Eggless "egg" salad, vegetable soup

Hi everyone! First I would like to thank everyone for their congrats to DH for his scholarship. He was so thrilled to see all the post from you. I too am very proud of him. I would also like to thank everyone for their help with seitan recipes. I have had some great tips and hope to try some of them in the next couple weeks.

Thanks to
vegan cyclist I found a great site, Compassionate Cooks. You can get some great recipes from Colleen on her site. She also has a blog, which you can link to from her site. You have to pay a small fee for the majority of her recipes, but she does list a few under the DVD site. I tried her Eggless "egg" salad and it is fantastic. I left out some ingredients because I used what I had on hand . I love it. Because this is one of her free recipes I will post it here, but be sure to check out her web page and blog. She has fantastic information on many of the issues we deal with. Below is the recipe. Her essays or papers, or comments are very well written, easy to read, understand, and they are informative.

Here is the "Eggless Egg Salad" with some simple homemade vegetable soup

and fresh fruit salad.

Eggless Egg Salad

1 ½ pounds tofu, firm
½ cup eggless mayonnaise
2 red bell peppers, chopped finely (I left out)
4 scallions (white and green parts), chopped finely
1 small carrot, finely shredded
3 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
(I left out because I forgot to put it in)
2 stalks celery, finely chopped
1 tsp. onion granules
¼ tsp. turmeric
4 tsp. pickle relish
1 ½ Tbsp. prepared mustard
1 ½ tsp. sea salt
1 ½ tsp. garlic powder
Black pepper, to taste

In a large bowl, mash tofu with a fork or potato masher (alternatively, you may wish to finely cube the tofu). Add remaining ingredients and mix well. The resulting savory treat is wonderful as a sandwich spread, served on crackers, or as a side salad.

If you let this sit in the fridge overnight the flavors marry really well. DD loves it too.

Vegetable soup
6 cups of cabbage shredded
2 carrots sliced
2 onions chopped
5 cloves of garlic minced
1 cup fresh or frozen green beans
1 28oz can of tomatoes ( I crushed up the tomatoes and left out the juice)
1tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried oregano
8 cups of "no Chicken Broth"
I sauted the onions, carrots, and garlic. Added the broth, cabbage, tomatoes, green beans, and spices and let simmer for a couple hours. No rules just good eats.
Hope everyone has a good weekend. I will visit all soon!. Thanks for stopping by and saying hi.

I need to try an eggless egg salad sandwich one of these days. I typically pick out all the yolk anyway, so it would make sense to switch.

Hi Sheree' - thanks so much for your kind words about my site and blog. And thanks so much for posting the Eggless Egg Salad recipe. If you can get Wildwood's Garlic Aioli, all the better! :)

And just to let you know, if you use steamed tempeh (either cut into cubes or crumbled), you have a great "Better Than Chicken Salad" (to which I add fresh chopped ginger); use chickpeas (pulsed in a food processor) for "Better Than Tuna Salad" (to which I also add chopped walnuts); and of course steamed potatoes with the dressing makes a great potato salad. :)

Hope that helps. :)

Not sure if you've checked out my podcast, but it's much more comprehensive than my blog; plus, it's helpful to hear the stuff (for some people) rather than just read it. Would be honored if you included a link to my website/podcast on your blog page. :) http://www.compassionatecooks.com/ or http://feeds.feedburner.com/VegetarianFoodForThought.

Many thanks! Take care.

Best,
Colleen

Looks great!

For a really easy eggless egg salad, I use tofu, mayo, paprika, turmeric, celery, and onion. That's it.
