A Trick, a Treat, and Curried Egg Salad Sandwich

curried

Trick

It’s curried “egg” salad with lettuce and sliced cucumbers in a whole wheat pita.

Treat

But it’s made with tofu instead!

November already, but I don’t know how to be anything but fashionably late for this (last) month’s Halloween edition of End of the Month Eggs on Toast Extravaganza. That silly tofu absolutely insisted on doing some yoga first before dressing up in a very revealing sweet and spicy curried egg salad costume – spilling out of it everywhere! I’ve said before how much I don’t like tofu dressing up as tofu bratwurst, tofurkey or soy chicken, but this is different. Tofu is not really trying to pass itself off as eggs – only for the EotMEoTE Halloween Costume Ball!

The salad is made with chopped tofu, scallions, red onions, green bell peppers, raisins, and cashews, then dressed with a mixture of mayonaisse, a touch of dijon mustard, minced garlic, curry powder, salt, and pepper. I couldn’t help but add a bit of hot sauce, too. Another treat? Putting into pita bread holds it all together better that two slices of bread, so I didn’t have to use as much mayonaisse (even though I do love that mayo!)

i know, i know, “curried” is nothing new under the sun, and neither is tofu as a stand-in for hard boiled eggs, but at least it looks better than the “eggless” tofu salad they have at the whole foods market food bar :)

Mmmm! Looks delicious and it’s lunch time. Hope the deli up the street has curried tofu salad!

All I can say is wow. The sandwich looks absolutely stunning and I wonder when I will take a hold of one. Halloween makes my belly full as neighbors constantly give their share of cooking.

Oh excellent!!! I’ve never been all that keen on tofu but this looks much much better than any egg salad I’ve ever seen.

P.S. Hey! How come the EoMEoTE police haven’t barged in here to lay (hehehehehe) charges because of the lack of eggs in this post? (Hmmmm, I suspect some sort of prejudicial profiling…) hehehehehehehehehehehehe
