Final Vegan Fried Egg Recipe!

It's over, but it wasn't easy!
By: Rocky Shepheard & Sandy DeFino
(As with any recipe, please verify that you have no allergies to any of the ingredients)
......
Yolk:
Ingredients: (for approximately one dozen yolks)
2 grams Sodium Alginate dissolved in 200 ml. warm water.
5 tsp. Nutritional Yeast Flakesy
3/8 tsp Beta-Carotene Powder
1/4 tsp Black Salt (Kala Namuk)
Bowl containing 5 grams Calcium Chloride dissolved in 500 ml warm water
Bowl of 500 ml cold water

Procedure:

Blend (in a blender) the dissolved Sodium Alginate, Nutritional Yeast Flakes, Beta-Carotene Powder and Black Salt until all ingredients are very well blended. Let sit for 10 minutes to reduce bubbles. Pour small amount (slightly less than 1 Tbsp) into mold (you can use a Tbsp measuring spoon with a ROUNDED shape as a mold, not FLAT or OVAL but rounded, see picture). Set in freezer until solid. Keep level to horizontal. Remove from mold by setting bottom of Tbsp in a small amount of warm water briefly. Place yolk into dissolved Calcium Chloride bath for 2 minutes. Use slotted spoon to gently remove yolk and place in bowl of cold water for 30 seconds. Remove with slotted spoon and place on flat plate.


White:
Ingredients: (for approximately one dozen whites)

3 - 12.3 oz boxes of extra firm Silken Tofu
6 tsp Carrageenan powder
1/2 to 1 tsp Black Salt
margarine (for frying)

Procedure:

Crumble tofu into the bowl of a food processor. Use a food processor to blend thesilken tofu until a super creamy consistency is achieved. It will be necessary to stop blending and scrape the sides of the bowl at least 2-3 times. Add carrageenan powder and black salt to tofu and blend again until all is incorporated. Melt 1 tsp or so of margarine in a frying pan at medium high heat. Scoop approximately 4-5 Tbsp of the tofu mixture into the buttered pan. Use a spatula to shape the tofu like an egg white. You can drag the spatula along the top of the tofu to flatten / smooth the top. After shaping mixture should be about 1/2" thick. Turn heat to low and let cook until light brown - approximately 8-10 minutes. It should be browned enough to easily flip with a spatula without breaking the shape. Flip the white. Use a spoon or round item (we used a cap from a bottle of vitamins) to cut a hole through the middle of the white all the way to the pan. Try to make it as close as possible to the size of the yolk. Remove white from hole. Place yolk carefully into hole - domed side up. Allow that side to fry until lightly browned. Carefully flip white and yolk together and allow to fry for a minute or two more to heat yolk. Yolk may break with too high or too long a heat. Remove to plate, salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy your vegan fried egg!

Alternative cooking method for better looking vegan fried egg:

Melt 1 tsp or so of margarine in a frying pan at medium high heat. Scoop approximately 4-5 Tbsp of the tofu mixture into the buttered pan. Use a spatula to shape the tofu like an egg white. You can drag the spatula along the top of the tofu to flatten / smooth the top. After shaping mixture should be about 1/2" thick. Turn heat to low and let cook until light brown - approximately 8-10 minutes. Use a spoon or round item (we used a cap from a bottle of vitamins) to cut a hole through the middle of the white all the way to the pan. Try to make it as close as possible to the size of the yolk. Remove white from hole. Place yolk carefully into hole - domed side up. Place on flat plate. Apply a bit of vegan butten very gently on the yolk and microwave for 3-6 seconds to just melt the vegan butter and generally heat the entire vegan fried egg. (This method requires less frying and as such less burning of the tofu allowing a more natural looking vegan fried egg. Over heating in microwave will cause the yolk to become less dippy.See more
