Vegan Egg Mayonnaise

Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 15th of April 2024  I used to love a good egg mayonnaise sandwich at the weekend, but since being a vegan I have not had one.  Until now that is.  After looking around the internet for a bit, I found some recipes and altered them a little to suit my needs. This is the result and I'm well pleased!  The breakthrough was learning to use two types of tofu in order to mimic the yoke and egg white and that Indian black salt adds an eggy flavour! Notes Yes, you must use Indian black salt because that is what gives it the eggy flavour.  This salt has a pinkish grey colour when it is ground down.  Don't over do the salt.  Test it as you go. The silken tofu adds a different texture, mimicking the egg yolk.    Serves 5 – 6 people Time, 5 – 8 minutes. Ingredients  Silken tofu x 200 g Extra firm tofu x 200 g Indian black salt x 3/4 tsp turmeric x 1/2 tsp White pepper x 1/8 tsp Vegan Mayonnaise x 4 tbsp Spring onions x 3 Water crest to top your sandwich.  

Vegan Margherita Pizza

Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 8th of April 2024 Very simple pizza for a quick midweek bit of fun. What I like about this pizza is the way it is light on the calories at less than 500 for the entire pizza. 

Black Bean Steak

Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 2nd of April 2024 Fancy a vegan steak?  Ok, why not make your own? This is very easy and quick to make with lots of flavour, so why not give it a go?  The black beans contain a lot of protein and roughage.
