No Egg Egg Salad

I don't know why but I never really gave much of a thought about the whole egg-spring thing. Around this time of the year, when you go to any kind of the shops, eggs are everywhere. Somehow it became the symbol of spring. I guess it has to do with all the bird babies being born in the nature, nature waking up... How weird is it then that we celebrate the life coming with spring with something that could not be further from life? Just in the US, 260 million male chicks are killed every year because they are not suitable to the egg industry. Around 29 million in the UK, 23 million in Canada... When you think of it globally, it's just atrocious to imagine how many animals have to die for people to make their scrambled eggs or the egg salad! And it's so simple to make it without cruelty involved! I have this BOMB No Egg Egg Salad that you will love! I swear, you won't know the difference!

You might have noticed that I haven't written that much lately. It might have been a year actually. So there are a few reasons for it. If we put aside a teeny tiny burnout that I went through and a whole spiritual transformation, The biggest reason is that I got involved in the animal rights movement and somehow, just writing pretty recipes and being this "pick me vegan" was no longer acceptable. But I had no idea what direction to take all of this. I love cooking and I need to fight for animals. So... Let's combine it So before we get to the recipe, let me share a bit more of what actually is going on in the Egg industry.

Maybe the best video that sums up all that is going on is the video made by none other than Earthling Ed. You can watch it here. It also explains why backyard eggs are not acceptable either. To sum all up, there are a few points that people are not aware of or do not want to hear about. First of all, the shiny "free range", "organic" or "family farm" labels are just a mean to numb people's consciousness. But quite frankly, they are just a pile of crap Your "free range" chickens have space of maybe 1 sheet of paper to live on, they rarely see the daylight. They are mutilated and abused. The male chicks are killed in a huge grinder within the first day of their lives because... duh... males don't make eggs. Females are then abused till exhaustion and suffer from multiple diseases and fractures due to lack of calcium (that they put all in their eggs). We have genetically modified them to produce 300 eggs instead of 10-12 eggs a year... It's just ridiculous...

You might object that you do have those backyard eggs and that your chickens have a wonderful life. No doubt they do have better lives than in the industry, however it's still the same genetically modified chickens, they often do come from the industry that breeds them. By taking their eggs, you are normalizing the fact that they have no body autonomy and they can just be used as objects. Not to mention that the pastry and cakes and other stuff that you get when you are outside of your house doesn't contain those backyard eggs but feeds the egg industry again. So please, do better if you still consume eggs and choose kind. ALWAYS choose kind.

Now the recipe

You will need:

  • 1 package of firm tofu, mashed with a fork or finely grated with a grater

  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard

  • 4 tbsp vegan mayo

  • 3 spring onions, chopped

  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast

  • 1 tsp black salt

  • 1/4 tsp turmeric

Black salt is another magic igredient that you need to have in your pantry! It gives this nice eggy smell/flavor that you can add to your "egg-like" meals! You can get it at any shop with diverse spice section Oh and BTW! It actually doesn't look black but PINK!

And... The steps are literally the easiest thing. Just mix all together and voil! It's that easy and I swear to God it does taste EXACTLY like the regular egg spread/salad that you were used to have in your sandwiches!

You can play with the amounts of mayo, I saw recipes with much more but for us 4 tbsp max is the best

PS: No eggs were used in the making of the photo Make your egg related holidays such as Easter Egg-less!
