Tofu Egg Salad

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Sharon123

A good eggless tofu salad that is great in sandwiches or on it's own in a lettuce cup. Trader Joe's sells a good vegan mayonnaise, or you could use a soy yogurt but it will be more tangy. The nutritional yeast gives it a cheesy flavor. Another great recipe from Just the Food.

Really good! I actually had to find somewhere around here that carried nutritional yeast, which was more difficult than the recipe. Let this sit overnight to blend and had on sprouted grain bread. I like the umami type flavor the yeast gives this. The tofu salad I had before had a bit of a sweet taste so I might add a touch of sweetener to see if I can replicate that, but this is really good just following the recipe.
