powder, Mustard, and most importantly, Tabasco. The splashes of Tabasco make all the other flavors come out. I ate mine in a pita and on sourdough bread that I first buttered (vegan) and grilled on the george foreman grill. My mom made great egg salad sandwiches growing up. I started to crave them after going vegan and turned to Vegweb for a recipe. Thanks for the great substitute.


Super yummy and easy recipe, thank you!

I didn't follow it to measure but it still turned out excellent! Added the following:

- chopped celery
- tumeric (for yellow color)
- garlic salt
- green onions
- dijon mustard

Wrapped it in a pita with some baby spinach, then wrapped the whole thing in foil so that it was easy to eat while on the go.

I only used 1/2 a block of Tofu and it made enough for 2 big pitas.

Great new recipe to add to my collection, thanks again!


The tofu which we used for this recipe was the new "super firm" kind that you can find in Trader Joe's.  Unfortunately, we don't have any of the vegenaise yet, so we had to use regular mayo, but otherwise we just threw in some relish, mustard, garlic powder and black pepper.  We made our sandwiches like tuna melts, with a little Smart Balance on the bread and a slice of cheese inside, and grilled them on our George Foreman grill.  They are delicious!!

This is a perfect substitute for egg salad, and my wife and I both give it 5 stars.  It will be a staple in our house from now on!


Doncha just love Tofu??  :)>>>  Talk about versatile!

I know that many of you probably wish to keep this simple, but I also add:  Turmeric(just a little for color), a bit of yellow curry powder, a dab of yellow mustard, real minced celery or celerysalt(not a lot), a little lemon juice; if I have red bell pepper I mince it and add it, let's see....of course - minced onion & is not worth living without garlic!  I add minced fresh parsley lastly.  And, just play around with it regarding moistness...if you need a little more Vegannaise, add it.

Another option for crumbling the tofu,...after draining it and then pressing it for 1/2 hour, place in bowl and mash with a potato masher or a pastry cutter.

I found a Flax Seed Bread I really like and use that, or
"Natural Ovens Bakery"  located in Manitowoc, WI has a great whole grain bagel.  They sell their bread, etc., products at many, many stores and co-ops.


I made this sandwich around midnight after realizing I had forgot to eat supper. It took about five minutes and for the amount of time it involved it was pretty tasty. I adjusted it according to what I had on hand. I used medium tofu, crumbled by hand, relish, veganaise, dijon mustard, regular yellow mustard, onion, salt and pepper on whole grain bread. I didn't have any other toppings and the tofu was all the same consistancy. I would probably use a bit of firm tofu next time for the "Egg white" portion and the medium mixed with condiments for the "Yolk/Mayo" portion. Lettuce would also be a treat! :) All in all, edible and enjoyable. I am not Vegan but my boyfriend is and I had two actual egg salad sandwiches today while I was on the run. Both equally enjoyable taste wise.


I used double the veganaise.
I also added alittle mustard and some celary salt because otherwise, it just tasted like squished tofu!

Anyway, I might have had a little more than 1/3 a package - not sure... it was the left-overs from another recipe.

I had fun grating the tofu... mine was slighty frozen: fridge is too cold!  The only thing is, I needed to defrost my HANDS part way through! LOL

Anyway, it turned out yummy!  Quick and easy! I'll need to do it again. :-)
