Curried Eggless Salad [4]

Curried Eggless Salad

ingredients

1 pound medium or firm tofu
1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise, commercial, or oil-free mayo
1/2 cup diced dried figs
1/3 cup minced shallots
3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 – 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 – 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
1/4 teaspoon black salt

Salt and pepper to taste

Slice the tofu 1 inch thick. Place in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, then simmer rapidly for about 15 minutes. Drain in a colander, then on a kitchen towel until dry, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl. When the tofu is dry, crumble and mix into the mixture well with a fork, mashing as necessary. Serve over crostini with a sprig of cilantro.

Black salt is actually pinkish in color, but has a sulfur flavor reminiscent of eggs. Boiling the tofu and draining helps achieve the texture of cooked egg whites.

 

The Mayo recipe everyone is asking for.

To a high speed blender add
1/2 cup raw cashews
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
And blend until smooth
Next, add 1  12 ounce container of medium tofu (not the firm tofu)
Blend again to mix in tofu.
Next, add 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum (A thickening agent and preservative found in health food stores or online.)
blend again.

Use and or refrigerate. As it sits in the fridge it will thicken. It should last a few weeks in the fridge.

 

When we were looking for blenders for the show Miyoko recommended BlendTec blenders because they travel well. They kindly gave us these high speed blenders [5] to use on the show.  And they worked out very well for everyone. There are also other good brands like Breville and Vitamix too.
