This vegan fried egg is such a fun and delicious recipe. It has a goopy yolk sauce that drips out of the egg when you bite into just perfect for toast dipping or a great big messy breakfast sandwich. Youll be shocked how much this vegan fried egg tastes like the ones you grew up eating!
Now its time to inject the egg whites with the yolk
Okay, dont let me lose you here. This part is easier than it sounds. All you need is one of those flavor injector gadgets people use to flavor meats and the like. We got ours for cheap at our local grocery store; its really similar to this one on Amazon.
With that in mind, VERY carefully move the injector back and forth, making sure you keep it level. Tilt it to one side and repeat this back and forth motion, then tilt to the other and repeat again.
Some brands will crack more easily and be harder to inject with the yolk. If you get a tofu that seems like it will crack easier, you may want to slice the tofu block into 2 or 3 rectangles, rather than 4.
2. If you have trouble with the injecting or just want this to be really easy, feel free to fry up the egg whites without injecting the yolk, and drop a little dollop of yolk sauce on top of the egg white before serving.
Like I mentioned before, I am a HUGE fan of breakfast foods. Not only is breakfast food so delicious, but it is also so important to eat a healthy, filling breakfast each morning. Breakfast literally means breaking the fast, as it is the first meal you will eat after fasting while sleeping. Eating a fueling breakfast is the best way to jumpstart your metabolism; you are setting the energy levels for the whole day and letting your body know how much energy it needs to conserve and how much energy it needs to store. If you dont start your day with a filling breakfast, it may cue your body into storing more energy than it needs to.
There are so many reasons why eggs are the perfect way to start your day. Not only are they super nutritious but they are actually perfectly balanced in proteins and fats. While a lot of my clients are adamant about incorporating eggs into their diet because they contain a high amount of cholesterol, I always remind them that the dietary guidelines actually reversed those recommendations 5 years ago. Research actually does not show a strong connection between eating cholesterol and high bad cholesterol. In fact, eggs are packed with so many essential nutrients, like choline and vitamin D, that arent found in too many other foods. Eggs really tie this Vegetarian Egg Breakfast Sandwich together, but feel free to substitute whole eggs with only egg whites or egg-like products for those allergic or following a vegan diet.
Were all supposed to be getting 5 to 13 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. Thats between 2. -6. cups of the green stuff. What better way to start meeting these goals than getting some in your morning meal? On my Vegetarian Egg Breakfast Sandwich, I wanted to add some type of green. Incorporating more veggies into your meals is so important because it adds so many nutrients, vitamins, and minerals into your meals. Leafy greens, like kale, spinach, and arugula, are rich in fiber and numerous vitamins like vitamin A, vitamin K, and some B vitamins. Veggies are so amazing because of how versatile they are. Feel free to switch out veggies you arent a huge fan of more ones that you really enjoy.
Like I mentioned before, eggs are the staple ingredient in this Simple Egg and Veggie Sandwich. You can choose to cook them however you prefer, whether its scrambled, fried, or poached. Its really up to you! Always feel free to sub in a vegan option of which there are many now on the market.
I always start with a solid leafy green to add to my sandwiches because it adds a nice crunch and they are super rich in numerous vitamins and minerals. Kale pairs well here because its hearty and sturdy. nd its not lettuce so it seems to fit better at breakfast to me. Another good option for this sandwich is baby spinach because it is soft and slightly sweet. I also love adding tomatoes to my sandwiches! Tomatoes add a balanced flavor and texture here in this Vegetarian Egg Breakfast Sandwich; youll often find them in breakfast food. I also suggest something crunchy like sprouts or microgreens and then definitely slather on the avocado.
The thing I really like about this sandwich is that its got some unique ingredients that you wont typically find. I have added some roasted pepitas to add a nice crunch to the sandwich. Pepitas are essentially pumpkin seeds, and once you roast them and season them with salt and pepper they become a delicious, crunchy snack. And they are such a nice touch to this sandwich! They provide an extra crunch that some sandwiches typically lack in. Additionally, I like to make a fun spread or aioli to switch up the typical mayo seen on sandwiches. My go-to is Sriracha mayo, which requires just the two ingredients, and is the perfect spread that adds a little kick to this sandwich.
Fun fact: I used to be a fiend for McDonalds Egg McMuffins and Sausage Egg Biscuits, and I knew Id have to formulate my own version after going plant-based. These tofu patties make an easy, flavorful substitute for eggs in breakfast sandwiches or vegan benedicts.
