Eggless Egg Salad

Tonight I was thinking about a tofu recipe I used to make in 2001 when I was in the middle of a huge 'tofu' kick and used it almost weekly.  Although I didn't find the tofu nugget recipe I was looking for, I did find a lot of my old recipes and thought perhaps I'd post a few on the recipe blog. Right now with groceries being as expensive as they are, a lot of people will be turning to alternative ideas, and tofu is an excellent way to replace meat in a dish or in certain things, supplement the ground beef by using half and half. More on that one later! Right now let's start with an eggless egg salad recipe. Yum!

Eggless Egg Salad

1 pkg. silken tofu - firm or extra firm
3 T mayonnaise
1/4 t honey
1/4 t. turmeric
dash dry mustard
2 T sweet pickle relish
1 t capers, minced
2 T minced scallions (both green and white parts)
2 T minced celery
1/2 t minced fresh dill weed
dash pepper, dash of salt

Drain tofu and pat dry with paper towels to remove moisture. Grate the tofu with a cheese grater. Mix the rest of the ingredients together and then lightly stir and toss with the tofu. Refrigerate for 30-60 minutes to let the flavors meld.Print Friendly and PDF
