Vegan Fried Eggs
This recipe is perfect to fulfill the craving for soft and drippy yolks from fried eggs! I love the way the tofu-based egg white and Vegg Yolk combination really capture the flavours and textures of chicken’s eggs. Paired with vegan pesto and toast toppings, this is such a perfect savoury breakfast.
I got the idea for this recipe from a TikTok trend where people would cook a fried egg in pesto or chili oil in the pan. While I don’t eat eggs, I still wanted to try this out! I whipped up a quick vegan egg white, egg yolk, pesto and my favourite toast toppings! To save time in the morning, you can make the pesto, yolk mixture and egg white mixture ahead of time, then in the morning, cook and assemble!

INGREDIENTS FOR FRIED EGGS (VEGAN):
- Vegg Yolk Powder
Use Store-bought pesto or make my vegan pesto:
- Pine Nuts, Walnuts, or Almonds
- Nutritional Yeast
- Vegan Parmesan (optional)
- Olive Oil
- 1 tbsp Vegg Yolk powder
- ¼ cup of water
- 1 large handful of basil
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- ⅓ cup pine nuts, walnuts, or almonds
- ¼ cup Nutritional yeast
- ¼ cup vegan parmesan (optional)
- ½ cup olive oil
- salt to taste
- Blend tofu, potato starch, and black salt until smooth
- Blend Vegg Yolk powder with ¼ cup of water until smooth.
- In a food processor blend basil, garlic, nuts of choice, nutritional yeast and vegan parmesan, if using. While the processor is blending, stream in olive oil ¼ cup at a time until the pesto is combined. Taste and season with salt.
- Over medium heat, heat a medium pan. Add pesto and give it a spread, so it coats the bottom of the pan.
- Gently pour the vegan egg white into the pan.
- Cook the vegan egg white for 2 minutes, then pour about 1 tbsp of vegan egg yolk onto each vegan egg white. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes, and cook for about 2-3 minutes or until the whites are set.
- Meanwhile, prepare your toast, and spread avocado or vegan chevre on top.
- Gently, place the vegan fried egg onto the toast.
- Drizzle with vegan honey or agave and enjoy.
