If you're interested in a vegan fried egg or egg yolk substitute, you're going to love my vegan egg recipe! It looks exactly like a fried egg, just without the cholesterol or animal cruelty! In this recipe, I turned tomatoes into a vegan egg yolks using new techniques, some food science, and algae!

Cuisine: Vegan
For the Yolk:
For the Egg White:
For Frying:
The Night Before:
  1. Mix together distilled water and socium alginate in a blender on high, and place into an airtight container. Place in the fridge overnight.
On the Day of Serving:
  1. Preheat oven 300F
  2. Drizzle tomato with olive oil, and cook for 45 mins, flipping at 30 mins.
  3. Meanwhile, remove the alginate gel from the fridge to come to room temp.
  4. While the tomato is roasting, make the egg white.
  5. Blend all egg white ingredients until smooth.
  6. Blend tomato, ¼ cup silken tofu, 3 tbsp olive oil, mustard powder, yeast, white pepper, calcium lactate, black salt and soy milk, as needed until smooth.
  7. Place a scoop (I use a coffee scoop) of the mixture into the gel and quickly but carefully push the alginate over the mixture to create a sphere. Let it sit for 30 seconds.
  8. Remove with a slotted spoon & wipe of excess gel and place in a cold water bath until ready to use.
  9. Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add a drizzle of oil into the pan to heat.
  10. Add 2 tbsp of the ‘egg white’ mix to the centre of the pan and cover for 10 seconds. Remove lid and fry until the ‘egg white’ starts to get a bit crispy on the edges.
  11. Add egg yolk and carefully remove from the pan.
  12. Serve
