View Full Version : Do you have a Fake Eggsalad Recipe?
02-12-2005, 10:33 PM
I've been craving egg salad. I don't eat it that often, and I'm not much of a cook to come up with the base of it. I have made a tofu fake eggsalad before, using onions, celery, cumin, and turmeric, and you can't tell the difference. Does anyone have an idea what I can use as a base for the boiled egg part? I'd be interested in trying out the spices on whatever would make a good base. I am thinking maybe something wet like shredded carrot? Maybe cashews or walnuts?? I dunno...that's why I am asking... :rolleyes:

I think some chopped avocado might work well...

Oh yeah, I didn't think of it, I'm going to try it and post the results.

Here's a recipe I came upon on the web.
No-Tofu Mock Eggsalad
1 15-oz can broken straw mushrooms (I used these only because they're
cheap, around 99 cents a can)
3 Tablespoons FF mayo
*Generous* amount ground black pepper
salt to taste
Rinse and drain the 'shrooms and press out as much excess water as
possible. Drop into a food processor and process the heck out of them.
When they're reduced to itty bitty pieces, remove into a bowl and add
remaining ingredients (a little tumeric can be added to give it an eggy
color). That's it! This is nice on toast and as a topping on baked
potatoes, or even eaten plain as a side salad. As it's a bit on the
bland side without the pepper, you can spice it up with garlic, chili, or
the spice blend of your choice.
