"But food is not just a conversational common denominator like the weather is in Britain. The subject, sometimes passionately debated, represents a personal philosophy of life." --Kinta Beevor

Mock Egg Salad

     This is by far the best "egg salad" I've ever had and it doesn't have any eggs, mayo, or salt in it.  I mixed a brick of firm tofu with an equal amount of hummus.  Before using the tofu I put the brick in a colander and placed a weight on top of it for about 20 minutes. This removes excess water and makes for a firmer texture. I cut off about 1/4 of the brick and diced this portion and set it aside. Next, I mashed the other 3/4 of the brick of tofu into the hummus. To this mixture I added 1 tbsp. turmeric, a pinch of smoked paprika, 1 tbsp. no-salt seasoning, and chopped celery. Then I carefully incorporated the diced tofu.  
     Chill in a covered container in the refrigerator.  Pictured here is  a mock egg salad sandwich with freshly picked Boston lettuce on toasted Ezekiel 7 grain sprouted flourless bread.
