Ingredients

Vegan egg yolk

  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tsp corn starch
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • ¼ tsp turmeric powder
  • ¾ tsp black salt (also called kala namak. This gives the yolk an eggy flavor. )

Breakfast sandwich

  • 4 whole wheat english muffins (check ingredients that they're vegan)
  • 1 package extra firm tofu (Optional - press it if you'd like this extra crispy)
  • 1 tbsp TBL vegan butter or margarine
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • Sprinkle of black salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • optional tasty additions Gardein or Beyond vegan breakfast sausage patties, wilted spinach and vegan cheese

Instructions

To make the vegan fried "egg"

  • Pour 1 cup of water and 3 tsp of corn starch in a sauce pan - no heat
  • Stir until corn starch dissolves
  • Turn heat on medium low and add 1 TBL nutritional yeast, 1 TBL vegetable oil and ¼ tsp turmeric powder
  • Stir on low heat until egg yolk thickens - about 3-5 minutes
  • Turn heat off and stir in ¾ tsp of black salt
  • Set egg yolk aside
  • Drain your tofu, turn it on its side and slice into 4 thin slices
  • Cut the corners off if you'd like it to have a round, egg shape
  • Melt 1 TBL of vegan butter in a saute pan on medium heat
  • Once pan is warm, set your tofu slice in and DON'T TOUCH  for 3-5 minutes (this ensures it will get crispy and golden brown)
  • Flip the tofu  and cook for 3-5 minutes
  • Turn off heat and season with ½ tsp of garlic powder, black pepper and a sprinkle of black salt
  • Cut a small hole in the middle of the tofu and eat the middle so it doesn't go to waste.  We will be pouring the egg yolk mixture into the center in a moment.
  • Put it all together
  • Toast your english muffin
  • Smash the avocado onto the english muffin & season with a little black salt and pepper
  • Place the tofu with the hole in the middle onto the english muffin
  • Gently pour the "egg yolk"  mixture into the hole in the tofu. Add as much as you'd like
  • Add any additions you'd like (wilted spinach, sautéed vegan breakfast sausage patty or vegan cheese)
