No-Egg Salad

Makes enough for 3 sandwiches

1 14 oz container of extra-firm or firm tofu

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon turmeric

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

1/8 teaspoon curry powder

2 tablespoons Healthier Mayonnaise

1/4 cup chopped green olives (rinse olives first if trying to reduce sodium)

1/4 cup diced celery

1/4 cup chopped onion

1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (see note)

Crumble tofu into a large bowl. Sprinkle seasoning (garlic powder through curry powder) over tofu and add mayonnaise. Stir to combine thoroughly. Add all other ingredients and stir to combine. Pile onto whole grain sandwich bread or stuff into pita bread and top with lettuce and tomato if desired.


Nutritional yeast is not the same as bread yeast or brewers yeast. It adds a bit of umami flavoring to the tofu and is available at most grocery stores either in the bulk section or in the supplement section. You can also get it online here.
