Tofu Egg Salad Sandwich | Vegan Richa

The other day, I wanted a really simple breakfast, so I crumbled up the tofu and added the general spices I would add to a scramble and served it in a sandwich with my spicy mustard dip.

Hubbs tried some and exclaimed.. ooh this is so much like scrambled eggs. I was like, why haven’t we done this before. Hubbs ate the whole bowl by himself and I had to make more..

This is a great base recipe, add crunchy veggies, cheese or other flavors to taste.

For the Tofu Salad

  • 14 oz firm Tofu
  • 1.5 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 to 3/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp Indian Black Salt Kala Namak
  • 1/4 tsp or more chipotle pepper powder , or other hot chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp paprika, optional
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp scallions or cilantro
  • 1/4 tsp or more freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp or more salt
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons vegan mayo , or vegan yogurt or cashew cream
  • Add 1/4 tsp dijon mustard , add 2 tbsp chopped celery for variation

For the Sandwich


  • Press the Tofu between your hands to remove some not all excess liquid. Crumble the Tofu into a large bowl with your hands
  • Add all the ingredients through cilantro and mix well. Taste and adjust to preference. Depending on your tofu(some brands need more flavors), you might need more of the spices, salt or lemon . Chill until ready to serve. Before serving, dress with a very liberal sprinkle of freshly ground pepper! and salt to taste. Tastes best after chilling for some time.

Make the Sandwich

  • (Toast the slices if you like them toasted). Layer spicy mustard dip or dijon mustard or vegan mayo on the slice. Add greens, a good layer of tofu scramble salad. and serve.


for variation: Add celery, dill pickle and vegan mayo.
Soyfree: Use cooked chickpeas, mash them up, use a good amount of vegan mayo to make them moist. 
Use chickpea flour tofu or other Soyfree tofu instead.
