Eggless Egg Salad (Vegan Recipe)

Eggless Egg Salad (Vegan Recipe)


Yep, you read that right — this here is a recipe for egg salad, sans the egg and mayo! Instead, we have tofu and vegenaise. Though it might not be quite the same as the original, it’s a great substitute for vegans reminiscing about Grandma’s egg salad. And it’s really, really easy!

Vegan “Egg” Salad


  • 1 Block drained firm tofu
  • 1/3 c. vegenaise
  • 1/3 cup sweet relish
  • 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup celery, diced
  • 1/2 cup shallots or red onion, diced
  • 1/2 tsp garlic power
  • 1 tbs mustard
  • Paprika, salt & pepper to taste


1. Using a fork, mash tofu in a medium bowl.
2. Stir in remaining ingredients until combined well. Garnish with paprika. Voila!
