This easy to make vegan recipe is ideal for lunches and is packed with protein for afternoon energy!

Makes 3 to 4 servings | Takes 30 min

350 grams extra firm tofu (2 pkg)

225 mL Vegenaise

1 Tbsp Dijon mustard

¼ cup organic red onion, diced small

½ cup organic celery, diced small

1 Tbsp organic ground turmeric

½ tsp black pepper

½ tsp sea salt

Dash of Bragg liquid soy seasoning 

Drain the tofu and pat dry with paper towel. Pulse quickly in a food processer until it reaches the consistency of cooked ground beef. You can also grate the tofu with a hand grater if needed. In a small bowl, mix Vegenaise with turmeric, Dijon, black pepper, sea salt and Bragg liquid soy seasoning (“Bragg’s” for short). Using a spatula or your hand, combine the Vegenaise mixture with the tofu until fully incorporated. Fold in the red onion and celery. Voila! Let this sit for five minutes to enable the Tofu to absorb all the yummy flavours. Fold into wraps with your favourite available seasonal vegetables, such as red pepper, lettuce and cucumber. Enjoy!

This eggless alternative to traditional mayonnaise has found fame in recent years on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and in Gwyneth Paltrow’s cookbook,  It’s All Good. With less saturated fat and cholesterol than regular mayo, this product lets you enjoy your tuna sandwich without the heavy after-bloating effect. Plus, it’s non-GMO certified, naturally gluten- and dairy-free, and doesn’t contain preservatives.

Bragg liquid aminos

Known simply as “Bragg’s” to those in the know, this product is a gluten-free alternative to soy sauce. Derived from soybeans, Bragg’s is a liquid protein concentrate containing 16 essential and non-essential amino acids. It’s non-GMO certified, free from preservatives and artificial colouring and preservatives and it is not fermented.

It’s salty with a bit of that elusive umami flavour, making it great for salad dressings, marinades and most foods that needs a little flavour boost. One teaspoon contains 320mg of sodium so go easy. You can dilute this product as needed.
