Not an Egg in Sight Salad Wraps

Eating a vegan diet does not mean you have to miss out on all your old favourite things. With very few exceptions, most traditional foods can be veganised and egg salad is no exception.

This version, looks and tastes like the original. This is delicious in a wrap for lunch. I took these to work three days in a row, and enjoyed them every time.

The next step will be to transform this into a tuna salad, maybe with the addition of dulse for the “fishy” taste. I will work on this for a future post. Or, maybe a devilled mushroom. The creative juices are flowing…..:)

Enjoy,

    • Yes it really does look like egg salad, the key is to leave the tofu slightly lumpy to give the look of egg. It really tastes just like egg salad too. I hope you do try it.
