  • 2 tsp finely chopped chives
  • 1 large white sandwich or wholemeal loaf (10-12 slices), or 12 mini rolls (use gluten-free bread if necessary)
  • 1 punnet cress (optional)


  1. Remove the tofu from the pack and press out the excess water, either between sheets of kitchen paper or a clean tea towel, weighed down with a plate for about 30 mins.

  2. Mix the mayo, mustard, turmeric and nutritional yeast together with a little salt and pepper.

  3. Crumble the tofu into a bowl, leaving large chunks to create a chopped egg texture. Gently stir in the chives. If you want it looser you can add more mayo.

  4. Spread the mixture on the bread to make four or five rounds of sandwiches (depending on how much filling you want), then add cress, if you like. Use a sharp knife to cut into triangles.

This might be a stupid question but does the tofu need cooking before making the sandwiches?

Hi Natalie, No question is stupid! No you don't need to cook the tofu before you use it. I hope you like these, I was really impressed by the way they turned out in the test kitchen. Lulu
