Vegan Egg Salad

I’ve made several trips to Whole Foods over the last few weeks to meet friends for lunch and dinner.  I have fallen in love with their vegan options, especially their Tofu Egg Salad.  I’ve been telling friends, “If only I could replicate this vegan egg salad…”  Unfortunately, it would appear that Whole Foods keeps their recipes under strict lock and key. 

That didn’t stop me; I was determined to make this tofu deliciousness from scratch.  I researched some ingredients, and after several variations, I seem to have created a formula that I absolutely love.  This recipe calls for all vegan ingredients.  If you have meat-eaters in the house, don’t worry; they’ll love this recipe as well.  They may not even realize that this vegan egg salad recipe is egg-less.  It’s actually very simple and should take you no longer than 10–15 minutes to prepare.

How easy was that?  Now just spread it on some of your favorite bread (mine is Trader Joe’s California Style Sprouted Wheat) with lettuce, tomato, or whatever else you like.  I even like to dress it up with kale in place of lettuce to add more healthy nutritiousness.
