400gramsfirm tofuAlternatively use two 400g/14oz cans chickpeas, drained.
4tablespoonsalad cressuse the salad cress from those little pots available in most supermarkets beside the salad aisle. Alternatively use larger watercress leaves but chop into smaller pieces. Use extra salad cress if preferred.
1smallred onionfine chopped. Alternatively use fine chopped spring/green onions. Or chopped chives.
Squeeze the tofu to remove excess water. Some brands such as Tofoo.co don't require pressing as they are pre-pressed.I use 2 small chopping boards and some paper towels. Place paper towel under and above the tofu. Sit the tofu on one of the boards and press down with the other board to gently squeeze water out.
Place the tofu in a bowl and mash with a fork.
Mix through the red onion, watercress, and mayonnaise.
Add black salt a pinch at a time until you've happy with the flavour. Add salt and pepper to taste if necessary.
Tofu mayonnaise is best served chilled but if all the ingredients were already chilled your filling may be good to go.
Spread your bread with a little vegan margarine if liked.Pop some salad leaves on the bread or have the salad on the side.Fill your sandwich with the tofu mayo and pop on another slice of bread.
Serve garnished with extra salad cress and/or chives.

Leftover tofu mayonnaise will keep fresh in the fridge, within a covered container, for 3-4 days.
Instead of a sandwich tofu mayonnaise can be enjoyed stuffed into a baked potato, romaine lettuce leaves, or as part of a salad/power/Buddha bowl.
For a more substantial dinner serve your favourite soup with a tofu mayonnaise sandwich.
