Posted August 16, 2012 by Rachelle Owen

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!

Try this, and let me know what you think!

I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall. I can’t cook to save my life. I enjoy Netflix, crafts, & making people laugh, I am generous and enjoy Oldies. Green is my favourite colour. I hate the colour orange. Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites. My Celeb Hotties are: Joseph Gordon-Levitt *swoon*, James Franco, Paul McCartney, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Krasinski & Josh Hutcherson (I have no idea why they all mostly start with “J” lol).

"It’s all okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end." "And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make." -Paul McCartney Looking for: • Penpal • Art Pals • Package Pals • Snail Mail I send small gifts, and even surprise you when I’m thinking of you. **I ask that your age is 18-23.** No country requirements, I enjoy using stamps lol. What I expect from a pen pal is LGBTQA respect and a consistency to correspondence. But I seriously love meeting new people with different interests and writing to them.
