Vegan Fried Eggs

There is not much I love more than eating breakfast, especially when it's at lunch time or dinner time.  Most breakfast foods are pretty easy to make vegan, however one of my favorites is extremely difficult to recreate, the fried egg.  Earlier this year I finally stumbled upon a recipe for a vegan fried egg on VegWeb, and it wound up being as close to the real deal as I think you can get.
There is not much I love more than eating breakfast, especially when it's at lunch time or dinner time.  Most breakfast foods are pretty easy to make vegan, however one of my favorites is extremely difficult to recreate, the fried egg.  Earlier this year I finally stumbled upon a recipe for a vegan fried egg on VegWeb, and it wound up being as close to the real deal as I think you can get.



Ingredients:

1 block firm tofu
vegan margarine
1 tablespoon carrot juice
1 tablespoon flax seed oil
1 tablespoon vegetable broth
1-1/2 teaspoons arrowroot powder
3/4 teaspoon vegan mayonnaise (I use Vegenaise)
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste

Directions:

1) Cut tofu into the shape of a fried egg, so that it is thin at the periphery and thick in the middle. Insert broad bladed knife horizontally through the tofu near the bottom. Where the yolk should be, use a shot class to cookie cut out a yolk hole all the way down to the blade. Remove blade.

2) Fry both sides in vegan margarine until golden brown. Set aside. Now make yolk.

3) In a microwaveable glass custard dish, mix together carrot juice flax seed oil, vegetable broth, arrowroot powder, and vegan mayonnaise. Heat in microwave 20 seconds. (The ideal end product will be a tad runny, not too globby. If too globby, either heat less or add less arrowroot.) It has a very nice yellow-orange yolk color.

4) Add yolk into browned yolk hole and re-fry top for 10-20 seconds. Salt and pepper as you like.

As a variation I added nutritional yeast into the yolk and I think it helped with the flavor.
