A veganized version of my favorite tuna pasta salad!


  • 1 lb your favorite pasta
  • 2 1/2 cups crumbled extra firm tofu, I like to use a homemade or store-bought baked tofu so it has some nice flavor*
  • 3/4 cup chopped celery
  • 3/4 cup grated carrot
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 3/4 cup vegan mayo
  • 2 tablespoons nori flakes (I just blended up some sushi roll paper)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste (I also love topping mine with liquid aminos!)
  • 2 teaspoons nutritional yeast


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.  Drain pasta and let cool for about 10 minutes.
  2. While pasta is cooking, add the remaining ingredients to a large bowl and mix until combined.
  3. Add the cooled pasta and mix again.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.


*If you’re not using baked tofu, I would recommend cubing up the tofu and sautéing it with a little olive oil and soy sauce until it gets browned and crispy.  Then crumble it up and add it in.
