Tofu Egg Sandwiches

Sandwich dreams are made of this 🥪
 
Old me used to love egg sandwiches but they’ve been a distant memory for a while now. Another memory is around 10 years ago, when Hubster and I first started living together, I made a big batch of egg sandwiches ready for him to come home to after a long day of tennis. Oh dear, what a mistake that was. I found out very quickly his dislike of egg sandwiches. But, he ate them with a smile and appreciation.
 
Inspired by @blackgingerskitchen delicious looking tofu egg sandwiches a couple of weeks ago, I was going to make a recipe from a fav cook book. I had a half a block of tofu in the fridge that really needed to be used and it was time for me to go forth and conquer tofu egg. Rather than use a recipe, I decided to tackle the tofu egg as I would an egg sandwich – bit of this, dash of that. My eggy dreams were answered with the most delicious result. Even after being vegan for years, I’m always surprised when I try something that tastes something like old me would eat.
 
No recipe for this one. If you’d like a recipe to follow, there’s heaps available online. I used a half block of firm tofu and mashed with a fork. I added mayo, Dijon mustard, chopped cornichons (with a tiny bit of the pickle juice), nutritional yeast (nooch), tumeric, salt, black pepper and kala namak (black salt). Kala Namak adds an egg flavour. 100% true. It’s not something you can buy from the mainstream supermarkets but readily available at health stores or online. There were no measurements used for this but you could start with roughly a tablespoon of the mayo, mustard, nooch and 1/2 teaspoon of kala namak and tumeric, then adjust and season to taste.
 
I’ve never really eaten many sandwiches, even in those old, heady eggy days. But I will be binging on this new love for a little while. No doubt.

Fed these to my husband for three days. He thought they were egg sandwiches.

Notes

Kala namak or Himalayan Black Salt is perfect for replicating the taste of eggs. It’s not typically available in supermarkets but readily available in health food stores.
