Veggie Tuna Salad
From: DJudge6453

From PETA: http://www.envirolink.org/arrs/peta/recipes/index.htm

Since we discovered this amazing recipe for veggie tuna salad, the whole office has been raving about it!
Try this "fab fake" on a toasted bagel with lettuce and tomato for a great lunchtime treat. Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. firm tofu, frozen and thawed
  • 1 celery stalk, diced
  • 1 Tbsp. minced red onion
  • 2 Tbsp. grated carrot
  • 1/2 cup eggless mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp. tamari
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. kelp powder
Squeeze the excess moisture out of the thawed tofu and crumble it into small pieces.
Combine with the celery, onion and carrot.

Stir together the mayonnaise, tamari, lemon juice and kelp powder in a small bowl.
Add the mayonnaise mixture to the tofu and vegetables and mix well.

Makes 6 servings.

Top Tip:
Freezing tofu gives it a chewy texture--great when using it as a meat substitute!
Here's how: First, drain the tofu and press out the excess water, then seal it in a plastic freezer bag.
Freeze for at least 24 hours.
Frozen tofu can be thawed quickly by pouring hot water over it.
(Be sure to press out excess water before using the tofu in your recipe.)
Kelp powder, made from dried kelp (a sea vegetable), gives food a slightly "fishy" flavor.
Look for it in health food stores.
