Recipe for Vegan Egg Patty

This vegan egg patty mimics the taste of a fried egg. All you need to do is cook some pan-fried tofu with black salt (kala namak) to get that eggy taste and texture.

By using thin slices of medium-firm tofu, it helps mimic the texture of a real fried egg. Frying with oil adds that slight crispness on the outside, but still soft on the inside making it a great vegan option for a tofu fried egg.

This recipe is high in protein and perfect for high protein meal prep ideas for the week!

Ingredients


How To Make Tofu Fried Egg (Vegan)

Start by heating oil on a non-stick pan on medium high heat. Slice medium-firm tofu into large thin circles, rectangles, or squares depending on your preference for an egg patty.

Next, fry the tofu slices on each side for around 3-4 minutes until slightly golden. Sprinkle some black salt (kala namak) on each side of the egg patty to get that eggy flavour. If you don’t want it super “eggy” just sprinkle a little bit of kala namak on one side of the vegan egg patty.

While the pan-fried tofu is cooking, you can make the “yolk” by following Mary’s Test Kitchen’s recipe.

    This is a simple dish but tastes very egg like. I would definitely recommend. Kala Namak is a must for everyone.

  2. 5 stars
    Probably the easiest vegan egg recipe I’ve tried- a couple of the others are too complicated and ended up disappointing. This one is simple yet effective. Tastes very similar to an egg especially with the yolk. Thank you!
