Creamy Tofu Salad (Sandwiches)
Switched to Gourmet Today.
1 14-ounce package firm tofu, drained and rinsed
1/2 c mayonnaise (hmm, I don't think I've ever spelled that whole word)
1 t fresh lemon juice
1 t turmeric
1/2 t dry mustard
2 celery ribs, finely chopped (*gags* celery is only a vehicle for peanut butter or pimento cheese)
1/4 c chopped fresh chives
1/2 t salt, or to taste
1/4 t pepper, or to taste
8 slices whole wheat
8 Boston lettuce leaves
8 tomato slices
Finely mash tofu with a fork (or your hands, like I did) in a bowl. Transfer to a sieve (or paper towel lined colander, like I did) and let drain for 15 minutes. Discard liquid.
Whisk together mayo, lemon juice, turmeric, and dry mustard in a bowl. Stir in tofu, celery, chives, salt, and pepper.
Make sandwiches with bread, tofu salad, lettuce, and tomatoes.
