DefaultVeg is simple—make plant-based food the default and give people the choice to opt-in for meals with animal products. DefaultVeg is inclusive, reduces your carbon footprint, and increases the healthfulness of your meals. Making plant-based food the default can help reshape what we think of as a “normal” meal.

- Toss tofu in a bowl with the vegan mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice or vinegar, garlic powder, and cumin. Stir in the celery, pickle, and onions. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Use less salt if garnishing with black salt, which also adds a great egg-y flavor.
