A delicious vegan alternative to egg salad can be made using tofu as a base. Tofu has a neutral flavor and a texture that can mimic the consistency of chopped hard-boiled eggs. Here's a simple recipe for Vegan Tofu Salad:

Vegan Tofu Salad

1 block (14-16 ounces) extra-firm tofu, pressed and drained
2 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (optional, for a cheesy flavor)
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives or green onions
1-2 teaspoons turmeric powder (for color, and to mimic the look of egg salad)
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional add-ins: diced celery, pickles, or relish for crunch


Prepare the Tofu:

Press the tofu to remove excess water. You can use a tofu press or wrap the tofu block in a clean kitchen towel and place a heavy object on top for about 20-30 minutes.

Crumble the Tofu:

Crumble the pressed tofu into a bowl using your hands or a fork until it resembles the texture of chopped hard-boiled eggs.

Make the Dressing:

In a separate bowl, mix together vegan mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, nutritional yeast (if using), chives or green onions, turmeric powder, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

Combine Tofu and Dressing:

Add the dressing to the crumbled tofu and mix until well combined. Adjust the seasoning to taste.

Optional Add-Ins:

If you like, add diced celery, pickles, or relish to the tofu mixture for added crunch and flavor.

Chill and Serve:

Allow the tofu salad to chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors meld.


Serve the vegan tofu salad in sandwiches, wraps, or on a bed of fresh greens. You can also enjoy it with crackers or as a topping for toast.

Tofu trying to imitate eggs was dubious to me. But the onion powder and garlic powder is where I draw the line. Fresh garlic or onions only for me.
