Tofu Garlic Vegan Mayo

I don't currently have the luxury of a lot of ingredients lying around. The coronavirus has turned everything on its head. Still, I'm trying to find comfort in familiar hobbies like cooking and origami.

What I did have was half a package of silken firm tofu that needed to be used and a whole head of garlic that wasn't getting any younger. That is the inspiration for this recipe. That, and my love of all things creamy and garlicky.

Ingredients
1/2 package silken firm tofu, drained
8 cloves garlic, stems removed
1 habanero, deseeded
1 serrano
3 tbls olive oil
3 tbls white vinegar
1 tbl salt
1/2 can chick peas, drained and rinsed

Puree all ingredients in your food processor until a creamy mixture is the result.

It's great right away, but you can chill it in the fridge for a few hours to thicken and let the flavors coalesce.

This is extremely garlic forward and also hot from the chiles. Because the mayo is tofu based and tofu has no flavor of its own, the full on flavor …

Sandwich Love Vegan Style

As is evidenced by my many posts on them, I love sandwiches. A lot. Pretty much everything tastes better when in sandwich format. Don't believe me... try it. Take any food and stick it on a roll and I guarantee it will satisfy you better and taste great. It's also easier to eat. Hand-held is the way to go.

Here is a pictorial run down of some of great vegan sandwiches. They use uncommon sandwich ingredients, but taste way better than the typical meat and cheese kind.

Curry lentils and barley on a kaiser roll. Roll is buttered with hummus. Mix of lentils, barley, cauliflower, garlic and mustard greens fill out the sandwich.Recipe for curry lentils
Mexican rice on whole wheat bread. It's not much to look at. Kinda beige, but don't let that fool you. The flavors are plenty colorful. Bread is buttered with hummus before adding the rice mix. Recipe for rice mix.
