Whether you’re a vegan veteran or just trying it out for Veganuary, you might be missing some old breakfast favourites like eggs.

Australian dietitian and blogger Ellie Bullen, who documents plant-based recipes for her large following, has released a tutorial on how to replicate vegan fried eggs.

If you miss having it sunny side up with your avocado on toast then fret not, the influencer has a vegan alternative to get your teeth into.

And the finished product – made up of Pumpkin and black salt – tastes just like the real thing, she says.

Vegan fried eggs

The Ingredients

For the yolk

  • 170g pumpkin
  • 1 tbsp of nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp of cornflour
  • 2 tbsp of water
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp of black pepper
  • Pinch of Himalayan salt
  • 1/4 tsp of black salt (kala namak)

For the egg white

  • 1/4 cup of rice flour
  • 1/4 cup of coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp of water
  • Good pinch of salt

An Instagram post of the fake eggs garnered over 17,000 likes and fans and skeptics alike also weighed in on Ellie’s YouTube channel where she uploaded the tutorial.

She detailed the instructions on how to make the breakfast goods, starting with boiling and chopping the pumpkin.

Then you put together the yolk ingredients and mix with the cooked pumpkin, using a blender.

In a separate bowl, mix your egg whites using the listed ingredients.

Heat a pan with a teaspoon of oil, adding in a tablespoon of the egg white mix. Allow to simmer under pot lid for ten seconds. Add one tablespoon of pumpkin to make the ‘yolk’.

Leave under the lid for 30 seconds to let whites become crispy. Place on top of bread (sourdough and avocado is a winner) and enjoy.
