Eggless Egg Salad
For an eggcelent substitute of Mom’s Egg Salad recipe, try tofu. Use your favorite recipe and swap the eggs for tofu. Prep tofu by following these steps:
- Remove excess liquid from tofu and press between two sheet pans for about an hour.
- Crumble tofu in medium sized bowl, mix together with ingredients and let sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour (yes it really is THAT simple!).
Replace chicken with tofu in a BBQ-inspired pizza. Top a premade pizza crust, like Mama Cozzi’s Italian Pizza Crusts, with fixings to add a tangy twist. Dice tofu and soak in your favorite BBQ sauce, then evenly spread on pizza and bake for about ten minutes at 400 degrees.
Cut tofu into planks, add to hot oil in a large pan, cook for 5 to 7 minutes per side, or until browned. Add tofu to your noodles, vegetables and stir-fry sauce for a flavorful, vegan stir-fry.
Dice tofu, celery, tomato, mango, onion and cilantro into small pieces and let marinate with a little lime juice, salt and pepper. The longer you let sit, the more flavor is infused. Serve with SimplyNature Blue Corn Tortilla Chips for a favorite alternative to a classic shrimp snack.
