Tofu Egg Salad Sandwich Recipe

See the Herb Butter Recipe used in this sandwich here: Herb Butter Recipe.


2 pounds tofu
1 tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. dry mustard
1 tbsp. Vege-Sal or other vegetable salt
1 1/2 tsp. celery seed
1 1/2 tsp. oregano
1 1/2 tsp. parsley
1 tsp. dill leaves
2 tsp. primary yeast flakes
2 tsp. safflower oil mayonnaise
1/2 cup minced onion
3 stalks celery, chopped
Sliced bread
Herb Butter
Alfalfa sprouts


Crumble the tofu into a large bowl (Paul and Deborah use their hands for this. They say a fork just doesn't do the job right), and add the remaining ingredients, stirring well as each one goes into the bowl. Add a generous layer of "eggless egg salad" and a big handful of alfalfa sprouts to each sandwich, slice your finished product in two so it'll be more manageable, and chow down. You'll find this does taste like egg salad — only better! The sandwiches will be especially good if you toast the slices of bread before spreading them with some of the Herb Butter.
