Vegan Fried “Eggs”

One of the most common things that plant-based people miss is eggs, and I do love a good fried egg. Give these babies a try, they’ll knock your socks off!

Vegan Fried “Eggs”


For the whites:

  • 1 package pressed tofu
  • 1 tbsp miso paste
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp black salt
  • water, as needed
  • oil, for frying

For the yolks:

  • 2 tbsp mashed potato flakes
  • 1 tsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/3 cup hot water
  • 1/4 tsp tumeric
  • 1/4 tsp black salt
  • 2 tsp grapeseed oil


  1. Wrap the tofu block in paper towel, place between two plates, and put a book or heavy object on top. Let the tofu press for at least 30 min.
  2. Use a 1/2 cup dry measure to cut discs into the tofu block, and slice each disc in half width-wise, so you’re left with twice as many thinner discs.
  3. Use a shot glass to cut a hole in the middle of each disc.
  4. Mix remaining whites ingredients, and add water until the marinade is a saucy consistency.
  5. Dip the discs in the marinade, put in an airtight container, and pour the remaining marinade on top. Let soak in the fridge for at least 2 hours, or overnight, if possible.
  6. Mix all yolk ingredients together in a bowl. Let stand on the counter for 10 minutes, to rehydrate mashed potato flakes.
  7. Heat some oil in a frying pan. Place the egg white discs in the frying pan, fry until golden, and flip. Add a scoop of egg yolk to the hole in the middle of the disc, and cook a few more minutes. The yolk should hold together.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
