This is a variation worth trying. Freezing tofu creates an interesting change in texture… The finished product is more ‘spongy’, so it can be used in different ways. Make sure you plan ahead of time though – it requires a day or two to be sufficiently frozen.
1 lb. (2 cups) firm organic tofu, frozen
1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp. tamari
1/4 tsp. Himalayan salt (or sea salt)
1–2 celery stalks, diced small
1 scallion or onion, diced
1/2 tsp. kelp
1. Remove tofu from freezer. Allow to thaw. Squeeze the water out of it.
2. Crumble tofu, add remaining ingredients and mix. Chill for a few hours so tofu can absorb the flavors. Season to taste.
3. Serve as a salad or on sandwiches.
