Vegan Egg Options

There are lots of choices if you want something “egg-like” as a vegan. Tofu scrambles are delicious. Commercially available products like Vegg’s Power Scramble are another option. But if you’d like something more like a boiled or poached egg there aren’t as many choices.

Avocados Are Delicious

That’s where avocado eggs are deliciously helpful. They’re firm and full of healthy fat and have a sort of egg-like shape. I decided to make something like an avocado poached egg after finding these little dishes that look like huge egg cups. I don’t know what they were originally intended for, but they’re perfect for hold avos!

Kala Namak or Indian Himalayan Black Salt

Kala Namak is also known as Indian Himalayan Black Salt and can be found in some groceries and can also be ordered online

Kala Namak Black Salt

Indian Himalayan Black Salt is actually quite pink when it’s ground up and it has a high sulfur content.

Kala Namak Black Salt

Because of its high sulfur content, kala namak both tastes and smells like real eggs (which also contain a lot of sulfur). This eggy salt can be added to tofu scrambles, the commercial products, or anything made with avocados and will be very much like eggs. 

Vegan Egg Yolk

But what about the middle? What can make a vegan egg yolk? Well, this might not totally fool non-vegans but this vegan egg yolk is super tasty, eggy, and has zero cholesterol.

I’ve used almond butter for the protein and mixed it with a bit of maple syrup, mustard, and kala namak.

Then I sprinkled the whole thing with salt, pepper, crushed red pepper flakes, and some chives from the garden. Vegan bacon bits would be nice on the top, too!
