pulse-based “egg” salad

by Jackie Newgent  |  February 15, 2022  |  2 Comments
If you’re an egg salad fan but looking for a vegan version of it — or just a new-fangled twist on it — this pulse-based “egg” salad is the answer.

On the day I settled in, I decided to grab a bite at the hotel restaurant, Openaire—and devoured a sandwich made with avocado, braised carrots, sunflower tahini, shaved fennel, and sprouts on 7-grain bread. I was inspired … as you can see by this recipe. It’s my twist on it.

pistachio-accented hummus with pickled pistachios

I seriously don’t think I could live without hummus. Being half Lebanese could be one reason for that! The other is that I simply love it.
