OK, this may come as a shock to some of you, but … I used to eat eggs! Yep, vegans aren’t typically born that way, and for years I blissfully ate eggs before being schooled: Eggs come from chickens who are put through pure hell. Hens are forced to live in cages stacked on top of each other, in their own waste and filth, among many other birds, some of whom die from the terrible living conditions. Nobody needs to eat eggs, and tofu is the perfect replacement! That’s why I made the switch, and this sandwich definitely made it easier for me—check it out!

Ingredients
  • 1 block of extra-firm tofu, drained
  • 1 1/2 tsp. celery seed
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 2 tsp. turmeric
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup prepared mustard
  • 1/2 cup Vegenaise
  • 3 1/2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup chopped scallions
  • 1 tomato, sliced
Instructions
  1. Crumble the tofu in a large bowl—it should look like the consistency of egg salad and be a bit chunky.
  2. Add the spices, lemon juice, mustard, Vegenaise, nutritional yeast, celery, and scallions and stir well with a spatula or fork. Make sure the tofu is covered and taste it while you stir! If you want more spices—add them!
  3. Put the tomato, lettuce, and sprouts onto the bread or into the tortilla and top with the tofu-egg salad. Voilà!
