Kala namak AKA black salt is the secret ingredient to many vegan recipes. It is a kiln-fired rock salt with a similar texture to a pink Himalayan salt, but with a strong hard-boiled egg flavour. Often used in South Asian cooking, it is the perfect way to add egg flavour to any eggless dish. It is amazing in this Can You Vegan It? egg salad sandwich recipe — serve it between two slices of your favourite bread or on a toasted sourdough baguette (my preference!).
Press the tofu before using to drain out any excess liquids and ensure it soaks up the ingredients.
In a mixing bowl, toss together the tofu, celery and green onion. Set aside.
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, turmeric, kala namak and pepper.
Pour mixture over tofu and toss to coat. Scoop mixture over bread, garnish with chives and enjoy!
