Here is our vegan alternative to fried eggs. Including a crispy fried edge on the “egg white” and the waxy, soft consistency of the “egg yolk”. Crazy! The preparation does not require any ready-made powder and still requires neither a chemistry laboratory nor a wild hodgepodge of ingredients. The most unusual ingredients are probably the black sulfur salt kala namak (important for the egg taste) and rice flour (important for the right consistency).
Kala namak is available in organic, natural food and health food stores. You can actually buy rice flour in almost every organic market and Asian shop. Even normal supermarkets (especially larger Edekas and Rewes) now sell both products more often. Just ask.
In the test, soy cream was our favorite for the vegan egg white. But coconut milk also works quite well. We did not test any other vegan cream. However, oat or rice cream usually have a lower fat content and should therefore not give a quite as good result. But feel free to leave us a comment if you should try it.
The slightly greasy, creamy consistency of the vegan egg yolk is a great addition to dishes in which the fried egg is mixed with the rest of the dish after serving. Our bibimbap could, for example, be upgraded with it.
We already have one or the other new recipe in mind that we want to cook and put online over the next few weeks and months. The vegan fried eggs also simply taste good on bread / toast. Or with potatoes and spinach, as you can see in the pictures.
