VEGAN SHIRRED EGGS

Oeufs sur le Plat - Oeufs Miroirs

...I have no idea why this recipe has an English Title and French subtitles...that's backwards...

...Julia just gives instructions not to cook these eggs in the oven as it toughens them...

...the instructions for the egg whites are in the VEGAN OEUFS POCHÉS...
...but instead of the potato 'yolk' which is more like a hard boiled egg...we need a fairly runny vegan yolk here...so I gathered some simple ingredients that you probably already have on hand...turmeric (just for colour)...corn starch...and Kala Namak (black salt) for some vegan egg yolk-y flavor...
...just cook some cornstarch and water until it forms a thick clear gravy...
...then add some Kala Namak and just a tiny amount of turmeric until you get the right colour...it doesn't take much at all...

...perfect vegan egg yolks...
...generously grease a flat dish with some vegan butter...
...add a scoop of your vegan egg whites...and just let it form a little pool...
...then spoon your vegan yolks on top...
...and finally spoon on a thin layer of vegan egg white over the yolks...
...Julia says"the white is softly set and tender...and the yolk is liquid but covered with a shimmering translucent film"...
...served for breakfast...of course...with toast and applesauce...
...added a sprinkling of black pepper...
...they were really 'eggy'...
... and surprisingly good...

  2. I keep meaning to have a go at making your version of vegan eggs and not got round to making it, but whenever i see you blog about it I have such great admiration for you. These are awesome.
