Cleaning Out the Fridge
I chose Alicia Silverstone's "Egg Salad Sandwiches" from The Kind Diet. I made a few changes based on items I had on hand. Instead of regular onions I used some scallions that were on their way out. I just pulled off the bad parts and diced the rest. Also, the quantity of tofu I used turned out to be more, since I had 14 oz. packages instead of 12 oz. Since mine were packed in water, I squeezed the tofu over the sink to remove as much water as possible. Because I had more tofu, I did use a little more shoyu and quite a bit more Veganaise. I also doubled the turmeric. I couldn't believe how much Alicia's recipe tastes like really good egg salad! I am having a second helping right now. I am impressed with this recipe and will make it again. I feel good knowing I am using up perfectly good food before it goes to waste.
