Spicy Vegan “Egg” Salad Bagels

have you ever had Spicy Vegan “Egg” Salad Bagels? probably not, and now is your chance! wow, this is probably one of my favorite recipes to date. you won’t believe how easy Spicy Vegan “Egg” Salad Bagels are to make for lunch. oh, also, it’s PACKED with flavors.

the flavors and textures are both so on point. egg salad is all the rage right now, but us vegans can have some fun too.

my version is protein PACKED by the way, so even if you’re not vegan, you should totally try this recipe. it might convert you!

the base of the spicy “egg” salad is made with chickpeas and tofu, and i used organic for both.

in order to get that grainy texture, i just popped the chickpeas and tofu in the food processor for a few pulses. it doesn’t take much!

then, you can transfer the mixture to a bowl and add alllll of the flavor.

for the sauce, you’re going to need some plain and unsweetened dairy free yogurt, plain hummus, sriracha or Gochujang paste, liquid aminos and more.

not much more though, this recipe is super simple. while you can eat the “egg” salad plain, i do recommend bagels, because bagels make everything better.

also, i added a little bit of avocado for some healthy fats and it is the perfect addition!

since so many people in the upbeetandkaleingit community have been wanting more lunch ideas, this is a must make!

i love that it’s protein packed too! the bagel sandwich is honestly really filling when you pair it with avocado too.

you can store Spicy Vegan “Egg” Salad Bagels in the fridge, just wait to assemble the bagels until the day of.

it truly tastes better the next day even because all of the flavors have time to marinate. this recipe did not last long in our house though.

if you saw this on Instagram or TikTok, i’m sure you can appreciate the asmr haha, there was a lot of that.
