Mock Turkey SaladThis is my go to tofu salad that I make with frozen tofu.  I freeze the extra firm or firm tofu for at least 3 days. Then I take it out of the freezer and defrost it in the sink overnight. The tofu is seasoned and cooked first and put in the freezer to cool while I make the soy mayonnaise and cut celery and parsley.

It reminds me of the turkey salad my mom would make after Thanksgiving. But vegan of course.

It is great on a sandwich with sprouts and tomatoes.

Ingredients for the tofu marinade

  • 1 TBSP peanut or almond butter
  • 1 TBSP  soy sauce
  • 1 TBSP apple cider vinegar
  • 1 TBSP ketchup or 1 TBSP tomato paste and 1/2 tsp of agave
  • 1 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 2 TBSP oil

Instructions

  1. Mix the first 5 ingreients together.
  2. Squeeze the water out of the tofu
  3. Tear the tofu into pieces . It shold come apart in layers
  4. Add tofu to marinade and squeeze in the marinade with your hands
  5. Heat oil in a cast iron pan on medium
  6. Add tofu and turn after it is brown on side one.
  7. Cook side 2 being careful not to let it burn, turning down the heat to medium low.
  8. Put tofu in freezer to cool to room temperature.

Ingredients for salad

  • 4 TBSP soy mayo (recipe on blog)Mock Turkey Salad
