Curried Tofu Salad (full recipe and a video!)
Curried Tofu Salad a tasty filling idea for everything from collard greens to wraps to bread to rolls, and we would know because we tried it each of those ways. We came up with this recipe after making an egg salad replacement using tofu. We gave it a Veginspired twist by baking the tofu, yes you read that correctly. The baked tofu paired with the curry powder provides an excellent flavor and texture, perfect for your next lunch or picnic.
