Why does a Vegan an egg salad? Honestly, I didn’t want to write anything about this topic for a long time, but sometimes questions like this could just make my head spin. Have you invented Egg invented and a patent on it? Could be a possible answer to that. To be honest, I prefer to keep my distance from discussions of this kind, but sometimes you just can’t hide under the carpet. My personal answer to why I make myself an egg flavored tofu salad? Because it simply tastes good to me and I don’t hurt anyone with it. Sometimes, however, you might actually think that you are shaking certain people to their core. Guys, honestly, I don’t speak up either, no matter what someone puts on their plate. Of course, I am happy to clarify if you are interested, but I am not there to proselytize. But now let’s explore together a really simple and delicious Recipe with egg flavor, but without the Egg .
Vegan egg salad with Kala Namak
I can still remember well when eggs were firmly integrated into my diet. Boiled eggs, Scrambled eggs or even sometimes an egg salad. One thing that has always bothered me a lot was this feeling of fullness after eating eggs. I have not since I vegan live and I love it. You can eat super full, but you don’t feel like you have to move to the next couch right away. Since I still find the pure taste of boiled egg interesting, I was looking for a vegan version of an egg salad. Perfect for this is the Ayurvedic salt “ Kala Namak “, which tastes more or less like egg due to the sulfur compounds it contains.
Time for vegan sandwiches with egg salad
What do we need for today’s “ Salad “? First of all a portion of mayo, for this I use my homemade cashew mayo . Natural tofu, kala namak, apple cider vinegar, sweet paprika, yeast flakes, turmeric, pepper, pickles and capers. If you like, you can optionally add spicy mustard or ground mustard seeds. The whole thing is then stirred once vigorously and ready is our Salädchen.
I totally like the salad in a Sandwich wrapped with fresh lettuce leaves and a handful of herbs on top. However, it is also wonderful and delicious pure. It is equally perfect for a vegan buffet. The turmeric adds another beautiful golden color and we are ready!
How healthy is actually turmeric?
According to Dr. Greger and his book “How to not Diet” very, very healthy and above all a wonderful, natural way to stimulate fat metabolism. Greger and his team have made it their life’s work to comb through thousands of studies and teach people how to eat truly healthy. I will certainly always include one or two nutrition tips in my blog articles. But today it’s about Turmeric , because the spice is supposed to:
- Stimulate the fat metabolism
- Possess anticancer properties
- Naturally counteract inflammation in the body
- Even prevent Alzheimer’s disease by preventing deposits of certain proteins in the cerebral cortex
Turmeric is also called turmeric and at the latest once you have worked with the spice, you know why. It stains massively, so it is best to protect clothing and wear gloves. Personally, I don ‘t wear gloves and am always happy to see fingers already dyed yellow. TIP : Turmeric am take together with a little pepper. why? The piperine contained in pepper is said to increase the body’s ability to absorb curcumin (the active ingredient in turmeric).
