Vegan Lunch #5 – Friday – Tofu Eggless Salad

Tofu Eggless SaladDSC_0774

Ahh – the weekend is almost here!  Another week’s worth of lunches are done!  Tonight I made the quickest of the lunches.  It takes literally 2 minutes to make and it tastes really great!  It has protein and it even has an extra bonus – turmeric.  Turmeric is the spice which the NY Times has recently called the “superstar of spices,” known to have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.  So you can see why I love making this for my family!

  • 1 package firm tofu
  • 3 T vegan mayo
  • 1/4 t paprika
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 3/4 t turmeric

Place the tofu in a bowl and mash with a fork.  Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.  This dish tastes much better after being in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.

Oops!  I forgot to take a photo of the whole lunch this time – which was the sandwich, an apple and a piece of gooey chocolate marshmallow cake (yes there are great vegan marshmallows).  I guess the weekend has already gotten to me!!
