1 teaspoon Italian seasoning blend
3 heaping tablespoons vegan mayonnaise
1 rounded tablespoon Dijon or spicy brown mustard

¼ teaspoon ground turmeric
1/8 teaspoon sea salt, plus more as needed
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

INSTRUCTIONS:

Put the tofu into a medium-sized bowl and mash using a potato masher or large fork until crumbly, but chunks of the tofu remain. Add the carrots, olives and Italian seasoning and stir to combine.

Put the vegan mayonnaise, mustard, optional miso, optional paprika, turmeric and salt into a small bowl and whisk to combine. Pour the mayo mixture over the tofu and stir to thoroughly coat the tofu, carrots and olives.

CHEF'S NOTE: If you cannot have (or do not like) tofu, simply substitute one can (15 to 16 ounces) of drained and rinsed chickpeas (garbanzo beans) for the tofu. Proceed with recipe as directed!
