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!


  • 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.


  • 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.


  1. Using your hands, break up the silken tofu into small pieces. 
  2. Add the turmeric and 1/4 tsp of the black salt. 
  3. Mix it up with a fork. 
  4. Crumble the extra firm tofu into the bowl.  Mix together and add the rest of the black salt and the spring onion.  Mix with a fork. 
  5. Add the vegan mayo and mix again.
