  • 11 oz (325 g)
    firm tofu, pressed, drained
  • ½ cup (120 mL)
  • 2 Tbsp (4 g)
    fresh chives, chopped
  • 1½ tsp (7 mL)
    dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp
    curry powder
  • ¼ tsp
    ground turmeric
  • ¼ tsp
  • ¼ tsp
    ground black pepper
  • 3
    romaine lettuce leaves
  • ½
    cucumber, sliced
  • 6
    slices whole wheat bread


  1. Finely chop the pressed tofu into very small pieces. Transfer to a large bowl and mix together with the mayonnaise, nutritional yeast, chives, mustard, curry powder, turmeric, salt, and pepper.
  2. Assemble the sandwiches by adding a layer of lettuce, sliced cucumber, and a generous layer of "egg" salad on top of the bread.
  3. Cut in half if desired, and enjoy!


  • Kala namak, is a salt often used in South Asian cuisine. The sulphur compounds give the salt an egg-like smell and flavour.


  • The assembled sandwiches are best when enjoyed on the same day.
  • The "egg" salad can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

This is such an easy and quick recipe to make, a go to for lunch during the week!

Firebolt - May 13, 2024, 8:45 p.m.

I've been making this quite often in the past years, one of our favourite breakfasts ever (and not only is it super easy and quick to make but we've always been able to find all ingredients, no matter which continent we've lived on, which is always a plus).

PUL Team - May 15, 2024, 3:09 a.m.

Woohoo! What a lovely compliment, Firebolt, we're glad you've been enjoying the sandwich for so long as well 🙌

Timo Bongartz - May 12, 2024, 5:53 p.m.


Giselle - April 24, 2024, 11:22 a.m.

Really nice!
I personally crumble the tofu in a hot pan for 5 minutes so the scramble is warm when eating right after making it.
And I put 2 tbsp mayo in and 1 tbsp plant based greek yoghurt instead of 120 ml mayo, just so it is somewhat healthier and less dense.

PUL Team - April 24, 2024, 5:30 p.m.

Love this idea 🙌 thanks for sharing your experience with the sandwich, Giselle!

Neus - April 13, 2024, 8:22 p.m.

New summer addiction! Made it today for the non vegan family. They loved it!

Jana - April 11, 2024, 7:49 p.m.

Delicious, fast and easy dinner option. Love it!

Natassa - April 9, 2024, 8:32 p.m.

I made this recipe now , the only thing I changed was the mayonnaise, I replace it with thick Soja yogurt for a healthier choice and it was amazing ! What a taste ! And the kala namak , mind blowing !

PUL Team - April 10, 2024, 1:30 a.m.

Thanks for the tip, Natassa! So happy that the sandwich is being enjoyed 😊

- April 7, 2024, 9:38 p.m.

This tastes so good! I’m still in awe of just how delicious it is! I can’t wait to put this in a sandwich! ♡♡

Petry - March 26, 2024, 2:44 p.m.

So quick. So easy. So stinking good.

Jen Neurohr - March 12, 2024, 11:23 p.m.

I am honestly in awe of how delicious this is. It's so simple and an absolute 100% replicate of egg salad!! Perfect easy weeknight meal

PUL Team - March 13, 2024, 9:15 p.m.

Awe it means so much that the sandwich was enjoyed, Jen! Thanks :)

Purva Pujari - March 12, 2024, 6:59 p.m.

This is OMG good! I am definitely making this again. Thanks for this one!❤️

Breeanna - March 11, 2024, 3:25 a.m.

I love this recipe! I have done it twice now and it is just so tasty! I did love egg salad sandwiches and this definitely fills that want.

PUL Team - March 11, 2024, 8:05 p.m.

So thrilled to hear this, Breeanna! Thanks for taking the time to leave the review 🤗

Danielle B - March 6, 2024, 10:50 p.m.

This has become such a reliable go-to meal for us when we want something quick and tasty. Especially good in a wrap with tons of that crunchy cucumber 👌🏻

Maxine - Feb. 27, 2024, 12:21 a.m.

Best "egg" salad ever!!

Natasha - Feb. 25, 2024, 10 p.m.

This is amazing! I will admit curry powder threw meals a day off a bit (not sure why) and I am so shocked at how much this tastes exactly like an egg salad (from what I remember 😉) brought back memories! I too always had it on soft bread with lettuce when I was growing up. We also made little finger sandwiches too. Just WOW!!!

PUL Team - Feb. 26, 2024, 4:42 a.m.

We're so thrilled to hear you enjoyed it, Natasha! The taste of curry powder can sometimes surprise us, but we're glad it brought back fond memories of egg salad for you. Finger sandwiches sound like a delightful way to enjoy it too ✨

Cece - Feb. 22, 2024, 3:59 a.m.

I love using kala namak for that “eggy” taste. I also like using chickpeas in place of the tofu when I’m out of tofu. Easy and delish!

PUL Team - Feb. 23, 2024, 12:51 a.m.

Ooo thanks for the tip, Cece! We're glad you're enjoying the recipe :)

Amélie Labrie - Feb. 19, 2024, 4:42 a.m.

Amazing and so simple to make

Er - Feb. 17, 2024, 2:34 a.m.

Tried this recipe just today to compare it with another one that had much more 5star ratings. So glad I did coz this is hands down the winner. It looked AND more importantly, tasted like the real thing. It had a more complex flavor. I only used half of the suggested curry powder but will try more next time.

PUL Team - Feb. 18, 2024, 4:28 a.m.

Aw we're so happy that the Vegan "Egg" Salad Sandwich was enjoyed, Er, thanks a bunch! 🤩

Ladan - Feb. 13, 2024, 3:41 p.m.

I love this one, make it every week.

PUL Team - Feb. 14, 2024, 4:58 a.m.

We're so thrilled you're enjoying the "Egg" Salad Sandwich, Ladan!

Cristina - Jan. 30, 2024, 10:01 p.m.

I had zero expectations for this one because of the raw Tofu and curry powder but it’s all really well balanced and delicious. I loved it, thanks Sadia!

PUL Team - Jan. 31, 2024, 7:33 a.m.

Thank YOU, Cristina! We're happy that the "egg" salad sandwich exceeded your expectations 🤗

Susana - Jan. 29, 2024, 5:12 p.m.

One of my favorite quick recipes from PUL! I could have it for lunch everyday 🥪🥪

Nancy - Jan. 28, 2024, 9:22 p.m.

Egg salad sandwiches are my favourite! This was easy, quick and allowed me to use up the tofu I had in the fridge. It’s not my favourite, but more than likely it’s due to texture. I have a hard time with tofu. If you are okay with the texture, this will more than likely be a winner!

Nika - Jan. 28, 2024, 4:46 a.m.

I LOVE this recipe! It’s a regular on my meal rotation. I tried it with some fresh dill instead of chives which gave it a great twist!

:) - Jan. 24, 2024, 5:54 a.m.

So simple, but absolutely nails the egg salad sandwich flavor. Tastes just how I remember, without the ick factor, and only takes 3 minutes to whip up. Love!
The only thing I’d recommend is a little less curry powder. While it lends an awesome flavor, 1/2tsp was too much in my opinion.

PUL Team - Jan. 25, 2024, 6:28 a.m.

Hey friend, thanks for sharing your experience with the "egg" salad sandwich ☺️

Meenal - Jan. 23, 2024, 2 a.m.


Firebolt - Jan. 23, 2024, 12:47 a.m.

One of my favourite recipes from the whole app, and hands down the best 'egg' salad recipe out there. The only thing I miss from my pre-vegan life is eggs and this one helps tremenduously. I've made it countless times, and all of my family and friends who tried it, loved it. Thank you for creating it!

PUL Team - Jan. 23, 2024, 1:45 a.m.

Such a big compliment, Firebolt, thank you! We're thrilled that the egg salad sandwich is being enjoyed ☺️

Skaiste - Jan. 17, 2024, 8:45 a.m.

I made this sandwich this morning and while eating was doing little dance,it was that good! 🤩 Guess what I'm making tomorrow for breakfast 😋 😀

PUL Team - Jan. 17, 2024, 6:14 p.m.

Gosh love this! What a nice start to the day, Skaiste, thanks🕺✨

Valerie - Jan. 11, 2024, 9:03 p.m.

Really liked this sandwich! Works great with the tofu and easy to make 😊

Richelle Smith - Jan. 10, 2024, 2:04 a.m.

Great recipe! So easy, delicious, and good change up for tofu.

Caterina - Jan. 8, 2024, 1:02 p.m.

Love this recipe and all your work, very inspirational! Instead of the vegan mayo I made a tahini, lemon, chives, mustard and cumin dressings. Probably the original would be better, but it was still really nice.

PUL Team - Jan. 9, 2024, 7:40 a.m.

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with the sandwich, Caterina 😊

Alexis Bushnell - Dec. 23, 2023, 10:18 p.m.

I've been eating this on sandwiches for about 6 months almost none stop. Amazing.
I ditch the spice because I can't eat that but without it's amazing. My favourite sandwich filling.

PUL Team - Dec. 25, 2023, 11:45 a.m.

Aw so happy to hear it, thanks so much Alexis!

Natália Alves - Dec. 17, 2023, 8:19 p.m.

Delicious for a protein packed lunch! Super easy recipe for meal prep. Here at home we're all very happy with it 😁😁

Mary F. - Dec. 15, 2023, 8:55 p.m.

This was a great lunch! I put mine on some sourdough and spread some garlic confit on the bread - delicious!

Laurie - Dec. 11, 2023, 9:16 p.m.

I can’t tell you how many times I have made this, so good!

PUL Team - Dec. 12, 2023, 7:59 a.m.

Yayy we're so happy that you're enjoying the "Egg" Salad Sandwich, Laurie 🤗

Anna Berggren - Dec. 8, 2023, 12:14 p.m.

Perfect lunch! Added some hot sauce as well.

PUL Team - Dec. 9, 2023, 3:41 a.m.

Thanks, Anna, if you have any other feedback we'd love to hear it ✨

Kim Tee - Dec. 2, 2023, 8:24 p.m.

I have made this multiple times - truly one of my favourites and so easy! Made it just this week and ate the whole batch myself with some corn chips and raw veggies for dinner.

PUL Team - Dec. 2, 2023, 9:59 p.m.

Sounds like a delicious pairing, Kim! We’re glad that the “egg” salad sandwich is being enjoyed ☺️

Farhana - Nov. 30, 2023, 4:15 a.m.

SO GOOD! Like incredibly good. Pre-veganism, I hated eggs, so I was hesitant on trying an egg-type sandwich. My girlfriend made this sandwich for me and I couldn't stop eating them! I made a batch just now for my husband and I to have for lunch tomorrow. So excited!

PUL Team - Dec. 1, 2023, 12:38 a.m.

Awe we're so excited to hear, Farhana, thank you for the lovely review! Enjoy your lunch tomorrow 🤩

Wanda Mendes - Donko - Nov. 18, 2023, 10:19 p.m.

This is delicious, brings back memories of my childhood.

Britta - Nov. 15, 2023, 8:33 p.m.

I love this one. Tried it several times, even before the App existed. I add some table spoons of any kind of Yogurt to make the vegan egg salad a little lighter in taste.

Marije - Oct. 29, 2023, 12:41 p.m.

So good! Love it!

Molly Swanson - Oct. 17, 2023, 4:39 a.m.

This is one of my go-to recipes. Quick and easy lunch. I do like to add a bit of relish or some pickles though!

Anna - Oct. 9, 2023, 9:24 p.m.

This was very good! The salt makes it taste so much like an egg salad.

Olja M - Oct. 9, 2023, 5:35 a.m.

Great and super easy!!! My bf asked for extras :)

ksenija franeta - Oct. 5, 2023, 12:48 p.m.

It's so delicious and easy to make 😍 as a student it's my go to!!

ksenija franeta - Oct. 5, 2023, 12:56 p.m.

Oh, and also I put soya yogurt instead of mayo, just because I'm not such a mayo fan 😌

Silke - Sept. 25, 2023, 9:04 p.m.

New to tofu and this is the first time I made it and liked it. I've had it out at Thai places and liked it, but just in a learning phase right now. I added celery for a little crunch per the suggestion of my Vegan friend. Looking forward to the app being on Android!

PUL Team - Sept. 25, 2023, 11:10 p.m.

A lovely idea to add celery, Silke, thank you! We appreciate your patience with the Android version of the app too. It started getting tested by users last week and fingers crossed will be ready soon 🤞

Olivia - Sept. 24, 2023, 1:13 p.m.

A great brunch, lunch and snack option!

Matt - Sept. 18, 2023, 1:52 p.m.

This will forever be my go-to sandwich. So easy and so delicious!

Britt - Sept. 15, 2023, 10:59 p.m.

I have tried tofu several times in a variety of ways and this is the first time I have enjoyed it. This was surprisingly delicious and very easy to make. Another winner!

Star - Sept. 15, 2023, 5:58 a.m.

This is an amazing recipe. I love the nutty umami flavor of the nutritional yeast and the bright flavors of the spices. Definitely worth trying this recipe!

Alex - Sept. 4, 2023, 7:40 p.m.

I was so surprised by how flavor the tofu mixture turned out. Perhaps even better than egg salad.

Leslie Beggs - Sept. 2, 2023, 11:31 p.m.

So w we

marla - Aug. 31, 2023, 3:38 p.m.

easy and delicious:)

Louise - Aug. 15, 2023, 8:45 p.m.

My absolute favourite sandwich filler! I have been craving this for a couple of days and made today and was absolutely delish!! 10/10

Goes SO good on rye bread as well ! Amazing recipe

Luiza Alice - July 13, 2023, 1:26 p.m.

Hey, dear dears :) So I made it just 1st time- used real eggs though- organic, so good for the planet and hens.
And for 4 eggs just 3 Tbs of Mayo , rest same, and skipped the yeast and kala namak as haven’t had those and was so delicious and filling, thanks so much !!
Used rice crackers too as did have bread and those work with this great ! Continue the good work ;)

Cynthia Hernandez - July 10, 2023, 6:03 a.m.

So delicious even my carnivore brother liked it

Sarah - July 8, 2023, 6:25 a.m.

Made the egg mixture and used it as the eggs in my breakfast burritos! I even prepped and froze a bunch of burritos and they all reheated well. Secretly tested them out on my non vegan father (he had one regular egg bfast burrito and the vegan one I made) and he preferred the vegan one. Better flavor!

Amber Szymczyk - July 7, 2023, midnight

This is a staple in our house, especially in the summer when a cold sandwich makes for a refreshing lunch. The flavor is great!

Eileen - July 6, 2023, 1:18 p.m.

This recipe is so good! I’m blown away! I didn’t have either curry powder or kala namak at home and instead used a Café de Paris spice mix. Tasted so so good! Will definitely make this again.

Rocio Vallejo - July 5, 2023, 6:51 p.m.

You guys never disappoint. This salad is super yummy

Katye - July 4, 2023, 6:27 p.m.

This is amazing! I've had such a hard time meal prepping lately and this is very easy and flavorful. I would say it's better than any egg salad sandwich I ever remember having!!

PUL Team - July 6, 2023, 2:41 a.m.

A huuuge compliment, Katye! Thank you 😊

Maria N - July 3, 2023, 7:22 p.m.

This is great! I’ve made this at least 5 times. It’s a favorite in my house.

Cheryl Rugg - June 28, 2023, 10:27 p.m.

Best vegan egg salad ever!

es - June 12, 2023, 11:43 p.m.

i just downloaded the app and am browsing the recipes. I really don't feel like cooking at all, i’m an absolute disaster in the kitchen, i really am :( but I've made this egg salad at least 25 times. I also ate it today with the warm weather: really easy & delicious! 🤩

PUL Team - June 13, 2023, 2:01 a.m.

Hey there, es, aw thank you for your interest in the app - we're so glad this recipe is being enjoyed! It can be so challenging to cook in the chaos that life brings sometimes. Try not to be too hard on yourself 💛

Devika - May 27, 2023, 2:26 a.m.

Thank you so much for this recipe. I really love it, and satisfies my memories of egg Mayo sandwiches as part of lunch or afternoon tea 😊🙏
I use crumbled tofu, Mayo, salt, pepper and cress… and the softest bread.. yum!!!
And today as an experiment I toasted a portion.. wow!!! 👌

PUL Team - May 27, 2023, 3:53 a.m.

Awe sounds so lovely, Devika - thank you 🤗

Love the addition of the cucumbers for that snap!

Ann - May 7, 2023, 11:35 p.m.

I am in a caregiver role now for my beloved husband and struggle to make healthy delicious vegan meals. We love to eat good food (Thai, Indian, Vietnamese, Lebanese, Italian…anything vegan), but can’t go out to restaurants anymore due to his fragile health. This vegan egg salad is the first recipe I have tried from your website and I am blown away by how easy and delicious it is! I love watching your videos too. Thank you so much for what you and your team do Sadia. What you are giving out to the world matters greatly and is incredibly important. Please always remember that, as I’m sure sometimes it feels you are doing so much work and are unsure if anyone is aware of your efforts. It matters so much for people like me and my husband. So thank you, thank you, thank you for all you do!!!! We see you and hear you.

PUL Team - May 9, 2023, 10:53 a.m.

My dearest Ann, I cannot express how much your message means to me. Thank you so very much for taking the time to share it. I shared it with Robin last night, and also read it aloud to our team this morning. We are all deeply moved and grateful to have such compassionate and loving members in our community. It often feels like we are creating content and sending it out into the abyss, but comments like yours give us a sense of pride and joy in the work we do. Once again, thank you. Your husband is fortunate to have such a kind and gentle soul looking after him. We are sending you all of our love, and we wish your husband the very best ❤️

Lara - April 21, 2023, 6:59 p.m.

Dang! Dang dang dang! I just decided to make this on a whim at lunchtime and I think this will become one of my new go-tos since I always have these ingredients around! Praise to PUL!

Steph - April 21, 2023, 5:32 a.m.

I love this!! I’ve tried so many different recipes for egg salad sandwiches but this one is spot on!!!
Thank you, your recipes are amazing.

Jacinda - March 4, 2023, 6:50 a.m.

Delicious and super easy. Love this as a quick and light dinner on a hot evening

Silvia Natal - March 1, 2023, 7:15 p.m.

Oh my gash ! Really good taste ! I made a sour Dow bread for it and it came out excellent! I would not change a thing on it. Easy to make and fast

PUL Team - March 1, 2023, 10:27 p.m.

Mmm sourdough sounds lovely! Thank you, Silvia Natal 😊

Silvia Natal - Feb. 19, 2023, 4:18 p.m.

So easy to do and so delish !! Made it for a party

Elise - Feb. 14, 2023, 1 a.m.

Let me tell ya! This is the recipe that totally changed the concept of tofu scramble for me. The way you season and cook it in this recipe is perfect! The addition of vegan mayo is a revelation! Super quick and simple, so tasty and enjoyable.

PUL Team - Feb. 14, 2023, 8:12 a.m.

Awe thank you for the glowing review, Elise - it means so much 🥰

Just made it and I'm a big fan! So much flavor.

GiGi - Jan. 16, 2023, 12:06 a.m.

So easy and so yummy!

Diane Schuller - Jan. 9, 2023, 9:33 p.m.

This was easily 5 stars. We are new to a vegan lifestyle and this is one of the most flavourful sandwiches we have had. It's definitely going to be on regular rotation. I didn't have chives so finely diced celery instead -- nice crunch. And since I didn't quite have enough of my homemade mayo, I simply added some of my hummus and a dribble of water. Since I always have pickled red onions on hand, we added that to the sandwich -- winner. We both loved it and thank you so much for sharing this recipe -- and for all you do.

PUL Team - Jan. 10, 2023, 6:42 a.m.

Oh so lovely to hear, Diane, love the adjustments!

Sophia - Jan. 5, 2023, 6:06 p.m.

This recipe is AMAZING. It's so simple and quick, yet utterly delicious. I had this 3 days in a row after I first made it. I like it better than real egg salad.

Martunia - Jan. 5, 2023, 2:36 p.m.

It's so delicious and filling! I made this sandwich so many times and it never disappoints 🤗

Stine - Dec. 29, 2022, 2:31 p.m.

Made this so many times, it is really good on ryebread for lunch or breakfast.

PUL Team - Dec. 30, 2022, 4:43 p.m.

So glad it's being enjoyed, Stine!

Carolane - Nov. 23, 2022, 12:52 p.m.

Aw thank YOU, Carolane - it means so much 🤗

Diane K - Nov. 10, 2022, 2:36 p.m.

Mine did not turn that lovely egg yellow that yours is, maybe differences in turmeric and curry powders? I also added chopped celery, and have to say this was downright delicious. Thank you.

PUL Team - Nov. 10, 2022, 6:11 p.m.

Hey there, Diane, yes different hues in the spices and dijon mustard impact the colour of this one. Fresh varieties tend to be the most vibrant. So glad it was still enjoyed 😃

Paula Howard - Oct. 24, 2022, 4:56 a.m.

I watched your Vegan Egg Salad recipe on YouTube and immediately ordered a jar of Kala Namak from Amazon so I could make this dish. It is without a doubt my favorite vegan recipe and I have prepared it several times. I smile whenever I taste it.

Love your channel and enjoy your positive attitude.

PUL Team - Oct. 25, 2022, 6:48 a.m.

Oh such a big compliment, Paula, thank you for the glowing review! 💛

Julia - Oct. 21, 2022, 5:14 p.m.

This recipe is simple yet flavorful. I love it!

Nina - Oct. 17, 2022, 1:42 p.m.

How to make curry powder at home?

PUL Team - Oct. 18, 2022, 1:28 a.m.

Hey there, Nina, thanks for the question. We generally use a pre-made curry powder mix from our local grocery store. From our understanding, it contains a variety of spices with a base of coriander, cumin, chili pepper, and turmeric. We'll note down an idea to create a curry powder recipe. In the meantime, you may find our tikka masala recipe (…) or other curry powder recipes online helpful 😊

Katarina - Oct. 9, 2022, 7:14 p.m.

That was so good! My kids loved it (4 and 5 years old), and when I told them there are no eggs they couldn't believe it! They said I tricked them! Thanks PUL!

PUL Team - Oct. 9, 2022, 10:47 p.m.

Aw so glad it was enjoyed by the little ones too, Katarina! Thank you 😊

Dalia - Sept. 27, 2022, 10:34 a.m.

The taste is good but it falls apart in the lunch nox

PUL Team - Sept. 28, 2022, 8:08 p.m.

Hey Dalia, thanks for taking the time to share! If your bread is thinner you may find success with putting the layer of "egg" salad first since it's heavier for balance. We've also enjoyed this filling in a grilled sandwich and wrap which tend to be more sturdy if you're interested 🙂

Dalia - Oct. 3, 2022, 9:28 p.m.

Thank you, a wrap sounds like a good idea!

LaRee - Sept. 19, 2022, 2:14 a.m.

Love this recipe! Made it for y grown son and he requests it almost weekly. I do add chopped onion and celery like my mother did. Also sometimes I add chopped capers and cornichons. My whole extended family like this vegan egg salad sandwich. Thank you so much!

PUL Team - Sept. 19, 2022, 6:24 p.m.

Mmm such lovely additions, LaRee, sounds delicious 😍

Jess - Aug. 19, 2022, 12:36 p.m.

Absolutely amazing. i prefer this to meat sandwiches. Thank you for sharing.

PUL Team - Aug. 19, 2022, 1:23 p.m.

So glad it's being enjoyed, Jess!

Summer - Aug. 15, 2022, 10:03 p.m.

I love this recipe and I love so many of Sadia’s recipes as well. Thank you so much!!!

PUL Team - Aug. 16, 2022, 1:55 a.m.

It means so much, Summer, thank you!

Rob - Aug. 9, 2022, 8:08 a.m.

I was a bit skeptical about tofu straight from the pack and a few simple ingredients, but how wrong was I! This is incredibly delicious! Just made it for breakfast and it's super filling too. Thank you Sadia for another amazing recipe! I started plant-based eating in January and PUL has been such an amazing help! I really appreciate the clear recipes and the great videos, it must be so much work!

PUL Team - Aug. 10, 2022, 8:20 a.m.

Oh thank YOU, Rob, for the kind words and support! It means so much that the PUL content is being enjoyed and able to be part of the transition. Wishing you all the best on your plant-based journey 🌱

Breana - Aug. 1, 2022, 9:29 p.m.

Never in my life have I had a vegan egg salad taste better than actual egg salad and then more. This may be one of my favorite sandwiches. It was super easy and quick to make. My husband LOVED it! We've decided to have this in our lunch rotation at least once or twice a week. Seriously, one of the best things I've ever had.

PUL Team - Aug. 2, 2022, 5:17 a.m.

Such a massive compliment, Breana, we're smiling from ear to ear!

Ateana - Aug. 1, 2022, 8:01 p.m.

I loved it so much! I adapted a bit because I was missing some things (like mustard. My groceries store didn't have a single pot of mustard on sell anymore ^^;;), but it was delicious, and it made it clear that this recipe is rather versatile in a "throw what's in the fridge on it" way. Egg salad sandwiches aren't a thing here (France), that I know of, so it was a great find. Very practical recipe, super easy and fast to make, and very filling for my post-workout hunger.
The only thing that I need to remember is to lower the amount of mayo. I didn't use vegan mayo (I'm not actually vegan, but I don't eat that much meat and I love your recipes, so it works out great) and I think it was probably... heavier? than vegan mayo. Or next time I should get light mayo maybe. Might even be healthier.
Anyway, great recipe, I love how easy, inexpensive, and filling it is.

PUL Team - Aug. 2, 2022, 5:15 a.m.

We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with the sandwich, Ateana, thank you 😊

Courtney R - July 21, 2022, 12:26 a.m.

Absolutely delicious! I wish I’d have had curry powder but definitely next time.

PUL Team - July 21, 2022, 6:19 a.m.

Thank you, Courtney, and we hope you enjoy it was the curry powder 🤗

Franziska - July 14, 2022, 8:38 a.m.

absolutely prefer this egg salad to every real egg salad that I have ever eaten . . . love it 😍🤗😋

PUL Team - July 14, 2022, 7:48 p.m.

Such a huge compliment, Franziska, thanks a bunch!

Maria - July 12, 2022, 5:02 a.m.

This is awesome. I've made it three times already and every time I'm surprised at how good it tastes. It's just so easy and quick to make, just throw all the ingredients together and mix. I also love that it doesn't really need any special fresh ingredients, just things I keep on hand anyway (like tofu), which makes this an easy fallback dish that I need to remember to make more often!

PUL Team - July 13, 2022, 5:49 a.m.

Beyond happy to hear the recipe is being enjoyed, Maria, it means so much 😊

Aeowyn - July 1, 2022, 1:22 a.m.


Thank you PUL!!! <3

PUL Team - July 1, 2022, 8:23 p.m.

Thank YOU, Aeowyn!

Monica - June 26, 2022, 10:44 p.m.

Amazing! The whole family loves it - thank you

Yaël - June 24, 2022, 1:37 p.m.

This is so good, I have to hide it from the family or it'll be gone before I get home. And they're not even vegans.

PUL Team - June 25, 2022, 5:48 p.m.

Oh we're so glad the sandwich is being enjoyed by everyone, Yaël, thank you!

Susan - June 15, 2022, 4:41 p.m.

I was skeptical that this recipe would replace an egg salad sandwich but gave it a try and was I ever wrong. It was delicious, the flavour and the texture are great together. This recipe will definitely be a regular one in our house. I did not have the kala namak spice but had all of the other ingredients and we loved it!

PUL Team - June 17, 2022, 7:17 a.m.

Awe it means so much, Susan, thank you for sharing the incredible review! So happy it was enjoyed 🙂

Aurora - June 14, 2022, 10:59 p.m.

This is SOOOOOOO good!

Sarah - June 10, 2022, 7:01 p.m.

This is the best "egg salad" dupe I have ever had. It's so good that it's become a regular part of our home menu. I know it says best when eaten the same day but I think it's perfect for meal prep. It's fast to put together and I make the mix on Sunday to have prepped to use for the next couple days of lunches. Sometimes I put it on bread, sometimes I put it in a wrap, sometimes it's just in a bowl with greens, tomatoes, red onion like a "deconstructed" sandwich bowl. Just a great filling.

PUL Team - June 13, 2022, 3:45 p.m.

Thank you for the glowing review, Sarah, it's so appreciated! Love all of the variations to use the spread 😃

amanda - June 10, 2022, 6 p.m.

I subbed the chives with a few shakes of dried parsley and used mashed chickpeas instead of tofu and also added some apple cider vinegar for acidity
very good :D

PUL Team - June 13, 2022, 3:33 p.m.

Ooo sound like lovely modifications, Amanda, thank you for taking the time to share!

Sandra - June 10, 2022, 2:42 p.m.

Delicious! and finally something different from the ready-made spreads from the supermarket... ;)

PUL Team - June 13, 2022, 5:38 a.m.

Gotta love changing things up! Thank you, Sandra ✨

MaryBeth - June 10, 2022, 1:31 a.m.

I am in love with this eggless egg salad! I have tried using fresh dill in place of the chives and it is a great swap.

PUL Team - June 12, 2022, 10:27 p.m.

Mmm that sounds incredible! Thank you, MaryBeth 🙂

Sarina - June 9, 2022, 9:42 p.m.

So good for the summer. My favorite was to eat tofu!

Sarah - June 7, 2022, 2:13 p.m.

The best "egg" sandwich recipe! I love it!!!

PUL Team - June 8, 2022, 2:46 a.m.

A huge compliment, Sarah, thank you!

Hethe - May 31, 2022, 3:52 p.m.

We make this almost every week now!!!

Nat - May 31, 2022, 5:22 a.m.

I don't like eggs and I'm meh about sandwiches but this is delicious. I just used normal salt as I didn't want the sulfur taste and added pickles. Packs up perfectly for work or at home I've been toasting my bred before assembling.

PUL Team - May 31, 2022, 5:47 a.m.

We're so glad it's being enjoyed, Nat!

Gemma - May 21, 2022, 7:21 p.m.

This 'egg' salad is sssooo good guys, even sub out tofu for butter beans when I ran out. Thank you so much xxx

PUL Team - May 23, 2022, 2:45 a.m.

Mmm sounds lovely, Gemma, thank you for the feedback 😃

Marianna - May 16, 2022, 2:16 a.m.

You can eat tofu raw??? I thought it had to be cooked one way or another.

PUL Team - May 16, 2022, 4:36 a.m.

Hey Marianna, that's a super common question! We have eaten it uncooked before although it's always best to follow package instructions or recommendations from your local food safety agency. You could also boil the tofu for a few minutes before mixing it in the bowl if desired 😊

Alexandria - May 14, 2022, 11:34 p.m.

Already a go to in my house!! My toddlers love it and I usually have the ingredients on hand.

PUL Team - May 15, 2022, 11:34 p.m.

So thrilled to hear, Alexandria, thank you!

Labib - May 11, 2022, 9:33 p.m.

Hello I am coruntlly in weight loss period.Can I have smoothie and egg salad both for breakfast fast ?? Am I over eating in breakfast by having both?? I know I am asking out of your recipe qus .But if you can tell me it will be helpful for me. I am coruntlly having your smoothie recipe and tofu egg or normal egg .I am not a vegan so sometimes I have smoothie and scrambled eggs

Christine - May 6, 2022, 4:41 p.m.


I purchased your cookbook, but can't fine it on my Mac now. What's the name of the book so I can search it.


PUL Team - May 7, 2022, 8:05 p.m.

Hey Christine, the files start with "PUL_ecookbook_". Feel free to email us at [email protected] and we can look into sending you another copy if needed 🙂

Amanda - May 4, 2022, 11:41 p.m.

Very flavorful and tastey! The kala namak has me second guessing whether it's eggs or not, but it is so good!

PUL Team - May 6, 2022, 12:23 a.m.

Hehe so glad it was enjoyed, Amanda, thank you!

Brooke - May 2, 2022, 9:26 p.m.

Hi! What if I don't have nutritional yeast?? Can I skip that ingredient??

PUL Team - May 2, 2022, 9:34 p.m.

Hey Brooke! The nutritional yeast helps to add a cheesy and creaminess to the sandwich. You could try substituting the nutritional yeast for pulverized cashews to help mimic the creamy mouthfeel or exclude it if desired for a less cheesy/creamy sandwich filling 😊

Lenka - May 1, 2022, 11:31 a.m.

Dear Sadia,

this recipe is AMAZING. I'm really new in plant based eating - I remember very well how the "real" egg salad tastes and I swear this recipe is VERY AUTHENTIC! I added gherkins, as we do in egg salad, and I really recomend it to everyone.

PUL Team - May 2, 2022, 2:43 a.m.

Awe, Lenka, thank YOU for the kind words and for allowing PUL to be part of your plant-based journey 🌱

Nilou - April 30, 2022, 2:29 a.m.

This recipe really hit the spot - easy, delicious, and nostalgic! I followed the recipe exactly and used the Sol Cusine sprouted organic tofu - for my fellow Canadians. Yum... these will be in the rotation; I will switch out the bread and do 'lettuce wraps' so I can have these more often!

PUL Team - April 30, 2022, 9:59 p.m.

So happy to hear, Nilou! Lettuce wraps sound lovely as well ✨

Chris David - April 27, 2022, 7:42 a.m.

Really delicious recipe. I love it yummy!!! It's really awesome. Will surely try this. You can also try this one

Jace - April 26, 2022, 3:21 a.m.

Just made this for dinner and wow!!! Better than any egg salad sandwich I remember before going vegan! Thank you PUL!

PUL Team - April 26, 2022, 4:41 p.m.

Wow thank you for the glowing feedback, Jace! It means so much 🙂

Leigh - April 24, 2022, 5:05 p.m.

Even my kiddos loved it! And, that's saying a lot. The salt -- mind blown! Great recipe!

PUL Team - April 25, 2022, 4:25 a.m.

A huge compliment, Leigh!

Bea - April 24, 2022, 1:19 p.m.

Fantastic receipt! I finally know how the egg-taste is created! The kala namak salt! The receipt is simple and easy to make! Thanks !

PUL Team - April 25, 2022, 3:44 a.m.

So glad the sandwich wads enjoyed, Bea, thank you!

Charlotte - April 21, 2022, 10:02 p.m.

Egg salad sandwiches used to be my fave before I was vegan so I was super excited to try this recipe! I loved the combination of the curry flavours alongside the kala namak so give the 'egg' salad a delicious twist. Also it is crazy how similar tofu is to egg in texture in this form!

PUL Team - April 22, 2022, 5:28 a.m.

Awe love the connection! Thank you for taking the time to share, Charlotte ✨

Michaela - April 21, 2022, 10:27 a.m.

Wow, this is surprising. I don't know kala namak till now. This eggy flovour😳.
Very delicious, also if you dont have the best Tofu.

PUL Team - April 22, 2022, 5:03 a.m.

It's a game-changer, hey? Thanks for the kind words, Michaela 😃

Lawrence - April 19, 2022, 11:46 p.m.

I was absolutely blown away from this recipe. I used to have egg salad sandwiches a lot growing up, so when I saw this on the video I was over joyed. I made it today and shared some with my mother she couldn't tell the difference from regular egg salad. I didn't have chives so I made it will some fresh dill and added sweet pickle relish to make it closer to what I had as a kid. This was wonderful, thank you for yet another fantastic recipe!

PUL Team - April 20, 2022, 6:28 p.m.

Oh, Lawrence, thank YOU for the glowing feedback and review! We love the connection and adaptions of the sandwich too 🤗

Kaylin - April 18, 2022, 7:39 p.m.

Wow! This is truly incredible. I never thought I’d be able to eat something like this ever again. Amazing flavor.

PUL Team - April 18, 2022, 9:01 p.m.

It means so much that the sandwich was enjoyed, Kaylin, thank you!

Ellen - April 16, 2022, 5:33 p.m.

Really great recipe. I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical, but I cannot taste the difference from regular egg salad, and this was so easy to put together. I added some finely diced apple - the crunch and sweet tanginess go great with the "eggs".

PUL Team - April 16, 2022, 8:15 p.m.

Mmm love the addition of apples, Ellen! We're so glad the sandwich was enjoyed 😊

TT - April 15, 2022, 11:44 p.m.

This is PERFECT! I add celery and paprika. It’s a HUGE hit for all ages in my house! SOOOO easy to make!


PUL Team - April 16, 2022, 7:34 p.m.

Aw we're so happy to hear, TT, thank you!

Tischan - April 14, 2022, 6:29 p.m.

This was super tasty and easy! I did not have extra firm tofu because it is not readily accessible to me, but I pressed firm tofu for 20 mins and it worked just as well! Could I use half vegan plain yogurt and half mayo to try to make it healthier?

PUL Team - April 14, 2022, 7:42 p.m.

A lovely substitution to use firm tofu, Tischan! The mayo helps give a thick and creamy flavour while helping to spread out the yellow colour. You could use less if desired. For half plant yogurt, an unsweetened option would work best 😊

Mara - April 14, 2022, 6:29 p.m.

Just what I needed after a busy workday. I didn't time it but it felt like a lot less than 15min prep time :) Super fast and effortless!!
I didn't have any chives and while it still tasted great, I also look forward to the next time I'll make it when I can add chives.

PUL Team - April 14, 2022, 7:34 p.m.

We're so thrilled it was enjoyed, Mara, thank you! Let us know how it goes with chives ☺️
