Vegan Sunday Brunch - Vegg 'n' Bacon English Muffin


More experimenting with The Vegg vegan egg yolk. Runny Vegg yolk and a Vegg egg patty, with crispy tofu rashers, all on a toasted english muffin. Vegan brunch heaven. Read on for what we did and what we might do better next time.

Crispy Tofu Rashers:
Cut smoked tofu into thin slices, brush with soy sauce then vegetable oil on both sides. Grill (broil) under a medium hot grill until browned, on each side. Keep warm in a low oven.

Runny Vegg Yolk:
The egg yolk is easy, just blend a tablespoon of The Vegg powder with 100ml water (a little less than half a cup) and warm in a pan (or microwave).

Vegg Patty:
The Vegg doesn't set when cooked so you need to add proteins or starches that swell and set. Starches tend to make everything taste like a pancake when cooked with The Vegg so we used Qurd. Qurd is simply the cheese you make when you strain soya yoghurt through muslin until firm. Instructions for Qurd here. We used the qurd from 1 litre (2 pints) of soya yoghurt but you could make half this amount. We blended a tablespoon of The Vegg powder with 100ml water, then blended this with the qurd. We also added salt and pepper and 4 tablespoons of potato starch and left the mix for an hour for the starch to thicken.  To cook the patties, oil a small frying pan and heat up, then carefully drop two tablespoons of the mix in the middle. Let it cook on a medium heat for 5 minutes then flip and cook for another 5 until the patty is set through.

Qurd cooks in a quite an egg like way, but the starch we used made our patty a little pancake-like. We only added the starch because of the liquid used to mix The Vegg, so next time we will try just blending the Vegg powder with the qurd to see if we can get a more cooked egg-white texture.

We served our patty, yoke and rashers on a toasted english muffin.

  1. This looks awesome - one of my fave meals except I've always had it with hen eggs. Can't wait to get my hands on The Vegg.
