Vegan Fried Egg

By far, one of our most popular recipes is the Vegan Fried Egg. With more than a thousand inquiries into this delicious recipe, it's no wonder that it's at the top of our favorites-list too!

Before our vegan days, we loved fried eggs. They were lusciously rich and decadent. A semi-firm egg-white combined with a silky, creamy yolk was the perfect combination of texture and flavor.

With a little culinary creativity, and a few trials (and errors), we were finally able to recreate this breakfast favorite.

For the Vegan Egg Yolk

1 cup of cold water
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon Nutritional Yeast Seasoning
1 tablespoon canola oil
1/2 teaspoon Black Salt (kala namak)
1/2 teaspoon turmeric

Combine all of the above ingredients into a small saucepan and whisk until well blended. Place the pan over medium heat and whisk continuously, while cooking until the mixture begins to bubble; about 5 minutes. Keep it bubbling for another 30 seconds, then remove it from the heat, cover and set it aside.

For the Vegan Egg White

1/2 to 1 block of firm or extra-firm tofu
1 teaspoon vegan butter

Drain off the water from the tofu. Using a sharp knife, cut the block of tofu into 1/8-inch to 1/4-inch thick slabs, then cut corners away to make a round/oval shape. Using the tip of a spoon, cut out a hole in the center that measures about 1 1/2-inches in diameter.

Next, heat a non-stick skillet (preferably cast iron) over medium heat, then add the butter. When the butter has melted and is beginning to sizzle, fry the tofu until it's lightly browned and slightly crisp around the edges; about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Place the "egg white" onto a plate, then fill the hole with the "egg yolk mixture."

Season with a pinch of salt and some freshly ground pepper and enjoy!

If making the fried "egg" look like an egg isn't all that important to you - don't worry - looks aren't everything! Simply place the cooked tofu onto a plate and drizzle the "egg yolk" over the top. It's delicious either way!
