Equipment

  • Knife
  • Knife
  • Pot
  • Grater
  • Frying Pan
  • Mixing Bowl

Ingredients
  

  • ½ Head cauliflower approximately 400g, broken into florets
  • 180 grams Firm tofu grated
  • ¼-½ tsp Black Himalayan salt
  • ¼ tsp Turmeric
  • 4 Stalks of spring onion chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp Vegan mayo*
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 8 Slices of sandwich bread or 4 baguettes
  • Greens as desired

Instructions
 

  • Bring water to boil in a medium pot. Add cauliflower florets and cook them for about 10-15 minutes. The texture should be soft enough to easily pierce with a fork but firm enough to maintain its integrity. Drain the water and allow the cauliflower to cool.
  • Heat the frying pan over medium heat. Add tofu, black salt and turmeric. Cook it for about 10 minutes, stirring regularly. Allow it to cool down.
  • Once cauliflower is cool enough to handle, chop it into small pieces.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine cauliflower, tofu, spring onions, vegan mayonnaise, and Dijon mustard. Give it a good mix.
  • To assemble a sandwich, simply add your “egg” filling and your favourite greens.

Notes

If you don’t have access to store-bought vegan mayo, you can replace it with a mixture of 2-3 tbsp of coconut yoghurt and 1 tbsp of nutritional yeast.
Store the filling separately from the bread. Sandwich tastes best when it’s assembled just before serving.
