This oil-free tofu egg mayo alternative provides more protein per serving than traditional eggs and makes an excellent topping for a vegan wholemeal egg sandwich.

For clarity, that's 16g of protein per serving compared with just 6g with 'real' eggs!

Upgrade that vegan egg salad, deliver 33% of your daily calcium and a quarter of your daily iron in one hit! 💪

The potent antioxidant combination of turmeric and ground black pepper provides a natural golden egg colour while benefiting our bodies with curcumin.

I have kept this recipe cooking oil-free as I have found this adds unnecessary calories and processed products to an otherwise tasty recipe.

Serving suggestions ����

  • Wholemeal vegan egg and cress sandwich
  • Garnish with sliced beef tomatoes and ground black pepper
  • Stuffed jacket potatoes - don't knock it until you try it!
  • Vegan egg salad

Making this recipe 👩‍🍳

  • If you prefer your egg mayo warm, you can heat it, but make sure you do this to the tofu before adding the coconut mayo.
  • Find a natural, sugar-free coconut yoghurt as these tend to be lower in fat and closer to the whole, unprocessed food.
  • If you're avoiding coconut or processed foods entirely, consider using gram flour and water to make a creamy sauce.
