Vegan Curried Eggless 'Egg' Salad

Blogging Marathon# 31: Week 2/ Day 2
Theme: Meatless Dishes
Dish: Vegetarian Curried 'Egg' Salad
Day 2 of BM# 31 and today I'm remaking my favorite Egg salad into a meatless dish. There are a ton of recipes that use only tofu, but the tricky part of making good eggless egg salad is getting the creaminess right. Egg yolks give that creaminess and using only tofu might make the salad too dry.  Vegan Curried Eggless 'Egg' Salad So when I found this recipe that uses pureed chickpeas that knew this would be a winner. The pureed chickpeas mimic real yolk in both texture and taste. The only thing I would do differently next time is not to pulse tofu in the food processor. I think I like bit more texture to my salad and I would break tofu into bigger chunks rather than pulse to crumbles the next time I make this salad.
I was a little skeptical how the taste would be since we are using raw tofu here, but I have to say I really enjoyed it. It's almost close to the real egg salad (which by the way is one of my favorite ways to enjoy eggs). I like some onion action in my egg salad, so I went ahead and added some in this tofu version as well. But feel free to add caramelized onions (like I did in this egg salad) or celery or anything other flavorings to this basic recipe to jazz it up. Vegan Curried Eggless 'Egg' Salad
Serve it as a filling for sandwich or put a spoonful on crackers or top it on a bed of lettuce, this salad is great eaten any which way. Enjoy!! Vegan Curried Eggless 'Egg' Salad Recipe adapted from the Pig & Quill Ingredients:
Extra firm Tofu - 8 oz. (~ half of a 16oz. package)
Chickpeas - ¾cup, rinsed and drained (half of a 16oz. can)
Mayonnaise - 3tbsp (or more for creamier salad) -- Use Veganaise to make the salad vegan
Curry powder - 1-2tsp (as per taste)
Chili powder - 1tsp
Red onion - 1 small, finely diced
Salt & Pepper - to taste
  • Drain tofu and wrap it in paper towels and/ or kitchen towel and let it drain for at least 20-30 minutes.
  • In the meantime, blend chickpeas, mayonnaise, curry powder, chili powder, salt and pepper into a almost smooth paste.
  • In a medium bowl, crumble tofu with a fork into desired size. You can pulse in the food processor also. 
  • Add the chickpea puree, chopped red onion to the crumbed tofu and mix gently to combine. Taste and adjust the seasoning accordingly. If you have time, chill the salad for a little bit before serving.
I had this eggless tofu salad as a sandwich on a Wheat thin roll topped with baby spinach and tomato. Vegan Curried Eggless 'Egg' Salad Lets check out what my fellow marathoners have cooked today for BM# 31.
