Tofu "Egg" Salad - Tasty Summer Salad

tofu vegan egg salad

If you are looking for ways to use tofu, you might enjoy this tofu salad spread that looks similar to egg salad. It can be eaten on a plate with other vegetables, with crackers, or on a sandwich. It's quite tasty and versatile. My favorite way to eat it with a big slab of tomato on some gluten free bread.

After assembling it, I like to refrigerate it and it eat the next day. Why? The flavors seem to mingle better and it is tastier.

I chop up some vegetables such as celery, red onion or scallions, and parsley.

Turmeric gives the salad its yellow color. It is totally white before adding the turmeric. 

Tofu salad, vegan Caesar dressing

1 block of firm tofu, pressed
1/2 cup of chopped celery
1/4 cup of chopped red onion
1/4 cup of chopped parsley
1/4 cup of chopped scallions
1 tablespoon of capers
Cracked black pepper
1/4 teaspoon of turmeric 
1/2 cup of my homemade oil-free Caesar dressing (follow link for recipe)
or use vegan mayo 

Press tofu to remove water and then chop tofu to small pieces. Wearing gloves, use your hands to smush it to egg salad consistency. Add Caesar dressing and turmeric. Mix well and refrigerate overnight or for 6 hours.

  1. I haven’t been able to enjoy tofu despite several tries. This recipe might help though. Thank you!

  2. It looks so delicious and healthy!...I love it!!.....Abrazotes, Marcela

  3. I love it! But what do you think of curried faux egg salad? That's my favorite egg salad treatment.

  4. I add chopped carrot and eat tofu salad many times throughout the year. I like it on a bed of greens with gluten free crackers on the side. Have a beautiful day Judee and keep up the good work.

  5. What a creative way to use tofu! Egg salad made healthy!

  6. I really like the idea of this! Great way to use tofu. Thanks!

  7. I love scrambled tofu . Its so healthy. I often make with ginger and spices.

  8. Boy this does look like a tasty salad. I'm going to have to give this a try.

  9. I think our Whole Foods used to sell tofu egg salad -- probably still does. It may have been more like real egg salad, for example, using vegan mayonnaise and maybe pickles -- which would add a lot of flavor to the rather bland tofu. I haven't eaten it in a long time as I use more actual hens' eggs now in place of meat.

  10. Sounds good but I don't think I could get John to try it.

  11. It is a great looking salad, but tofu and I are not friends.

  12. This tofu salad sounds tasty! I like your suggestion about eating it with "a big slab of tomato." And I know what you mean about some recipes tasting better the next day. I always feel that way about pies. Beautiful pics as always! :)
