1. Cut tofu into 1" squares, 1/2" thick. Coat with nutritional yeast. Fry
in oil over medium heat until golden brown and slightly chewy. Drain on
paper towels.

2. Cut potatoes and sweet potatoes into 1" cubes. Boil until tender. Drain.

3. Mix together tofu, potatoes, apple, 3 of the eggs, peas, and onion. Add
enough mayonnaise to make it creamy or to taste. Add dill weed, fresh if
possible. Add enough vinegar, prepared mustard, or Durkee's Sauce
(basically a mustard-vinegar sauce) to give it a tang.

for beauty. Variations and substitutions:

1. Broil the tofu to reduce fat. It won't have a nicy chewy texture,

2. Substitute chicken for the tofu (as in the original recipe).

3. Substitute plain, non-fat yogurt for some of the mayonnaise to reduce
fat content.
