Recipe Directions

  • 1. Place everything (except celery and red pepper) into a high-speed blender. Blend very well until it resembles a smooth, creamy Hollondaise sauce.
  • 2. Pour yellow “egg salad” liquid mixture into a large bowl. Add finely chopped celery and red pepper.
  • 3. Stir everything together with a spoon until celery and red pepper are nicely coated.
  • 4. Enjoy immediately or store for up to 4 days in the fridge.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

This cashew-based mock egg salad recipe tastes surprisingly like the real thing.  It’s very rich and satisfying, and tastes best when balanced with light, fresh veggies, especially romaine lettuce. 

If your blender isn’t powerful and has a difficult time blending harder items, consider soaking the cashews in warm water for an hour to soften them. Rinse and pat dry before using.

Another idea is to add some chopped mushroom to the red bell pepper and celery. The chewy texture of the mushrooms resembles the texture of egg whites.

I'm not sure if this tastes like egg salad or not, only because it's been about 20 years since I've had real egg salad! But either way, this is delicious! I was looking for a quick and easy dinner and this was exactly that. Thanks! :)

Just made this! Delicious! I used green pepper instead of red pepper (just personal preference), added onion and it tasted just like egg salad! WOW! Thanks so much for a tasty and simple recipe!

You can find Kala Namak (Black Salt) at Indian grocery stores or Amazon.com Not sure how it ever got the name "Black Salt" as it is an odd pink color rather than black.

Not sure if this will help with research, but I found this description of this salt:
"Kala Namak
Kala Namak is also known as Indian Black Salt. It has an unforgettable smell, similar to egg yolks. It is used extensively in Indian cuisine. This salt has become popular with vegan chefs for adding natural egg flavor to their dishes. Pink with a powdery texture."

Be careful, though, because there is also a salt called Black Salt from Hawaii, and that's not the same thing. :)

Oh…my…gosh. Just made this and I’m astounded by how much it tastes like egg salad (or at least what I remember egg salad tasting like…I’ve been vegan for quite awhile). I wrapped it in collard leaves, and it was so delicious I nearly polished off the whole recipe. You are a GENIUS. Thank you!

Mmm yah I imagine that this would be fab with collard leaves! The creaminess and the bite of the collard would go perfectly, I would imagine.

Now you've got me craving the collard/egg salad combo Abbie!

I don't buy collard leaves very frequently b/c I don't ever seem to eat them when I have them. Thanks to you I will try this combo :)

Are you familiar with black salt? It has a really strong sulphurous (i.e. eggy) smell. It would definitely give your dish a more egg-like flavour. (Despite the quite potent smell, it is very good, especially on avocadoes)

Never heard of it but I'll keep my eye out for it from now on. Sounds yummy. I mean, eggy, but yummy, if you know what I mean ;)

Try adding chopped young coconut meat-- it's texture is VERY similar to hard-boiled egg white.

That sounds like an excellent idea, Ana. Another reason why I must find a good source for young thai coconuts!

For those who aren't 100% raw, I put some white beans in there for texture, and thought that was a pretty good addition. Awesome recipe either way though. Thanks!

This egg salad recipe was fantastic. I love how all of your recipes are so easy to follow and quick to make. This recipe took maybe 10 minutes! It probably wouldve taken less time but I threw in some chopped avocado. For some reason I think that avocado(by itself) taste just like the yolk in a boiled egg... So strange.
So it made this recipe perfect for me.

Thanks again!

My pleasure! I do try to make everything pretty easy. I mean, we all have real lives, right??

The avocado addition sounds yummy. I could see how it would taste like boiled egg yolk. I'm gonna try that next time I make this.

Oh My GOD!! This is AMAZING!! I made it on a whim since we are going to a BBQ tomorrow and I was bored but I am sooo glad I did! It is perfect! I did a bit a tweaking to meet my taste preference but Laura-Jane, you did it again! Everyone Should go out and make it right now!!

If you soak some extra cashews for a really really long time (24 hours) you can do a rough chop and throw them in for something that feels like egg whites!

I will make this tomorrow. I'm not raw, but am a vegan who eats mostly raw foods. The only vegetarian food I miss is eggs and have been wanting to find a sub. Even if it doesn't taste like eggs, cashews are my fav nut, so it should be yummy. My mouth is watering so much it might be hard to sleep tonight. ;)
