About this recipe

Guess what? You’re 1 bowl and 15 minutes away from a healthy, tasty lunch. This easy eggless egg salad recipe combines classic ingredients like vegan mayo, mustard, fresh dill and chives, salt and black pepper with JUST Egg Folded, but it’s easy to riff on it and make it your own. Add chopped green onions or a dash of kala namak (black salt) for even more eggy flavor. Try sprinkling in some cayenne, paprika, dill pickle relish or nutritional yeast. Perfect as is, and endlessly versatile for your lunchtime improvisations, this eggless egg salad sandwich recipe means you never have to reach for a soggy block of extra-firm tofu when you’re craving a plant-based egg salad sandwich.

This recipe uses our convenient JUST Egg Folded, which gives you all the eggy goodness and protein, without any cholesterol. JUST Egg Folded is also gluten-free, dairy-free and egg-free. It has that fluffy, medium-firm texture that makes a classic egg salad so delightful to stuff in sandwiches or pita bread. Get more vegan recipes like this one on our cookbook page.
