Day 15: Weeknight Wednesday "Egg" Salad Sandwhich

This dinner is for the most hurried of weeknight meals. It takes only 15 minutes to put together, but is healthy and satisfying. Chickpeas give the texture of cooked egg yolk and diced soft tofu gives the illusion of chopped egg white. There's not a lot to it.

"Egg" Salad Sandwich
Serves 4
Time: 15 minutes

For the "Egg" Salad
1 can chickpeas, mashed with a fork
1 package soft tofu, diced
1/2 cup Vegannaise
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon Sriracha
3 scallions, sliced thinly
2 stalks celery, minced
2 teaspoons granulated garlic
1 teaspoon black salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon dried dill
1 teaspoon paprika

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.

To serve

8 slices whole wheat sandwich bread
1 large tomato, sliced
1 avocado, peeled and sliced
8 romaine lettuce leaves

Toast bread. To prevent the bread from getting soggy with the salad, place a leaf of lettuce between the bread and the salad on both the top and bottom of the sandwich. Distribute the avocado and tomato slices between the sandwhiches, scoop salad onto each sandwich, and assemble.
