I just wound up making a terrific no-egg eggsalad that doesn't use tofu.
I was actually trying to replicate a Russian mushroom salad that I had in
a Russian restaurant, but this was a pretty cool "accident."
No-Tofu Mock Eggsalad
1 15-oz can broken straw mushrooms (I used these only because they're
cheap, around 99 cents a can)
3 Tablespoons FF mayo
*Generous* amount ground black pepper
salt to taste
Rinse and drain the 'shrooms and press out as much excess water as
possible. Drop into a food processor and process the heck out of them.
When they're reduced to itty bitty pieces, remove into a bowl and add
remaining ingredients (a little tumeric can be added to give it an eggy
color). That's it! This is nice on toast and as a topping on baked
potatoes, or even eaten plain as a side salad. As it's a bit on the
bland side without the pepper, you can spice it up with garlic, chili, or
the spice blend of your choice.
